Use DocumentBuilder to inserting a Break
within C# and VB.NET.


In this code example, we create a two-column text document. If you want to start a new line, column, or page, call DocumentBuilder.InsertSpecialCharacter. Pass to this method the type of the break you need to insert that is represented by the Break Type enumeration (SpecialCharacterType).
