# MultiCell()

void MultiCell( float $w, float$h, string $text [, mixed$border [, string align [, integerfill [, mixed $link [, string$directionality [, boolean encoded]]]]]]) Writes a block of text directly to the PDF document at the current position. Lines are wrapped at the margins. ## Description This method allows printing text with line breaks. They can be automatic (as soon as the text reaches the right border of the cell) or explicit (via the \n character). As many cells as necessary are output, one below the other. Text can be aligned, centered or justified. The cell block can be framed and the background painted. ## Parameters See the details for MultiCell() at the FPDF equivalent. Two additional parameters have been added:directionality

Set to 'rtl' if using RTL language (right-to-left)

Default: 'ltr'

$encoded When set to false (default), UTF-8 encoded text will be appropriately converted to the chosen output file format. It should only be set to true, when the input text has already been converted internally within the program. Default: false Original parameters as the FPDF equivalent:$w

Width of cells.

If 0, they extend up to the right margin of the page.

$h Height of cells.$text

String to print.

$border Indicates if borders must be drawn around the cell block. The value can be either a number: • 0: no border • 1: frame or a string containing some or all of the following characters (in any order): • 'L': left • 'T': top • 'R': right • 'B': bottom Default value: 0.$align

Sets the text alignment.

Possible values are:

• 'L': left alignment
• 'C': center
• 'R': right alignment
• 'J': justification (default value)
$fill Indicates if the cell background must be painted (true) or transparent (false). Default value: false.$link

URL or identifier as returned by FPDF’s AddLink().
