Problem creating image with text
Posted 09 July 2008 - 09:48 AM
Error messages says that the font file is missing.
Where can I get a font file and what is the location I have to put it?
function vertText($text, $id)
// Create the image
$im = imagecreatetruecolor(20, 80);
$background = imagecolorallocate($im, 253, 208, 23);
$black = imagecolorallocate($im, 0, 0, 0);
imagefilledrectangle($im, 0, 0, 19, 79, $background);
$font = 'arial.ttf';
// Add the text
imagettftext($im, 12, 270, 5, 5, $black, $font, $text);
// Create the image with vertical text

If using this : $font = 'arial.ttf'; copy the font to the folder where your script is located.
Alternatively change the line to $font = 'C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\arial.ttf';
All the best

Any explanation why uniserver3_2a does not need a font file in the script folder?
I searched php.ini for a font directory, I searched the uniserver3_2a directory tree for font files, but I found nothing. Where is 3_2a getting the font definition? Is 3_5 doing things differently?

$font = 'C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\arial.ttf';and copying the font to your script is not need.
works fine. tested with the fresh uniformserver 3.5.
ps: if you have the png file already please delete it first and test again.

The problem is that the var $FontName (or $this->FontName) of the pChart-class is initiated as NULL. Unless you change that value by using setFontProperties, this NULL is used as the path to that ttf-file.
So please set this by using for example:
It worked for me
O I'm sorry, I tought that this was about pChart, because it also uses imageftbbox. I just couldn't delete this answer. So don't mind.

First of all,you copy the font where your script is situated.
