'' Shows how to use GcPdfGraphics.Transform to rotate a text string
'' (alternative way using matrix multiplication).
Public Class RotatedText2
Function CreatePDF(ByVal stream As Stream) As Integer
'' Rotation angle, degrees clockwise:
Dim angle = -45.0F
''
Dim doc = New GcPdfDocument()
Dim g = doc.NewPage().Graphics
'' Create a text layout, pick a font and font size:
Dim tl = g.CreateTextLayout()
tl.DefaultFormat.Font = StandardFonts.Times
tl.DefaultFormat.FontSize = 24
'' Add a text, and perform layout:
tl.Append("Rotated text.")
tl.PerformLayout(True)
'' Text insertion point at (1",1"):
Dim ip = New PointF(72, 72)
'' Now that we have text size, create text rectangle with top left at insertion point:
Dim rect = New RectangleF(ip.X, ip.Y, tl.ContentWidth, tl.ContentHeight)
'' Rotation center point in the middel of text bounding rectangle:
Dim center = New PointF(ip.X + tl.ContentWidth / 2, ip.Y + tl.ContentHeight / 2)
'' Transformations can be combined by multiplying matrices.
'' Note that matrix multiplication is not commutative -
'' the sequence of operands is important, and is applied from last to first
'' matrices being multiplied:
'' 3) Translate the origin back to (0,0):
'' 2) Rotate around new origin by the specified angle:
'' 1) Translate the origin from default (0,0) to rotation center:
g.Transform =
Matrix3x2.CreateTranslation(-center.X, -center.Y) *
Matrix3x2.CreateRotation((angle * Math.PI) / 180.0F) *
Matrix3x2.CreateTranslation(center.X, center.Y)
'' Draw rotated text and bounding rectangle:
g.DrawTextLayout(tl, ip)
g.DrawRectangle(rect, Color.Black, 1)
'' Remove transformation and draw the bounding rectangle where the non-rotated text would have been:
g.Transform = Matrix3x2.Identity
g.DrawRectangle(rect, Color.ForestGreen, 1)
''
'' Done:
doc.Save(stream)
Return doc.Pages.Count
End Function
End Class
