Examples

The following example shows how to use the MinWidth property to generate the minimum paragraph width for the formatted lines of text.

MinMaxParagraphWidth minMaxParaWidth =
    formatter.FormatMinMaxParagraphWidth(customTextSource, 0, customTextParagraphProperties);

// Format each line of text from the text store and draw it.
while (textStorePosition < customTextSource.Text.Length)
{
    // Create a textline from the text store using the TextFormatter object.
    using (TextLine myTextLine = formatter.FormatLine(
        customTextSource,
        textStorePosition,
        minMaxParaWidth.MinWidth,
        customTextParagraphProperties,
        null))
    {
        // Draw the formatted text into the drawing context.
        myTextLine.Draw(drawingContext, linePosition, InvertAxes.None);

        // Update the index position in the text store.
        textStorePosition += myTextLine.Length;

        // Update the line position coordinate for the displayed line.
        linePosition.Y += myTextLine.Height;
    }
}
Dim minMaxParaWidth As MinMaxParagraphWidth = formatter.FormatMinMaxParagraphWidth(customTextSource, 0, customTextParagraphProperties)

' Format each line of text from the text store and draw it.
Do While textStorePosition < customTextSource.Text.Length
	' Create a textline from the text store using the TextFormatter object.
	Using myTextLine As TextLine = formatter.FormatLine(customTextSource, textStorePosition, minMaxParaWidth.MinWidth, customTextParagraphProperties, Nothing)
		' Draw the formatted text into the drawing context.
		myTextLine.Draw(drawingContext, linePosition, InvertAxes.None)

		' Update the index position in the text store.
		textStorePosition += myTextLine.Length

		' Update the line position coordinate for the displayed line.
		linePosition.Y += myTextLine.Height
	End Using
Loop

Remarks

The minimum paragraph width corresponds to the word that has the greatest width in the text content.
