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

just do an If Then to check to see if the length of the string is less then width of the rectangle.
