namespace DocumentCreationAPI
{
    class Program {

        static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            using (PdfDocumentProcessor processor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())
            {

                // Create an empty document.
                processor.CreateEmptyDocument("..\\..\\Result.pdf");

                // Create and draw PDF graphics.
                using (PdfGraphics graph = processor.CreateGraphics())
                {
                    DrawGraphics(graph);

                    // Render a page with graphics.
                    processor.RenderNewPage(PdfPaperSize.Letter, graph);
                }
            }
        }

        static void DrawGraphics(PdfGraphics graph)
        {

            // Draw text lines on the page.
            SolidBrush black = (SolidBrush)Brushes.Black;
            using (Font font1 = new Font("Times New Roman", 32, FontStyle.Bold))
            {
                graph.DrawString("PDF Document Processor", font1, black, 180, 150);
