Edit this page


The Section class allows you to separate the content into sections. Sections are chunks of the document that can be displayed on one or several pages. Currently only one section in the document is supported and all declared sections are merged into one when the document is measured.

A Section can contain only Paragraph and Table elements. You are also able to customize the section layout by setting its properties.

In order to add paragraphs you have to use the Paragraphs collection of the Section.

Section section = new Section();
Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph();

Dim section As New Section()
Dim paragraph As New Paragraph()
