Hi, I am new user to SyncFusion. I am trying to understand how to determine where the next content should be placed. For example I have some text and use the Graphics.DrawString to write it out. then i need to put a table in after the text. My question is how do I get where the text ended so that I can use those coordinates to start my table at.

Hi Neelima,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products,

We can get the bounds of the drawn text as follow.

  PdfFont font = new PdfTrueTypeFont(new Font("arial", 12));
  PdfTextElement element = new PdfTextElement("Hi Hellow World", font);

   // Set the properties for the text element.
   element.Brush = new PdfSolidBrush(Color.Black);

   // Set the layout format properties to make the text flow through multiple pages.
   PdfLayoutFormat layoutFormat = new PdfLayoutFormat();
   layoutFormat.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;
   layoutFormat.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;

  // Set the bounds.
  RectangleF bounds = new RectangleF(PointF.Empty, page.Graphics.ClientSize);

   // Draw the text element.
  PdfTextLayoutResult result= element.Draw(page, bounds, layoutFormat)

 Here "result" gives the bounds of the text.

 Please follow the below link for more information about the PdfTextElement.

Please let us know if you have any concern,

With Regards,
