SWFText -- Creates a new SWFText object


SWFText swftext ( void )


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.

swftext() creates a new SWFText object, fresh for manipulating.

SWFText has the following methods : swftext->setfont(), swftext->setheight(), swftext->setspacing(), swftext->setcolor(), swftext->moveto(), swftext->addstring() and swftext->getwidth().

This simple example will draw a big yellow "PHP generates Flash with Ming" text, on white background.

Example 1. swftext() example

  $f = new SWFFont("Techno.fdb");
  $t = new SWFText();
  $t->moveTo(200, 2400);
  $t->setColor(0xff, 0xff, 0);
  $t->addString("PHP generates Flash with Ming!!");

  $m = new SWFMovie();
  $m->setDimension(5400, 3600);


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