SetWatermark position-values

Post by jameslast » Wed Dec 05 2007

Hello,

your manual (version 3) says the following for the function SetWatermark:
FontSize
[in] Font size in 0.1 inch units.
...
HorzPos
[in] Horizontal text position in 0.1 inch units. This a positive value measured from the left of the page and
should take into account the minimum printer margin.
VertPos
[in] Vertical text position in 0.1 inch units. This a negative value measured from the top of the page and
should take into account the minimum printer margin.

But I just don't get it.
How is the VertPos calculated? I have to set a value of -170 to set a text right below the top border of a page. This would be -17inch, but my page is A4 (11,68 inches height).

What I want to do is enable the user to enter "real" inch values to position the text. That means I get a value of 0,5inch, if I want to place the Watermark 0,5inch below the top of the page.
The same for the horizontal-value and the font-size value.

I really hope someone can explain that to me!

Thank you!
