This method begins a text-related operations block and switches the PDF page to text mode.

Syntax

HRESULT PDFPAGE_BeginText ()
Return value
If successful, this method returns S_OK. If it fails, this method should return one of the error values.

Remarks

This method starts a logical text block and should be called before any text output operators. It is not actually necessary to use this method, since the page will call it automatically when needed.

Example

Switching to Text Mode and Back
