Property LeadingType


This property sets or returns the current value for the type of leading and is interacting with LeadingVal.


LeadingType [ = LeadingType As eLeadingType]

Parameter      Description                     
  • LeadingType Type of leading to be used
    The LeadingType parameter can contain the following values:
    Constant          Value  Description            
  • prLTPercent 1 LeadingVal is percentage
  • prLTAbsolute 2 LeadingVal is absolute
  • prLTIncrement 3 LeadingVal is incremental

    The leading (in twips) is added to the value of CurrentY and is updated by AddTextAt.

    Percentage leading means that each line can be spaced with help of the specified percentage of the FontSize and is set by LeadingVal. Note that, with AddTextAt, which adds Graphic text elements, the whole string is in the same font specification, including size. The space between lines is normally about 30-40 % of the FontSize.

    Absolute leading means that lines start at the specified distance (in twips) vertically, regardless of the FontSize of the text, thus CurrentY will increase with the value of LeadingVal.

    Incremental leading means that the specified distance is added between the lines. Zero increment means that lines are spaced according to the FontSize of the text, thus CurrentY will be the result of FontSize + standard Leading + LeadingVal (in twips).

    Note that the default value of Autostep for AddTextAt is prASLine which updates CurrentY according to the current LeadingVal.


    To set two lines, separated by a half line space:

    Preview.LeadingType = prLTPercent
    Preview.LeadingVal = 80.0 ' remember the space between lines is about 30 - 40 %
    Preview.AddTextAt "Line One"
    Preview.AddTextAt "Line Two"
