Parameters: This function doesn’t accept any parameter.

Return Value: This function returns an string value containing the text encoding.

Exceptions: This function throws ImagickException on error.

Program 1:




<?php
  
// Create a new ImagickDraw object
$draw = new ImagickDraw();
  
// Get the text encoding
$textEncoding = $draw->getTextEncoding();
echo $textEncoding;
?>


Output:

// Empty string which is the default value

Program 2:
