$page->setSize(HaruPage::SIZE_A4HaruPage::LANDSCAPE); /* set the page to use A4 landscape format */

$courier $doc->getFont("Courier-Bold"); /* we'll use the bundled font a few lines below */

$page->setRGBStroke(000); /* set colors */
$page->rectangle(150150550250); /* draw a rectangle */

$page->fillStroke(); /* fill and stroke it */

$page->setDash(array(33), 0); /* set dash style for lines at this page */
$page->setFontAndSize($courier60); /* set font and size */

$page->setRGBStroke(; /* set line color */
$page->setRGBFill(111); /* set filling color */

$page->setTextRenderingMode(HaruPage::FILL_THEN_STROKE); /* fill and stroke text */

/* print the text */
$page->textOut(210270"Hello World!");

The Base14 fonts:

  • Courier

  • Courier-Bold

  • Courier-Oblique

  • Courier-BoldOblique

  • Helvetica

  • Helvetica-Bold
