Type Default Value Read Only Description
Double 0.0 No The inter-word spacing.




This property controls the spacing between each adjacent pair of words.

This property works in a similar way to the CharSpacing property, but the value is added to only space characters in the string. This has the effect of spacing out words or pushing them together depending whether a positive or negative value is provided.

Because this property is an absolute value, the visual effect will be greater if your text is smaller.




In this example, we add three blocks of text to a document. The first block uses the default spacing. The second block uses a positive value to stretch out the text. The last block uses a negative value to condense the text.

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf10.Doc")
theText = "This is an example of word spacing."
theDoc.TextStyle.Size = 72
theDoc.AddText theText
theDoc.Rect.Move 0, -300
theDoc.TextStyle.WordSpacing = 20
theDoc.AddText theText
theDoc.Rect.Move 0, -300
theDoc.TextStyle.WordSpacing = -20
theDoc.AddText theText
theDoc.Save "c:\mypdfs\stylewspace.pdf"
