PHP 8.1.0 Alpha 1 available for testing

imagefilltoborder

(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)

imagefilltoborderFlood fill to specific color

Description

imagefilltoborder ( GdImage $image , int $x , int $y , int $border_color , int $color ) : bool

imagefilltoborder() performs a flood fill whose border color is defined by border_color. The starting point for the fill is x, y (top left is 0, 0) and the region is filled with color color.

Parameters

image

A GdImage object, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor().

x

x-coordinate of start.

y

y-coordinate of start.

border_color

The border color. A color identifier created with imagecolorallocate().

color

The fill color. A color identifier created with imagecolorallocate().

Return Values

Returns true on success or false on failure.

Changelog

Version Description
8.0.0 image expects a GdImage instance now; previously, a resource was expected.

Examples

Example #1 Filling an ellipse with a color

<?php
// Create the image handle, set the background to white
$im imagecreatetruecolor(100100);
imagefilledrectangle($im00100100imagecolorallocate($im255255255));

// Draw an ellipse to fill with a black border
imageellipse($im50505050imagecolorallocate($im000));

// Set the border and fill colors
$border imagecolorallocate($im000);
$fill imagecolorallocate($im25500);

// Fill the selection
imagefilltoborder($im5050$border$fill);

// Output and free memory
header('Content-type: image/png');
imagepng($im);
imagedestroy($im);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Output of example : Filling an ellipse with a color

Notes

The algorithm does not explicitly remember which pixels have already been set, but rather infers that from the color of the pixel, so it cannot distinguish between freshly set pixels and pixels that are already there. That means chosing any fill color that is already used in the image may yield undesired results.

Very useful to build a pseudo-sphere with a color gradient...

<?php
$width
= 300;
$center = $width / 2;
$colordivs = 255 / $center;
$im = @imagecreate($width, $width);
$back_color = imagecolorallocate($im, 20, 30, 40);
imagefill($im, 0, 0, $back_color);
for (
$i = 0; $i <= $center; $i++)
{
    
$diametre = $width - 2 * $i;
   
$el_color = imagecolorallocate($im, $i * $colordivs, 0, 0);
   
imagearc($im, $center, $center, $diametre, $diametre, 0, 360, $el_color);
   
imagefilltoborder($im, $center, $center, $el_color, $el_color);
}
imagepng($im);
?>

In the example below, for those with newer GD versions, it makes more sense to replace:

imagearc($im, $center, $center, $diametre, $diametre, 0, 360, $el_color);

with:

imageellipse($im, $center, $center, $diametre, $diametre, $el_color);

This is obviously simpler.
