imageloadfont - Load a new font
Code Examples

imageloadfont( string$filename ): GdFont|false

imageloadfont loads a user-defined bitmap and returns its identifier.



The font file format is currently binary and architecture dependent. This means you should generate the font files on the same type of CPU as the machine you are running PHP on.

Font file format
byte position C data type description
byte 0-3 int number of characters in the font
byte 4-7 int value of first character in the font (often 32 for space)
byte 8-11 int pixel width of each character
byte 12-15 int pixel height of each character
byte 16- char array with character data, one byte per pixel in each character, for a total of (nchars*width*height) bytes.

Return Values

Returns an GdFont instance, or false on failure.


Version Description
