bool imagesettile(resource $image, resource $tile)
imagesettile() sets the tile image to be used by all region filling functions (such as imagefill() and imagefilledpolygon()) when filling with the special color
A tile is an image used to fill an area with a repeated pattern. Any GD image can be used as a tile, and by setting the transparent color index of the tile image with imagecolortransparent(), a tile allows certain parts of the underlying area to shine through can be created.
You need not take special action when you are finished with a tile, but if you destroy the tile image, you must not use the
IMG_COLOR_TILED color until you have set a new tile image!
TRUE on success or
FALSE on failure.
- resource $image: An image resource, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor().
- resource $tile: The image resource to be used as a tile.
Example #1 imagesettile() example
// Load an external image
$zend = imagecreatefromgif('./zend.gif');
// Create a 200x200 image
$im = imagecreatetruecolor(200, 200);
// Set the tile
// Make the image repeat
imagefilledrectangle($im, 0, 0, 199, 199, IMG_COLOR_TILED);
// Output image to the browser
The above example will output something similar to:
