Retrieve width and height attributes using given width and height values.

Syntax Syntax

image_hwstring( int|string $width, int|string $height )

Description Description

Both attributes are required in the sense that both parameters must have a value, but are optional in that if you set them to false or null, then they will not be added to the returned string.

You can set the value using a string, but it will only take numeric values. If you wish to put ‘px’ after the numbers, then it will be stripped out of the return.

Parameters Parameters


(Required) Image width in pixels.


(Required) Image height in pixels.

Return Return

(string) HTML attributes for width and, or height.
