Retrieving dimensions from a text and generally element positioning

Sep 29, 2010 at 7:45 AM


first of all thanks to the developers, for creating this library!

So I'll go on with my questions:

Is it somehow possible to retrieve the dimensions or twips from a TextElement? This would give me the information, f.e. if the complete TextElement would fit into the current page or if i should place it on the next page.

Another problem is the positioning of elements in the document. I cannot position an Image right/left to a text. A workaround would be to use tables, is there any other method for positioning the elements or creating a text circumfluent?
