#cropbox=(dimensions = [0.0, 0.0, 612.0, 792.0]) ⇒ Object

accessor (setter) for the :CropBox element of the page

#dimensions_of(text, fonts, size = 1000) ⇒ Object

gets the dimentions (width and height) of the text, as it will be printed in the PDF.

text

the text to measure

font

a font name or an Array of font names. Font names should be registered fonts. The 14 standard fonts are pre regitered with the font library.

size

the size of the font (defaults to 1000 points).

#fit_text(text, font, length, height = 10000000) ⇒ Object

this method returns the size for which the text fits the requested metrices the size is type Float and is rather exact if the text cannot fit such a small place, returns zero (0). maximum font size possible is set to 100,000 - which should be big enough for anything

text

the text to fit

font

the font name. @see font

length

the length to fit

height

the height to fit (optional - normally length is the issue)

#fix_rotationObject

This method moves the Page property into the page's data stream, so that “what you see is what you get”.

This is usful in cases where there might be less control over the source PDF files, and the user assums that the PDF page's data is the same as the PDF's pages on screen display (Rotate rotates a page but leaves the data in the original orientation).

The method returns the page object, thus allowing method chaining (i.e. `page = 90; page.textbox('hello!').fix_rotation.textbox('hello!')`)

#orientation(force = nil, clockwise = true) ⇒ Object

get or set (by clockwise rotation) the page's orientation

accepts one optional parameter:

force

to get the orientation, pass nil. to set the orientatiom, set fource to either :portrait or :landscape. defaults to nil (get orientation).

clockwise

sets the rotation directions. defaults to true (clockwise rotation).

returns the current orientation (:portrait or :landscape) if used to get the orientation. otherwise, if used to set the orientation, returns the page object to allow method chaining.

  • Notice: a square page always returns the :portrait value and is ignored when trying to set the orientation.

#resize(new_size = nil, conserve_aspect_ratio = true) ⇒ Object

resizes the page relative to it's current viewport (either the cropbox or the mediabox), setting the new viewport to the requested size.

accepts:

new_size

an Array with four elements: [X0, Y0, X_max, Y_max]. For example, A4: `[0, 0, 595, 842]`. It is important that the first two numbers are 0 unless a special effect is attempted. If the first two numbers change, the final result might not be the size requested, but the nearest possible transformation (calling the method again will allow a better resizing).

conserve_aspect_ratio

whether to keep the current content in the same aspect ratio or to allow streaching. Defaults to true - so that although the content is resized, it might not fill the new size completely.

#textbox(text, properties = {}) ⇒ Object

This method adds a simple text box to the Page represented by the PDFWriter class. This function takes two values:

text

the text to potin the box.

properties

a Hash of box properties.

the symbols and values in the properties Hash could be any or all of the following:

x

the left position of the box.

y

width

the width/length of the box. negative values will be computed from edge of page. defaults to 0 (end of page).

height

the height of the box. negative values will be computed from edge of page. defaults to 0 (end of page).

text_align

#write_table(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Writes a table to the current page, removing(!) the written rows from the table_data Array.

since the table_data Array is updated, it is possible to call this method a few times, each time creating or moving to the next page, until table_data.empty? returns true.

accepts a Hash with any of the following keys as well as any of the PDFWriter#textbox options:

headers

an Array of strings with the headers (will be repeated every page).

table_data

as Array of Arrays, each containing a string for each column. the first row sets the number of columns. extra columns will be ignored.

font

a registered or standard font name (see PDFWriter). defaults to nil (:Helvetica).

header_font

a registered or standard font name for the headers (see PDFWriter). defaults to nil (the font for all the table rows).

max_font_size

the maximum font size. if the string doesn't fit, it will be resized. defaults to 14.

column_widths

an array of relative column widths ([1,2] will display only the first two columns, the second twice as big as the first). defaults to nil (even widths).

header_color

the header color. defaults to [0.8, 0.8, 0.8] (light gray).

main_color

main row color. defaults to nil (transparent / white).

alternate_color

alternate row color. defaults to [0.95, 0.95, 0.95] (very light gray).

font_color

font color. defaults to [0,0,0] (black).

border_color

border color. defaults to [0,0,0] (black).

border_width

border width in PDF units. defaults to 1.

header_align

the header text alignment within each column (:right, :left, :center). defaults to :center.

row_align

the row text alignment within each column. defaults to :left (:right for RTL table).

direction

the table's writing direction (:ltr or :rtl). this reffers to the direction of the columns and doesn't effect text (rtl text is automatically recognized). defaults to :ltr.

max_rows

the maximum number of rows to actually draw, INCLUDING the header row. deafults to 25.

xy

an Array specifying the top-left corner of the table. defaulte to [page_width*0.1, page_height*0.9].

size

an Array specifying the height and the width of the table. defaulte to [page_width*0.8, page_height*0.8].
