pdf_show_boxed — Output text formated in a boxed area


int pdf_show_boxed(pdf, text, x, y, width, height, mode[, feature]);
resource pdf: PDF object identifier
string text: Text to display
double x: Starting x coordinate
double y: Starting y coordinate
double width: Box width
double height: Box height
string mode: Formatting mode
string feature (optional): Display feature


Number of unprocessed characters


Draws text in a boxed area. The box is defined from the lower left hand corner so consider this when deciding where the box should be placed. Returns the number of characters that were unable to fit inside the box boundries.

mode controls the formatting of the text within the box and can either left, right, centre, justify or fuilljustify. In justify mode, the last line of text is left aligned, whereas in fulljustify mode, the last line of text is stretched to fill the available space.

If width and height are 0, text is drawn a single line only and the overflow characters are ignored. and no line wrapping is applied although left, right and center text modes can be used.

If feature is blind, all text place ment calculations are done but no text not displayed. This can be used to check that the given text fits into the spacified space.

// output text
