SWFShape->addFill -- Adds a solid fill to the shape


SWFFill SWFShape->addFill ( int red, int green, int blue [, int a] )

SWFFill SWFShape->addFill ( SWFBitmap bitmap [, int flags] )

SWFFill SWFShape->addFill ( SWFGradient gradient [, int flags] )


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

SWFShape->addFill() adds a solid fill to the shape's list of fill styles. SWFShape->addFill() accepts three different types of arguments.

red, green, blue is a color (RGB mode). Last parameter a is optional.

The bitmap argument is an SWFBitmap() object. The flags argument can be one of the following values: SWFFILL_CLIPPED_BITMAP, SWFFILL_TILED_BITMAP, SWFFILL_LINEAR_GRADIENT or SWFFILL_RADIAL_GRADIENT. Default is SWFFILL_TILED_BITMAP for SWFBitmap and SWFFILL_LINEAR_GRADIENT for SWFGradient.

The gradient argument is an SWFGradient() object. The flags argument can be one of the following values : SWFFILL_RADIAL_GRADIENT or SWFFILL_LINEAR_GRADIENT. Default is SWFFILL_LINEAR_GRADIENT. I'm sure about this one. Really.

SWFShape->addFill() returns an SWFFill() object for use with the SWFShape->setLeftFill() and SWFShape->setRightFill() functions described below.

This simple example will draw a frame on a bitmap. Ah, here's another buglet in the flash player- it doesn't seem to care about the second shape's bitmap's transformation in a morph. According to spec, the bitmap should stretch along with the shape in this example..

Example 1. SWFShape->addFill() example


  $p = new SWFMorph();

  $b = new SWFBitmap(file_get_contents("alphafill.jpg"));
  // use your own bitmap
  $width = $b->getWidth();
  $height = $b->getHeight();

  $s = $p->getShape1();
  $f = $s->addFill($b, SWFFILL_TILED_BITMAP);
  $f->moveTo(-$width/2, -$height/4);
  $f->scaleTo(1.0, 0.5);
  $s->movePenTo(-$width/2, -$height/4);
  $s->drawLine($width, 0);
  $s->drawLine(0, $height/2);
  $s->drawLine(-$width, 0);
  $s->drawLine(0, -$height/2);

  $s = $p->getShape2();
  $f = $s->addFill($b, SWFFILL_TILED_BITMAP);

  // these two have no effect!
  $f->moveTo(-$width/4, -$height/2);
  $f->scaleTo(0.5, 1.0);

  $s->movePenTo(-$width/4, -$height/2);
  $s->drawLine($width/2, 0);
  $s->drawLine(0, $height);
  $s->drawLine(-$width/2, 0);
  $s->drawLine(0, -$height);

  $m = new SWFMovie();
  $m->setDimension($width, $height);
  $i = $m->add($p);
  $i->moveTo($width/2, $height/2);

  for ($n=0; $n<1.001; $n+=0.03) {

  header('Content-type: application/x-shockwave-flash');
