CircularText – Draw a circle using specified text


function CircularText( $x, $y, $r, $text, $align= 'top|bottom', $fontfamily= '', $fontsize= 0, $fontstyle= '', $kerning= 120, $fontwidth = 100, $divider= '' )

Draw a circle using specified text. One or both of top-text and/or bottom-text must be defined. The radius and font-size are user-defined, whilst the width and height of the generated object will be calculated from these values.

From mPDF >= 5.6 the CSS property font-size can be set to auto. This automatically sizes text to fill a semicircle (if both top and bottom set) or a full circle (if only one set).

Circular Text is displayed as though an in-line element. Automatic kerning will be applied to the text if useKerning is true
