Greetings experts,

A while back I posted a question which was kindly answered by Roonaan:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/PHP/Q_21553032.html

The code looks like this:

<?php
$title = "This is some text";
$imageLocation = "images/characters/";

$letters = array("A",  "B",  "C",  "D",  "E",  "F",  "G",  "H",  "I",  "J",  "K",  "L",  "M",  "N",  "O",  "P",  "Q",  "R",  "S",  "T",  "U",  "V",  "W",  "X",  "Y",  "Z",  "a",  "b",  "c",  "d",  "e",  "f",  "g",  "h",  "i",  "j",  "k",  "l",  "m",  "n",  "o",  "p",  "q",  "r",  "s",  "t",  "u",  "v",  "w",  "x",  "y",  "z",  "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "0", "&",   "@",      ":",     ",",    "!",           "#",    "\"",            "-",     ".",      "+",    "£",     "?",        ";",          "'");
$images  = array("ca", "cb", "cc", "cd", "ce", "cf", "cg", "ch", "ci", "cj", "ck", "cl", "cm", "cn", "co", "cp", "cq", "cr", "cs", "ct", "cu", "cv", "cw", "cx", "cy", "cz", "la", "lb", "lc", "ld", "le", "lf", "lg", "lh", "li", "lj", "lk", "ll", "lm", "ln", "lo", "lp", "lq", "lr", "ls", "lt", "lu", "lv", "lw", "lx", "ly", "lz", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "0", "and", "atsign", "colon", "coma", "exclamation", "hash", "inverted-coma", "minus", "period", "plus", "pound", "question", "semi-colon", "semi-inverted-coma");

if(!function_exists('array_combine')) {
  function array_combine($keys, $values) {
    if(count($keys) != count($values)) return false;
    $result = array();
    foreach($keys as $index => $value)
      $result[$value] = $values[$index];
    return $result;
  }
}


function imageText($title, $letters, $images, $imageLocation) {
 
  $letterImages = array_combine($letters, $images);
 
  $new_title = '';
 
  for($i = 0, $s = strlen($title); $i < $s; $i++)
  {
    if(isset($letterImages[$title[$i]]))
      $new_title .= '<img src="'.$imageLocation.$letterImages[$title[$i]].'.gif" />';
    else
      $new_title .= $title[$i];
  }

  return $new_title;
}

echo imageText($title, $letters, $images, $imageLocation);

?>

This function works perfectly if I have 1 line of text.  However, the scope of the requirement has changed for a different project and what I now require is for the function to be intellegent enough to wrap the line to a predefined number of characters (taking whole words into consideration) and then force the images to start a new line.  For example, if I have a text string of "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog watching the slinky cat basking in the sun on a mat" would look great as a one liner.  However, if I had a table which was restricted to 60 chars worth of images, the line would look like:

the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog watching the sli
nky cat basking in the sun on a mat

What I would like the function to do if possible is to take into consideration that slinky would be chopped in half, so perhaps by using div tags it would look like:

<div>the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog watching the</div>
<div>slinky cat basking in the sun on a mat</div>

And so on for each line that it comes across.  Of course, I had thought of doing a "line wrap" before running the function by actually putting <div></div> where necessary, but the function breaks as it wouldn't be able to find the characters < or > and it will interpret the characters div as images.  

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to post.

Thanks for your help.

Ingwa.

How about this:

<?php
$title = "This is some text";
$imageLocation = "images/characters/";

$letters = array("A",  "B",  "C",  "D",  "E",  "F",  "G",  "H",  "I",  "J",  "K",  "L",  "M",  "N",  "O",  "P",  "Q",  "R",  "S",  "T",  "U",  "V",  "W",  "X",  "Y",  "Z",  "a",  "b",  "c",  "d",  "e",  "f",  "g",  "h",  "i",  "j",  "k",  "l",  "m",  "n",  "o",  "p",  "q",  "r",  "s",  "t",  "u",  "v",  "w",  "x",  "y",  "z",  "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "0", "&",   "@",      ":",     ",",    "!",           "#",    "\"",            "-",     ".",      "+",    "£",     "?",        ";",          "'");

$widths = array( /* here you list the individual widths (in pixels) of the images used

