in reply to Centering Text with GD::Image

You can get the bounds of the text box using the stringFT() method, but you will need to load up a truetype font first - see the "Character and String Drawing" section in the GD docs.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Will this not work with the built in fonts? I am using gdGiantFont.
      According to GD#Font-Utilities, gdGiantFont is a fixed width (monospace) 9x15 font, so unless I'm very much mistaken, it's just 9*nChars to get the width, and the height is a fixed 15 per line of text.

      edit and it's got the width and height methods to tell you those numbers in the code.
