Hi, I am wanting to determine if all of a long string content that I am loading into a fixed size rect object will be visible.

'I have this sub
Sub PDFAddHTML(ByVal sHTML As String, ByVal oPos As Position)
        oDoc.TopDown = True
        oDoc.Rect.String = oPos.Left & " " & oPos.Top + oPos.Height & " " & oPos.Left + oPos.Width & " " & oPos.Top
        oDoc.AddHtml(sHTML)
End Sub
 
'I would like to convert the sub into a function like below.
Function PDFAddHTML(ByVal sHTML As String, ByVal oPos As Position) as boolean
        oDoc.TopDown = True
        oDoc.Rect.String = oPos.Left & " " & oPos.Top + oPos.Height & " " & oPos.Left + oPos.Width & " " & oPos.Top
        oDoc.AddHtml(sHTML)
 
        'Your code here          
       'Return True where there is no truncation in the Rect object
       'Return False where there is truncation in the Rect object
 
End Function
