    SetRectCoordinatesOnDocumentInches Method (GdViewer)
    In This Topic
    Determines the rectangle of area selection refering to the document pages area. This method sets the specified coordinates and dimensions, in inches, to identify the rectangle of selection related to the document displayed in the GdViewer control. The specified rectangle is immediately drawn on the displayed page using the predefined parameters. Please ensure, that all given values correspond to the actual document pages area.

    Be aware that the rectangle of selection always relates to the displayed document. On the other hand, you can specify the border size of this rectangle using the RectBorderSize property and the border color of this rectangle using the RectBorderColor property to be applied permanently.

    Parameters

    Left
    The horizontal (X) coordinate (0-based) of the top left point, in inches, of the rectangle of selection, related to the current page.
    Top
    The vertical (Y) coordinate (0-based) of the top left point, in inches, of the rectangle of selection, related to the current page.
    Width
    The width, in inches, of the rectangle of selection.
    Height
    The height, in inches, of the rectangle of selection.
    Remarks
    Be aware that you are allowed to define only one rectangle of selection within the GdViewer control. Likewise, the rectangle of selection always relates to the currently displayed document, meaning that without displaying some document you cannot specify the new rectangle of selection.

    Just to remind you, that all coordinates are 0-based with the origin being in the top left corner in the document pages area and they are related to the current page determined by the CurrentPage property.

    Example
    How to define the rectangle of selection on the displayed document.
    'We assume that the GdViewer1 control has been properly integrated
    'and your document has been properly displayed as well.
                
    'Setting some custom properties for the rectangle of selection.
    GdViewer1.RectBorderColor = GdViewer1.ARGB(255, 69, 0)
    GdViewer1.RectBorderSize = 2
                
    If GdViewer1.SelectAllText() = GdPictureStatus.OK Then
        Dim regions As RectangleF() = GdViewer1.GetSelectedTextRegions()
        If (GdViewer1.GetStat() = GdPictureStatus.OK) AndAlso (regions.Count() > 0) Then
            'The first region surely exists.
            Dim rect As RectangleF = regions.ElementAt(0)
            GdViewer1.SetRectCoordinatesOnDocumentInches(rect.Left, rect.Top, rect.Width, rect.Height)
            GdViewer1.CenterOnRect()
        Else
            MessageBox.Show("The text region can't be found. Status: " + GdViewer1.GetStat().ToString(), "GdViewer.SetRectCoordinatesOnDocumentInches")
