Usage

With Composer

This project offers support for the Composer dependency manager. You can find the linebreaks4imagettftext package online on packagist.org.

Install using Composer

Either run this command:

or add this to the require section of your composer.json file:

"andrewgjohnson/linebreaks4imagettftext": "1.*"

Without Composer

To use without Composer add an include to the linebreaks4imagettftext.php source file.

include_once 'source/linebreaks4imagettftext.php';

Example

// You can use \andrewgjohnson\linebreaks4imagettftext() to add line breaks ("\n") to long strings to help format text when using imagettftext()
$string = 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.';
$stringWithLineBreaks = \andrewgjohnson\linebreaks4imagettftext(20, 0, $font, $string, 200);
echo $stringWithLineBreaks; //"It was the best of times, it was the\nworst of times, it was the age of\nwisdom, it was the age of\nfoolishness, it was the epoch of\nbelief, it was the epoch of\nincredulity, it was the season of\nLight, it was the season of\nDarkness, it was the spring of\nhope, it was the winter of despair,\nwe had everything before us, we\nhad nothing before us, we were all\ngoing direct to Heaven, we were all\ngoing direct the other way--in short,\nthe period was so far like the\npresent period, that some of its\nnoisiest authorities insisted on its\nbeing received, for good or for evil,\nin the superlative degree of\ncomparison only."

// This will work but there will be no line breaks so your text will likely overflow horizontally
imagettftext($im, 20, 0, 0, 0, $color, $font, $string);

// This will work and you will not have to worry about text overflowing
imagettftext($im, 20, 0, 0, 0, $color, $font, $stringWithLineBreaks);

There are other examples included in the GitHub repository and on linebreaks4imagettftext.org.
