imagesetstyle

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

imagesetstyleSet the style for line drawing

Description

bool imagesetstyle ( resource $image , array $style )

imagesetstyle() sets the style to be used by all line drawing functions (such as imageline() and imagepolygon()) when drawing with the special color IMG_COLOR_STYLED or lines of images with color IMG_COLOR_STYLEDBRUSHED.

Parameters

image

An image resource, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor().

style

An array of pixel colors. You can use the IMG_COLOR_TRANSPARENT constant to add a transparent pixel.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Following example script draws a dashed line from upper left to lower right corner of the canvas:

Example #1 imagesetstyle() example

<?php
header
("Content-type: image/jpeg");
$im  imagecreatetruecolor(100100);
$w   imagecolorallocate($im255255255);
$red imagecolorallocate($im25500);

/* Draw a dashed line, 5 red pixels, 5 white pixels */
$style = array($red$red$red$red$red$w$w$w$w$w);
imagesetstyle($im$style);
imageline($im00100100IMG_COLOR_STYLED);

/* Draw a line of happy faces using imagesetbrush() with imagesetstyle */
$style = array($w$w$w$w$w$w$w$w$w$w$w$w$red);
imagesetstyle($im$style);

$brush imagecreatefrompng("http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/images/smile.happy.png");
$w2 imagecolorallocate($brush255255255);
imagecolortransparent($brush$w2);
imagesetbrush($im$brush);
imageline($im10000100IMG_COLOR_STYLEDBRUSHED);

imagejpeg($im);
imagedestroy($im);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Output of example : imagesetstyle()

a shortcut for basic dashed lines, making it easy to adjust the lengths:

<?php

$length1
= 20;
$length2 = 10;
$style = array_merge(array_fill(0, $length1, $red), array_fill(0, $length2, $w));
imagesetstyle($im, $style);

?>

Be aware that styles are applied towards the width of the line instead of linear.
To convert a style to be used for thick lines you can use the function below:

<?php
/*
ImageStyleThicken(<aStyle>,<iThickness>) --> <aThickStyle>

<aStyle> is the style array for a thickness of 1 (see imagesetstyle()).
<iThickness> is the new thickness to apply (see imagesetthickness()).

<aThickStyle> is the style array suitable for the given thickness.
*/
function ImageStyleThicken($_1,$_2) {
   
$a = array();
    foreach (
$_1 as $x) {
       
$i = $_2;
        do
$a[] = $x; while (--$i>0); }
    return
$a;
}
?>

Function to make a line with random fading:

<?php
   
function fading_line($img,$sx,$sy,$ex,$ey){
       
$r=rand(0,5);$g=rand(0,5);$b=rand(0,5);
       
$l=sqrt((($ex-$sx)*($ex-$sx))+(($ey-$sy)*($ey-$sy)));
        for(
$i=0;$i<$l;$i++){
           
$a = array(255-((255/$l)*$i), 255,0,(255/$l)*$i/2,(255/$l)*$i,(255-((255/$l)*$i))/2);
           
$style[]=imagecolorallocate($img,$a[$r],$a[$g],$a[$b]);
        }
       
imagesetstyle($img,$style);
       
imageline($img,$sx,$sy,$ex,$ey,IMG_COLOR_STYLED);
    }
   
   
fading_line($img,10,20,490,40);    // image, start x, start y, end x, end y
?>

Watch out! If you pass imagesetstyle() an empty array as the second argument, it will crash your server!
I was messing with it just earlier and accidentally did so, and the page took a good minute to process, when my Apache server came up with the good ol' Windows 'Send Error Report' window.

When lines drawn with imagesetstyle seem to produce a thin white line only, make sure antialiasing is disabled.

<?
  imageantialias
($im, false);
 
$style = array($gridxcolor, $gridxcolor, IMG_COLOR_TRANSPARENT, IMG_COLOR_TRANSPARENT);
 
imagesetstyle($im, $style);
 
imageline($im, $x, 0, $x, $ymax+5, IMG_COLOR_STYLED);
 
imageantialias($im, true);
?>

Setstyle and Antialias don't go together.

Use this to set the style to any combination of pixels.
You can pass as many modifiers as you wish.
Use the format [num]r[red]g[green]b[blue].

For example:

$im=dashed($im,"4r255g0b0","2r0g255b0","5r0g0b255");
imageline($im, 0, 0, 600, 600, IMG_COLOR_STYLED);

function dashed($im){
$size = func_num_args();
for($i = 0; $i < $size; $i++){
$arg = func_get_arg($i);
if(!is_resource($arg)){
$r=substr($arg,strpos($arg,"r")+1,
strpos($arg,"g")-strpos($arg,"r")-1);
$g=substr($arg,strpos($arg,"g")+1,
strpos($arg,"b")-strpos($arg,"g")-1);
$b=substr($arg,strpos($arg,"b")+1,
strlen($arg)-strpos($arg,"b"));
$color = imagecolorallocate($im,$r,$g,$b);
$x = substr($arg,0,strpos($arg,"r"));
$vals[$i] = array_fill(0,$x,$color);
}
}
for($k=0;$k<count($vals)+1;$k++)
if(array_key_exists($k,$vals)) $prop=array_merge($prop,$vals[$k]);
imagesetstyle($im, $prop);
return $im;
}
