)

New text rendering mode.

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

Delphi
[copy to clipboard]
{ PDF object is supposed to be created }
PDF.SetColorFill(0, 0.4, 0.2, 0);
PDF.SetColorStroke(1, 0, 0, 0);
fnt := PDF.AddFont('Times', false, false, false, false, FontCharset.fcDefault);
PDF.UseFont(fnt, 36);

PDF.SetTextRenderingMode(trFillText);
PDF.ShowTextAt(20, 20, 'ABCdef');

PDF.SetTextRenderingMode(trmStrokeText);
PDF.ShowTextAt 20, 70, 'ABCdef');

PDF.SetTextRenderingMode(trmFillAndStroke);
PDF.ShowTextAt(20, 120, 'ABCdef');

PDF.SaveToFile('test.pdf', true);
C/C++
[copy to clipboard]
// PDF object is supposed to be created
PDF->SetColorFill(0f, 0.4f, 0.2f, 0f);
PDF->SetColorStroke(1f, 0f, 0f, 0f);
long fnt = PDF->AddFont("Times", false, false, false, false, FontCharset.fcDefault);
PDF->UseFont(fnt, 36);

PDF->SetTextRenderingMode(trFillText);
PDF->ShowTextAt(20, 20, "ABCdef");

PDF->SetTextRenderingMode(trmStrokeText);
PDF->ShowTextAt 20, 70, "ABCdef");

PDF->SetTextRenderingMode(trmFillAndStroke);
