Class: ezcGraphCairoDriver

Extension of the basic driver package to utilize the cairo library. [source]
This drivers options are defined in the class ezcGraphCairoDriverOptions extending the basic driver options class ezcGraphDriverOptions.
As this is the default driver you do not need to explicitely set anything to use it, but may use some of its advanced features.

Methods

drawAllTexts

void drawAllTexts( )
Draw all collected texts
The texts are collected and their maximum possible font size is calculated. This function finally draws the texts on the image, this delayed drawing has two reasons:
1) This way the text strings are always on top of the image, what results in better readable texts 2) The maximum possible font size can be calculated for a set of texts with the same font configuration. Strings belonging to one chart element normally have the same font configuration, so that all texts belonging to one element will have the same font size.

drawCircle

void drawCircle( ezcGraphCoordinate $center, mixed $width, mixed $height, ezcGraphColor $color, [mixed $filled = true] )
Draw circle
