Anybody here use it?
It is included in Björn’s collection and the whole collection cheaper than than the MBS DynaPDF option alone… But of course it is a lot less capable, though it mostly meets my needs…
And if just Björn exposes a few more things from the underlying library I don’t see needing anything else when I need to create PDFs from scratch. (I wish it could merge PDF’s but I can live with out that)
So I am trying to understand some things about it better. Maybe someone here can answer a question for me (I seem o be having issue posting to Björn’s mailing list)
On the Font Class one can get the BoundingBox parameters as well as Font Ascent and Decent…
But I don’t understand the difference between BoundingBox.top and Ascent and BoundingBox.Bottom and Descent.
If I understand what I can find though google, the boundingBox.Top would be the ascent for the tallest glyph, while boundingBox.Bottom would be the lowest descender in the font… Is that right?
BUT as these methods are not measuring a specific string, why are not BoundingBox.Top and Accent the same, and the same for bottom and descent? I seem to be missing something here!
BTW in the debugger the bounding box top and bottom both have larger absolute magnitudes than Ascent and descent….
Also I have no idea what boundBox left and right are… but would like to know!
I’m trying to write some higher level layout methods on top of the plugin methods to make it more RAD for me, so I need to understand how to measure things.
