Text and Component Object Model (COM) objects are clipped by the rectangle. The application does not need to set the clipping region.

Banding is the process by which a single page of output is generated using one or more separate rectangles, or bands. When all bands are placed on the page, a complete image results. This approach is often used by raster printers that do not have sufficient memory or ability to image a full page at one time. Banding devices include most dot matrix printers as well as some laser printers.
