  • Method Details

    • layout

      public LayoutResult layout (LayoutContext layoutContext)
      Description copied from interface: IRenderer
      This method simulates positioning of the renderer, including all of its children, and returns the LayoutResult, representing the layout result, including occupied area, status, i.e. if there was enough place to fit the renderer subtree, etc. LayoutResult can be extended to return custom layout results for custom elements, e.g. TextRenderer uses TextLayoutResult as its result. This method can be called standalone to learn how much area the renderer subtree needs, or can be called before IRenderer.draw(DrawContext), to prepare the renderer to be flushed to the output stream.

      layout in interface IRenderer
      layoutContext - the description of layout area and any other additional information
      result of the layout process

    • charAt

      public int charAt (int pos)
      Gets char code at given position for the text belonging to this renderer.

    • getTabAnchorCharacterPosition

      public float getTabAnchorCharacterPosition()
    • getNextRenderer

      public IRenderer getNextRenderer()
      Gets a new instance of this class to be used as a next renderer, after this renderer is used, if layout(LayoutContext) is called more than once.

      If TextRenderer overflows to the next line, iText uses this method to create a renderer for the overflow part. So if one wants to extend TextRenderer, one should override this method: otherwise the default method will be used and thus the default rather than the custom renderer will be created. Another method that should be overridden in case of TextRenderer's extension is createCopy(GlyphLine, PdfFont). This method is responsible for creation of TextRenderer's copies, which represent its parts of specific font.

      Specified by:
      getNextRenderer in interface IRenderer
      new renderer instance
    • calculateAscenderDescender

    • calculateAscenderDescender

      public static float[] calculateAscenderDescender (PdfFont font, RenderingMode mode)

    • createCopy

      protected TextRenderer createCopy (GlyphLine gl, PdfFont font)
      Creates a copy of this TextRenderer, which corresponds to the passed GlyphLine with PdfFont.

      While processing TextRenderer, iText uses this method to create glyph lines of specific fonts, which represent the TextRenderer's parts. If one extends TextRenderer, one should override this method, otherwise if FontSelector related logic is triggered, copies of this TextRenderer will have the default behavior rather than the custom one.

      gl - a GlyphLine which represents some of this TextRenderer's content
      font - a PdfFont for this part of the TextRenderer's content
      copy of this TextRenderer, which correspond to the passed GlyphLine with PdfFont
