Can a rectangle justify text?

04-30-2006, 07:50 PM
I am setting up a print layout. I am using rectangles to wrap the text. It works great. does not look real great. Is there a way to justify the text so it looks nice and square? I have been using this sort of setup:

Dim Rec1 as New rectangleF
Width = 100F
height = 100F
e.Graphics draw reactangle(text1......rec1)

Use a stringformat in the drawstring, and set its alignment property:

Dim x As Single = 100.0F
Dim y As Single = 100.0F
Dim Wid As Single = 100.0F
Dim Hei As Single = 100.0F
Dim Rec1 As New RectangleF(x, y, Wid, Hei)
Dim sf As StringFormat = StringFormat.GenericTypographic
sf.Alignment = StringAlignment.Far ' horizontal
sf.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Near ' vertical
e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.AntiqueWhite, Rec1.X, Rec1.Y, Rec1.Width, Rec1.Height)
e.Graphics.DrawString("test", Me.Font, Brushes.BurlyWood, Rec1, sf)
