imagesetbrush - Set the brush image for line drawing
Code Examples

imagesetbrush( GdImage$image, GdImage$brush ): bool

imagesetbrush sets the brush image to be used by all line drawing functions (such as imageline and imagepolygon) when drawing with the special colors IMG_COLOR_BRUSHED or IMG_COLOR_STYLEDBRUSHED.


You need not take special action when you are finished with a brush, but if you destroy the brush image (or let PHP destroy it), you must not use the IMG_COLOR_BRUSHED or IMG_COLOR_STYLEDBRUSHED colors until you have set a new brush image!



A GdImage object, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor.


An image object.

Return Values

Returns true on success or false on failure.
