Hello! I am trying to draw a rectangle with text in it. Due to the fact that currently it is not possible to draw a rectangle that spans to the next page, i should check if there is enough space in the current page. the problem is, i didn''t find a way to get the required height of the rectangle before i draw the text. this is the code i tried: float docLine = 750; string msg="Draw text that wraps for multi line"; RectangleF LineRect=new RectangleF(new PointF(20,docLine),new SizeF(70,15)); RectangleF DrawRect=new RectangleF(new PointF(20,docLine),new SizeF(70,15)); string strRemaining=doc.Graphics.DrawMultiText(LineRect,msg,font,props); while(strRemaining != "") { LineRect.Y+=LineRect.Height; strRemaining=doc.Graphics.DrawMultiText(LineRect,strRemaining,font,props); } DrawRect.Height += (LineRect.Y-DrawRect.Y); doc.Graphics.DrawRectangle(DrawRect); if i try the value 600 for docLine, than the code works fine. Is there a way to find out how many times the while loop will run without using the DrawMultiText method? Thanks Liat

Hi Liat, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Here is some code for setting borders arround the text. IPDFGraphicState props = doc.CreateGraphicState(); props.BorderSize.All = 3; props.BorderColors.All = Color.Green; and here is the pdf file generated using the above code: http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/Sample_40af4f0d.pdf However this fix will be available only on the next service pack and I will provide you an update regarding this as soon as it is available. Also can you create a Direct Trac support incident for this and so that we can work with you to get an intermediate build to you. Regards, Ajish.
