[MBS] DynaPDF - MoveTo(x,y) and GetLastTextPosY

Hi!

I am calling the DynaPDF MoveTo function to set the X and Y to position somewhere on the current PDF page…

A subsequent getLastTextPosY call does not produce the same Y value…
(the fact that the function is called “getLastTextPosY" and not “getLastPosY" kind of gives the answer away…)

Is there a way to position the Text Position on the current page without actually writing any text???

Thanks.

Hans

Writing empty text?

I tried writing empty text, however that does not modify the current Y position.
Only when you actually write non-empty text..

I guess I have to implement a modified GetLastTextPos X and Y
Not a big deal…
