Change this to a function?

P: 133

I want to convert this into a function. How would i go about doing this?

[PHP]$path_thumbs = "images/thumbs";
$path_big = "images/big";

//the new width of the resized image.
$img_thumb_width = 150; // in pixcel

$extlimit = "yes"; //Do you want to limit the extensions of files uploaded (yes/no)
//allowed Extensions
$limitedext = array(".gif",".jpg",".png",".jpeg",".bmp");

//check if folders are Writable or not
//please CHOMD them 777
if (!is_writeable($path_thumbs)){
die ("Error: The directory <b>($path_thumbs)</b> is NOT writable");
if (!is_writeable($path_big)){
die ("Error: The directory <b>($path_big)</b> is NOT writable");

//if the for has submittedd
if ($_POST){

$file_type = $_FILES['image']['type'];
$file_name = $_FILES['image']['name'];
$file_size = $_FILES['image']['size'];
$file_tmp = $_FILES['image']['tmp_name'];

//check if you have selected a file.
echo "Error: Please select a file to upload!. <br>--<a href=\"$_SERVER[PHP_SELF]\">back</a>";
exit(); //exit the script and don't do anything else.
//check file extension
$ext = strrchr($file_name,'.');
$ext = strtolower($ext);
if (($extlimit == "yes") && (!in_array($ext,$limitedext))) {
echo "Wrong file extension. <br>--<a href=\"$_SERVER[PHP_SELF]\">back</a>";
//get the file extension.
$getExt = explode ('.', $file_name);
$file_ext = $getExt[count($getExt)-1];

//create a random file name
$rand_name = md5(time());
$rand_name= rand(0,999999999);
//get the new width variable.
$ThumbWidth = $img_thumb_width;

//keep image type
if($file_type == "image/pjpeg" || $file_type == "image/jpeg"){
$new_img = imagecreatefromjpeg($file_tmp);
}elseif($file_type == "image/x-png" || $file_type == "image/png"){
$new_img = imagecreatefrompng($file_tmp);
}elseif($file_type == "image/gif"){
$new_img = imagecreatefromgif($file_tmp);
//list width and height and keep height ratio.
list($width, $height) = getimagesize($file_tmp);
if ($imgratio>1){
$newwidth = $ThumbWidth;
$newheight = $ThumbWidth/$imgratio;
$newheight = $ThumbWidth;
$newwidth = $ThumbWidth*$imgratio;
//function for resize image.
if (function_exists(imagecreatetruecolor)){
$resized_img = imagecreatetruecolor($newwidth,$newheight);
die("Error: Please make sure you have GD library ver 2+");
imagecopyresized($resized_img, $new_img, 0, 0, 0, 0, $newwidth, $newheight, $width, $height);
//save image
ImageJpeg ($resized_img,"$path_thumbs/$rand_name.$file_ext");
ImageDestroy ($resized_img);
ImageDestroy ($new_img);
//print message

//upload the big image
move_uploaded_file ($file_tmp, "$path_big/$rand_name.$file_ext");

$imagename = "$rand_name.$file_ext";[/PHP]

I would create a class then add the code as a function on that class. Then simply instantiate the class and reference call the function on the object:
class myObject
// property list
var $porperty1 ;
var $property2 ;
public function myObject($pPara1, $pPara2)
$this->property1 = $pPara1 ;
$this->property2 = $pPara2 ;
function function1()
// your code goes here

Then in the calling code:
function __autoload($pcClassName)
require_once '../lib/' . $pcClassName . '.php' ;
session_start() ;
$loObject = new myObject("value1", "value2") ; // the file name used must be myObject in this case

$loObject->function1() ;
If the function returns anything then the call should be $lvReturn = $this->fuction1();

I know this is only psuedo code but it should help.


PS a google search on PHP Object, or PHP functions should help too.

Why so negative about your own ability? Anyone can achieve anything they really set their mind to. Nine months ago I had never developed a web site, and now 'm using PHP classes and building full web systems. You can do this!

I've pretty much done this for you already. Take the code sample I gave you, save the class definition to a php file with the same name as the class - this is case sensitive.
Then where you want to use this class load the other lines I gave you.

It's that easy and I've already done more than most - this is a help forum not a have my code written for me forum.

Have a go at it and post back with specific problems when/if you get stuck - I'm happy to help.
