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


To insert text into a document, simply pass a string of text to the DocumentBuilder.Write method.

Before inserting a line of text, set different font attributes (font name, font size, font color, and so on). This character formatting will apply to all text inserted starting from the current position in the document.
