Cooking With Web Services: PHP & GD - PHP, GD, and NuSOAP
(Page 3 of 5 )

PHP GD provides graphical functions for creating images at runtime. There is also another library set called JpGraph; however, in this article we will use the GD library.  Constructing graphs with GD is fairly simple and straightforward.  You need PHP 4.3.2 or higher to use GD. Run PHP.EXE m to ensure the GD module is loaded with your current PHP engine.  If GD is not installed this article provides a detailed installation guide. In this article we will use the following four functions of the GD library (you may find detailed descriptions of these functions from the PHP manual):

  • ImageCreate(),
  • ImageColorAllocate(),
  • ImageLine(),
  • ImageString()

You also need PHP NuSOAP to consume Web Services.  Download the necessary files (basically it is a single file NuSoap.php) and copy this file to the appropriate folder.
