// then calls API methods and properties to create PDF document
// and returns created BytescoutPDF object instance
// this CreatePDF() function is called from Sample.html
 
function CreatePDF() {
 
    // create BytescoutPDF object instance
    var pdf = new BytescoutPDF();
 
    // set document properties: Title, subject, keywords, author name and creator name
    pdf.propertiesSet("Sample document title", "Sample subject", "keyword1, keyword 2, keyword3", "Document Author Name", "Document Creator Name");
 
    // add new page
    pdf.pageAdd();
 
    pdf.textSetBoxPadding(3);
 
    // set text box
    pdf.textSetBox(50, 50, 500, 500);
    // and draw a rectangle around it
    pdf.graphicsDrawRectangle(50, 50, 500, 500);
 
    // add aligned text:
 
    pdf.textSetAlign(BytescoutPDF.LEFT);
    pdf.textAddToBox('Left aligned text', true);
 
    pdf.textSetAlign(BytescoutPDF.CENTER);
    pdf.textAddToBox('Center aligned text', true);
 
    pdf.textSetAlign(BytescoutPDF.RIGHT);
    pdf.textAddToBox('Right aligned text', true);
 
    pdf.textSetAlign(BytescoutPDF.JUSTIFIED);
    pdf.textAddToBox('Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text Justfied text', true);
