Syntax:

GmagickDraw GmagickDraw::settextencoding( string $encoding )

Parameters:This function accepts a single parameter $encoding which holds the encoding.

Return Value: This function returns GmagickDraw object on success.

Exceptions: This function throws GmagickDrawException on error.

<?php
// Create a GmagickDraw object
$draw = new GmagickDraw();
  
// Set the encoding
$draw->settextencoding('utf-32');
  
// Get the encoding
$encoding = $draw->gettextencoding();
echo $encoding;
?>
