Type Default Value Read Only Description
XRect Letter Size
[0, 0, 612, 792].
Yes The current document page size.

 

   

Notes
 

This property reflects the size of the current page. It also determines the size of new pages created by the AddPage method. Note that changing the MediaBox does not change the current Rect. So typically, you'll want to write code like this:

theDoc.MediaBox = "0 0 200 300"
theDoc.Rect = theDoc.MediaBox

Changing this property will change the size of pages created by subsequent calls to AddPage. However, it will not change the size of the pages that have already been created. To change the size of the pages that have already been created, you need to use the SetInfo method. For example:

theDoc.SetInfo theDoc.Page, "/MediaBox:Rect", "0 0 200 300"

Similar methods can be used to control other page size measures such as the CropBox, BleedBox, TrimBox and ArtBox. For example:

theDoc.SetInfo theDoc.Page, "/CropBox:Rect", "20 20 180 280"

The default page size is often the one you'll want to use. However, it may be that your PDFs are required to conform to a different page size. If this is the case, you can simply specify the name of the size rather than the exact dimension. See the Rect.String property for details.

 

   

Example
 

The following code creates a PDF document containing three different pages each with a different size.

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf10.Doc")
theDoc.Page = theDoc.AddPage
theDoc.MediaBox = "A4"
theDoc.Page = theDoc.AddPage
theDoc.MediaBox = "B5"
theDoc.Page = theDoc.AddPage
theDoc.Save "c:\mypdfs\docmediabox.pdf"
