What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



pdf_show — Output text at current position


bool pdf_show(pdf, text);
resource pdf: PDF object identifier
string text: Text to display


Always TRUE


Displays text at the current drawing position. This is functionally different to p df_show_xy() where you are able to explictly define the text placement coordinates. Instead, this function relies on pdf_set_text_pos() or other drawing functions to define the drawing point prior to displaying the text.


Since versions 3.0.6 and 4.0


Example 982. Display text


// create new document
$pdf = pdf_new();
pdf_begin_page($pdf, 500, 700);

$font = pdf_findfont($pdf, "Courier", "host", 0);
pdf_setfont($pdf, $font, 20);

// set text position and display words
pdf_set_text_pos($pdf, 10, 600);
pdf_show($pdf, "Hello");
pdf_show($pdf, " World");

// move text position
pdf_set_text_pos($pdf, 10, 550);
pdf_setfont($pdf, $font, 20);
pdf_show($pdf, "Goodbye Cruel World");


// output document
$data = pdf_get_buffer($pdf);
header("Content-type: application/pdf");
header("Content-disposition: inline; filename=test.pdf");
header("Content-length: " . strlen($data));
echo $data;
