writeYLabels - Write the matrix Y labels

This function allows you to write the Y labels of the matrix. All the drawing parameters are given trough a $Format array. To learn more about this please read the Format array guide.

Calling this function
Where :

Format is an array containing the drawing parameters of the chart.

Customisation array - Tune up your chart!

It is possible to customize the rendering by playing with this array. Providing a detailled configuration is not mandatory. You‘ll see below a representation of all the customization possible :

You can specify the color of the labels with R,G,B,Alpha.
You can specify the rotation of the labels with Angle.
You can specify a padding offset with Padding.
You can specify an array of labels captions with Labels.
If no captions are given you can specify the value where the labels will start numbering with CountOffset.

The labels can be positionned using the Position parameter :

LABEL_POSITION_LEFT to write them on top of the matrix.
LABEL_POSITION_RIGHT to write them at the bottom of the matrix.

Sample script

 /* pChart library inclusions */

 /* Create the pChart object */
 $myPicture = new pImage(400,220);

 /* Create a solid background */
 $Settings = array("R"=>50, "G"=>70, "B"=>0,"Dash"=>1, "DashR"=>30, "DashG"=>50, "DashB"=>0);

 /* Do a gradient overlay */
 $Settings = array("StartR"=>194, "StartG"=>131, "StartB"=>44, "EndR"=>43, "EndG"=>7, "EndB"=>58, "Alpha"=>50);

 /* Add a border to the picture */
 /* Write the picture title */ 
 $myPicture->drawText(10,13,"pSurface() :: 2D surface charts",array("R"=>255,"G"=>255,"B"=>255));


 /* Create the surface object */
 $mySurface = new pSurface($myPicture);

 /* Set the grid size */

 /* Write the axis labels */

 /* Draw the surface chart */
 $Palette = array(0=>array("R"=>0,"G"=>0,"B"=>0),

 $mySurface->writeYLabels(array("Labels"=>"1st Seq"));
 for($i=0; $i<=200; $i++) { $mySurface->addPoint($i,0,rand(0,3)); }

 $mySurface->writeYLabels(array("Labels"=>"2nd Seq"));
 for($i=0; $i<=200; $i++) { $mySurface->addPoint($i,0,rand(0,3)); }

 $mySurface->writeYLabels(array("Labels"=>"3rd Seq"));
 for($i=0; $i<=200; $i++) { $mySurface->addPoint($i,0,rand(0,3)); }

 /* Render the picture (choose the best way) */