                  $new_title = substr( $new_title, $prev_blank_char+1 );
                  $line_width -= ($prev_blank+$guessed_char_width);

  $new_title = implode( "<br />", $titlearray );  // turn it into one long multiline string

  return $new_title;
}
?>

Note that you need to fill in values in the width array. I have no clue about the size of your images :-))

Jakob, I can see the logic in your answer.  Thank you for taking the time to provide all the useful comments too.  I will be testing this code as soon as I get to the office tomorrow and will report on my findings.  It looks like some great scripting, hope you don't mind the wait :)

Hi Jakob, I've had a bash at your code in a test file and it looks like this:

<?php
$title = "This is some text that should span many lines and retain the width of the lines";
$imageLocation = "images/characters/";

$letters = array("A",  "B",  "C",  "D",  "E",  "F",  "G",  "H",  "I",  "J",  "K",  "L",  "M",  "N",  "O",  "P",  "Q",  "R",  "S",  "T",  "U",  "V",  "W",  "X",  "Y",  "Z",  "a",  "b",  "c",  "d",  "e",  "f",  "g",  "h",  "i",  "j",  "k",  "l",  "m",  "n",  "o",  "p",  "q",  "r",  "s",  "t",  "u",  "v",  "w",  "x",  "y",  "z",  "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "0", "&",   "@",      ":",     ",",    "!",           "#",    "\"",            "-",     ".",      "+",    "£",     "?",        ";",          "'", "%", "/");

?>

When I ran the script it said "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ARRAY, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or '$' in /wwwroot/bondfitness/htdocs/test.php on line 50".  I've marked line 50 for you.  So I changed the line to read:

$titlearray = array();

And then got an error: "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in /wwwroot/bondfitness/htdocs/test.php on line 62"

Unfortunately, there appear to be some if statements that don't have { or } but I wasn't 100% sure of the logic as to where they should be specifically terminated.

ed987, I would also like to thank you for your code contribution.  Looking at your code, it appears that it seperates each "word" with a span class.  Logic looks great.  I am in the process of testing your code and will report back to you as soon as I am done.  Many thanks again.

My bad. the 'new' is for creating a Java array. in php it is just
$titlearray = array();                                         //ADDED array       // Line 50 Gives error

And yes, the brackets inside the for loop are screved up. it should be:

  for($i = 0, $s = strlen($title); $i < $s; $i++)
  {
    if(isset($letterImages[$title[$i]])) {                                                             // added start and end bracket (ending at else)
      $new_title .= '<img src="'.$imageLocation.$letterImages[$title[$i]].'.gif" />';
      $line_width += $letterWidths[$title[$i]];      
    } else {                                                                                                   // added start bracket for else-part
      if( $title[$i] === ' ' ) {
          // if $line_width is currently greater than the maximum a linechange should
          // be inserted at the previous blank.
          if ( $line_width > $maxLinewidthInPixels ) {
              if ( $prev_blank == 0 ) {
                  // too bad, a single word is wider than the allocated width.
                  // nothing we can do about it, so just hope it dont look too bad.
              } else {
                  $titlearray[] = substr( $new_title, 0, $prev_blank_char );
                  $new_title = substr( $new_title, $prev_blank_char+1 );
                  $line_width -= ($prev_blank+$guessed_char_width);        
              }
           }
           $prev_blank = $line_width;
           $prev_blank_char = strlen($new_title);
       }                                                           //ends     if( $title[$i] === ' ' )
       $new_title .= $title[$i];
       $line_width += $guessed_char_width;
    }                                                             //ends else-part of    if(isset($letterImages[$title[$i]]))
  }                                                               //ADDED }.  ends for loop

Hi Jakob, I've put your code in and it now looks like this:

<?php
$title = "This is some text that should span many lines and retain the width of the lines";
$imageLocation = "images/characters/";

<?php echo imageText($title, $letters, $images, $imageLocation, 200); ?>

It is now displaying the images without any errors, however there's no <br />'s being inserted into the page.  Not sure why, but thought you should know.

Oh Wait!  My bad.  Sorry.  The script does work, I changed 200 to 100 and it gave me a line break.  Thanks very much for fixing the script.
