Extract Text PathGeometry

Hi All

Im trying to extract the path info using xGraphicsPath but the path does not appear.

What am I doing wrong i added the code below to the HelloWorldExample sample?



                XGraphicsPath xpath = new XGraphicsPath();
               // XFont font = new XFont("Huxtable", 20);
                // Add the text to the path
                xpath.AddString(text1.Text, font.FontFamily, XFontStyle.Regular, 20,
                   new XRect(0, 0, page.Width, page.Height), XStringFormat.Center);
               // Path element in mainpage.xaml
                textpath.Data = xpath.Internals.WpfPath;

You do everything right. But now silverPDF doesn't allow to extract path info using xGraphicsPath. The problem in Silverlight it self. Silverlight doesn't allow to extract text path. It's theoretical possible to make extracting of path info but it's very hard, so maybe we will make it in future versions of silverPDF.
