How to Add Rectangle or Line Object to An Existing PDF File using .NET


 / Published in: C#
 

URL: http://www.aspose.com/.net/pdf-component.aspx

This technical tip shows how .NET developers can add line object to an Existing PDF File inside their .NET applications. Aspose.Pdf for .NET supports the feature to add graph objects (for example graph, line, rectangle etc.) to PDF documents. You also get the leverage to add Line object where you can also specify the dash pattern, color and other formatting for Line element. The legacy Aspose.Pdf.Generator provides the feature to set DashLengthInBlack and DashLengthInWhite properties where dash pattern for line object can be defined. Similar features can be accomplished while using DOM approach.

  5. // Create Document instance
  6. Document doc = new Document();
  7. // Add page to pages collection of PDF file
  8. Page page = doc.Pages.Add();
  9. // Create Graph instance
  10. Aspose.Pdf.Drawing.Graph graph = new Aspose.Pdf.Drawing.Graph(100, 400);
  11. // Add graph object to paragraphs collection of page instance
  12. page.Paragraphs.Add(graph);
  13. // Create Rectangle instance
  14. Aspose.Pdf.Drawing.Line line = new Aspose.Pdf.Drawing.Line(new float[]{100, 100, 200, 100});
  15. // Specify fill color for Graph object
  16. line.GraphInfo.DashArray = new int[] { 0, 1, 0 };
  17. line.GraphInfo.DashPhase = 1;
  18. // Add rectangle object to shapes collection of Graph object
  19. graph.Shapes.Add(line);
  20. // Save PDF file
  21. doc.Save("c:/pdftest/LineAdded.pdf");
