I want to insert a horizontal rule in google docs using PHP. I have also followed and gone through this link https://developers.google.com/apps-script/reference/document/paragraph#inserthorizontalrulechildindex but I am unable to create a horizontal line.
I am trying to send the request with this next approach:


 $requests = [
new Google_Service_Docs_Request([
'insertHorizontalRule' => [
'location' => [
'index' => 1,
],
]
]),
];

$batchUpdateRequest = new Google_Service_Docs_BatchUpdateDocumentRequest(array(
'requests' => $requests
));

$response = $service->documents->batchUpdate($documentId, $batchUpdateRequest);

Can anybody tell me what am I missing or what mistake I am making.


getting this error -


PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Google\Service\Exception: {
"error": {
"code": 400,
"message": "Invalid JSON payload received. Unknown name \"insertHorizontalRule\" at 'requests[0]': Cannot find field.\nInvalid JSON payload received. Unknown name \"fields\" at 'requests[0]': Cannot find field.",
"errors": [

"message": "Invalid JSON payload received. Unknown name \"insertHorizontalRule\" at 'requests[0]': Cannot find field.\nInvalid JSON payload received. Unknown name \"fields\" at 'requests[0]': Cannot find field.",
"reason": "invalid"
}
],

My Answer:
To insert a horizontal rule in a Google Docs document using the Google Docs API with PHP, you can use the following code snippet:

php

require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

putenv('GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=/path/to/credentials.json');

$client = new Google_Client();
$client->useApplicationDefaultCredentials();
$client->addScope(Google_Service_Docs::DOCUMENTS);

$service = new Google_Service_Docs($client);

$documentId = 'YOUR_DOCUMENT_ID';

$requests = [
new Google_Service_Docs_Request([
'insertHorizontalRule' => [
'location' => [
'index' => 1, // Index where you want to insert the horizontal rule
],
],
]),
];

$batchUpdateRequest = new Google_Service_Docs_BatchUpdateDocumentRequest([
'requests' => $requests,
]);

$response = $service->documents->batchUpdate($documentId, $batchUpdateRequest);

echo 'Horizontal rule inserted successfully.';


Make sure to replace `'YOUR_DOCUMENT_ID'` with the actual document ID where you want to insert the horizontal rule. You also need to have the Google API client library installed in your project.

This code snippet sends a batch update request to insert a horizontal rule at the specified index in the document. The horizontal rule will be inserted at the beginning of the document in this example. You can adjust the index value to insert the horizontal rule at a different location in the document.

Please note that you need to have the necessary permissions and authentication set up to access and modify the Google Docs document using the API.
