)

Parameters

Name Type Description
rect RectangleF

A RectangleF structure that intersects the current clip region of the PdfGraphics object (defined in world coordinate system).

Remarks

This method allows you to crop the clip region of the PdfGraphics object. Use the PdfGraphics methods (like GDI+) to draw the updated clip region. Refer to the following article for a list of supported drawing method: PDF Graphics API. Then, call the PdfGraphics.AddToPageForeground, PdfGraphics.AddToPageBackground, or PdfDocumentProcessor.RenderNewPage method to add the resulting graphics to a document page.

The code sample below sets the clip region of the PdfGraphics object to the intersection of the current clip region and the specified page region.

Crop the Page Content

using DevExpress.Pdf;
using System.Drawing;
//...

using (PdfDocumentProcessor processor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())
{
    processor.CreateEmptyDocument();
    PdfPage page = processor.AddNewPage(PdfPaperSize.A4);
        using (PdfGraphics graphics = processor.CreateGraphics())
        {
            graphics.SaveGraphicsState();

            // Specify the page region that intersects the clip region.
            Rectangle clipRect = new Rectangle(100, 100, 200, 200);

            // Set the clip region to the intersection of 
            // the current clip region with the specified rectangle. 
            graphics.IntersectClip(clipRect);

            // Draw the updated clip region.
            using (var brush = new SolidBrush(Color.Blue))
                graphics.FillRectangle(brush, new RectangleF(0, 0, 500, 500));
            graphics.RestoreGraphicsState();

            // Add graphics content to the target page.
            graphics.AddToPageForeground(page, 72, 72);
        }
    processor.SaveDocument("out2.pdf");
}
Process.Start("out.pdf");
