Extra Values in TextFormat Return

Post by jimtell » Fri Jun 05 2015

Using latest version of PDF Creator ActiveX. When I get the font of some text using the TextFont attribute I'm getting seven values returned. I can only find documentation for 5 values. What are the other two. Value returned: Microsoft Sans Serif,10.0000,400,0,0,1,0 name,size,weight,italic,underline,?,?

Here is the reply from support on the same questions.

The two undocumented parameters of TextFont are, in this order:

5 - charset
6 - strikeout

The origin of charset is the Windows Font field "lfCharSet" whose documentation can be found in MSDN. Also strikeout can be found on same source. These are extensions to our font functions that are still not documented.
