Only the image displayed when dSaveImageGIF is run will be saved in GIF format. To save this image, you can also use:
Versions 16 and later
WEBDEV - Browser code

Drawing in browser code

The image saved in memory can be directly assigned to an Image control. Depending on the browser used, the result may not be the expected one.
For example, with the current version of FireFox (available when this documentation was published), the images in GIF format are not displayed properly.
This operating mode may be improved during the next upgraded versions of this browser.

PHP

Drawing in PHP

In PHP, the drawing functions are based on the graphic library GD. This library is commonly used by the PHP hosting companies and therefore it is always enabled. The version of the GD library must be version 2.0.28 (or later). This library can be downloaded from the PHP site.
To enable (if necessary) this library locally, the following elements are required:
  • PHP installed.
  • the PHP.INI file found in the Windows directory must contain the following line: "extension=php_gd2.dll" (instead of ";extension=php_gd2.dll").
  • the php_gd2.dll file must exist in the directory of PHP extensions. This directory is defined in the PHP.INI file by the "extension_dir" variable.
