I want to emulate generating a “sticky note” in PDFs. My current system is a wordpress website with a custom plugin written in PHP that uses fpdf for PDF generation. I can generate a yellow rectangle with borders and text easily:
$pdf = new fpdf(); $pdf->AddPage(); $pdf->SetFont('Arial','B',16); $pdf->SetFillColor(255, 246, 108); $pdf->SetXY(0, 40); $pdf->ShadowCell($pdf->GetPageWidth(),50,'Hello World!', 1, 0, 'C', true); $pdf->Output();
Now the issue is generating a shadow around the box. I’ve gone through the fpdf API and examples, but didn’t see anything relevant that I could use. There is a text-shadow example, but that doesn’t work in my case.
