GdImageStringFTCircle() need help!
I'm sorry if this has already been posted or I am breaking forum rules posting this but the website wouldn't let me search the forum... :mad:
I am using C to program a roulette wheel for my coursework project and I need the numbers to follow the wheel in a circle while being rotated. I figured this function: gdImageStringFTCircle
would be perfect however I cannot get it to work at all, not even an error message appears just nothing displays. I really need professional help, I am new to C and don't understand why it doesn't work. My lecturer rather than helping me just asks why me why it's not working... :mad:
So please anyone out there that can help me make this function work then it would be amazing. Sorry for breaking any rules once again. I will paste a segment of my current program to fault find etc.

You mean this one?
My first suggestion would be for you to copy/paste the example code on that website to verify that it works.
Then I would suggest you substitute your known parameters (from your current code) one at a time until you see it break.
Then you'll know what to fix in your code.

I've tried that...
The code on that link is wrong, the function has a typo in it and the code is requesting a file which I do not have to be compared.
I have scanned google for lots of solutions and found none. :( Thank you for the reply.

> the function has a typo in it
If you can't manage to fix a typo, you shouldn't be programming.
You seem to at least know there is a typo, so what's the difficulty?
> and the code is requesting a file which I do not have to be compared.
They're just image files, surely you can rummage up a couple of image files from somewhere.
Surely you can Photoshop / GIMP / paint your way to some test file you can use.

Fixing the typos and without having to deal with the images etc surely the function should just work on it's?
