    VisualBrick visBrick;
    BrickGraphics brickGraph = printingSystem1.Graph;
    string s = "Developer Express Inc.";

    // Specify the string format.
    StringFormat sFormat = new StringFormat(StringFormatFlags.DirectionVertical);
    sFormat.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
    sFormat.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center;

    // Create the BrickStringFormat object.
    BrickStringFormat brickSFormat = new BrickStringFormat(sFormat);

    // Measure the string according to the specified format
    SizeF sz = brickGraph.MeasureString(s, 30, sFormat);

    // Start the report generation.
    printingSystem1.Begin();

    // Set the brick string format
    brickGraph.StringFormat = brickSFormat;

    // Create a rectangle.
    RectangleF rect = new RectangleF(new PointF(0, 0), new SizeF(30, 150));
    // Specify a page area.
    brickGraph.Modifier = BrickModifier.Detail;
    // Add a brick to the report.
    visBrick = brickGraph.DrawString(s, Color.MidnightBlue, rect, BorderSide.All);

    // Finish the report generation.
    printingSystem1.End();

    // Preview the report.
