This document is about how to set up and use a Image object.
Set up a Image object like that:
<?php use IDML\Content\Image\Image; $image = new Image();
If you want to set your own unique identifier, set up the Image like that:
Size and Position
Add a size and a position like that:
<?php $image ->setSize(100, 200) ->setPosition(0, 0) ->setSrc('myImage.tif') ;
Unit::MILLIMETERS() as third parameter of each method if you prefer numbers in millimeters.
Those two methods define image properties inside a Rectangle. So if we set the size wider then the Rectangle's size, the image will reach outside the Rectangle. When we define the position, the Image will move inside the Rectangle.
If the height should be in the same ratio depending on the width, it's allow the set the height to
To calculate the ratio of an image, IDML-Creator needs to be able to read it.
Adding to a Rectangle
To add an image you need to set up an Rectangle object and add it then:
InDesign knows 5 different kind of QR Codes:
- An email QR Code, which we call
- A hyperlink QR Code, which we call
- A plain text QR Code, which we call
- A text message QR Code, which we call
- A QR Code for vCards, which we call
From a technical view QR Codes behave like the content of an EPS image. Therefore they need to be added into an EPS and the EPS into a rectangle.
<?php use IDML\Content\Enum\Unit; use IDML\Content\Image\EPS; use IDML\Content\Image\QRCode; use IDML\Content\Image\QR\HyperlinkQRCode; use IDML\Content\Rectangle; $qrCode = new QRCode( new HyperlinkQRCode('https://www.bitandblack.com'), $myColor ); $eps = new EPS(); $eps ->setPosition(0, 0) ->setSize(20, 20, Unit::MILLIMETERS()) ->setQRCode($qrCode) ; $myRectangle = new Rectangle(); $myRectangle ->setSize(20, 20, Unit::MILLIMETERS()) ->addImage($eps) ;
