Here is the skeleton algorithm for outputting a chessboard:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?php
  3. // Chess board is 8x8
  4. // Every row and column the colors swap.
  6. $array = array('b', 'w');
  8. // Rows
  9. for ($y = 0; $y < 8; $y++) {
  10.     // Columns
  11.     for    ($x = 0; $x < 8; $x++) {
  12.         // print the first index of array
  13.         print $array[0];
  14.         // and then switch the array values.
  15.         $array = array_reverse($array);
  16.     }
  17.     print "\n";
  18.     $array = array_reverse($array);
  19. }

Yeh thx but how can i integrate this with my script.
I mean say i want to create an image of chess like pattern
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?
  2. header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
  3. $t_im = imagecreatetruecolor("50","50");
  4. $blue = imagecolorallocate($t_im,149,0,0);
  5. imagefilledrectangle($t_im,0,0,$t_wt,$t_ht,$blue);
  6. ?>
How can i apply your given algorithm in this code

Hi, Neo.

Please have a look at the following code - do your best to understand it and ask questions if you don't.


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <?php
  3. // Create image of set size - must be divisible by 8 
  4. // (8 columns / rows in a chess board)
  5. $img = imagecreatetruecolor(160, 160);
  7. // define the colors
  8. // these are in an array so we can conveniently and 
  9. // efficiently reverse them.
  10. $colors = array(
  11.     imagecolorallocate($img, 255, 0, 0), // Red
  12.     imagecolorallocate($img, 0, 0, 255)     // Blue
  13. );
  15. // 8 rows
  16. for ($y = 0; $y < 8; $y++) {
  17.     // 8 columns
  18.     for ($x = 0; $x < 8; $x++) {
  19.         // Fill in a rectangle on our main image
  20.         imagefilledrectangle(
  21.             // the image resource (line 5)
  22.             $img,
  23.             // The starting x co-ordinate
  24.             // If we are on loop 2 of the outter loop, $y would be 1.
  25.             // The following line would evaluate to (1 * 20) 20. Ergo, the 
  26.             // coord would be plotted at that position (from the top).
  27.             // The 20 here is our rectangle height (as is with all the following
  28.             // 20s)
  29.             ($y * 20),
  30.             // The starting y co-ordinate.
  31.             ($x * 20),
  32.             // This time we add 20 to our starting x coord to find our
  33.             // ending x coord.
  34.             ($y * 20) + 20,
  35.             // Etc.
  36.             ($x * 20) + 20,
  37.             // Pick the first color index.
  38.             $colors[0]
  39.         );
  40.         // Switch the colors to achieve alternating colors.
  41.         $colors = array_reverse($colors);
  42.     }
  43.     // Again switch the colors.
  44.     // Take this out to see why we do this.
  45.     $colors = array_reverse($colors);
  46. }
  48. header("content-type: image/png");
  50. imagepng($img);
  51. imagedestroy($img);

Thanks it works but i did a lit alteration in this code.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $t_im = imagecreatetruecolor($t_wt,$t_ht);
  2.         $t2_im = imagecreatetruecolor($t2_wt,$t2_ht);
  4.         $fekete = imagecolorallocate($t_im,255,115,114);
  5.         $feher = imagecolorallocate($t_im,226,227,228);
  7.         imagefill($t_im,0,0,$feher);
  8.         $max_x = ceil($t_wt / 10);
  9.         $max_y = ceil($t_ht / 10);
  10.         $x = 0;
  11.         $y = 0;
  12.         for($i = 1; $i <= $max_y; $i++){
  13.             if(($i%2) == 0){
  14.                 $x = 0;
  15.             }else{
  16.                 $x = 10;
  17.             }
  18.             for($j = 1; $j <= $max_x; $j++){
  19.                 imagefilledrectangle($t_im,$x,$y,($x+10),($y+10),$fekete);
  20.                 $x = $x + 20;
  21.             }
  22.             $y+=10;
  23.         }
Once again thanks a lot for this sir

When playing games, perhaps the most simple is tic-tac-toe. The game has two simple strategies, one is defensive and the other offensive.

You really can only employ either strategy when you get to make the first move, and your opponent will quickly learn what you are doing...
