Examples

Shows to create a variety of shapes.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Below are four examples of shapes that we can insert into our documents.
// 1 -  Dotted, horizontal, half-transparent red line
// with an arrow on the left end and a diamond on the right end:
Shape arrow = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.Line);
arrow.Width = 200;
arrow.Stroke.Color = Color.Red;
arrow.Stroke.StartArrowType = ArrowType.Arrow;
arrow.Stroke.StartArrowLength = ArrowLength.Long;
arrow.Stroke.StartArrowWidth = ArrowWidth.Wide;
arrow.Stroke.EndArrowType = ArrowType.Diamond;
arrow.Stroke.EndArrowLength = ArrowLength.Long;
arrow.Stroke.EndArrowWidth = ArrowWidth.Wide;
arrow.Stroke.DashStyle = DashStyle.Dash;
arrow.Stroke.Opacity = 0.5;

builder.InsertNode(arrow);

// 2 -  Thick black diagonal line with rounded ends:
Shape line = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.Line);
line.Top = 40;
line.Width = 200;
line.Height = 20;
line.StrokeWeight = 5.0;

// 3 -  Arrow with a green fill:

filledInArrow.Width = 200;
filledInArrow.Height = 40;
filledInArrow.Top = 100;
filledInArrow.Fill.ForeColor = Color.Green;

// 4 -  Arrow with a flipped orientation filled in with the Aspose logo:

filledInArrowImg.Width = 200;
filledInArrowImg.Height = 40;

    // Flip the image the other way to cancel this out before getting the shape to display it.
