        Dim font1 As New Font("Arial", 10, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Point)
            Dim rect1 As New Rectangle(10, 10, 1000, 140)

            ' of text centered on the page. 
            Dim stringFormat As New StringFormat()
            stringFormat.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center

            Dim txt_size As SizeF
            txt_size = e.Graphics.MeasureString(RichTextBox1.Text, the_font)
            e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(Pens.Red, 10, 10, txt_size.Width, txt_size.Height)

        ' Save the current graphics state.
        Dim state As GraphicsState = gr.Save()
        ' Set up the transformation.
        Dim scale_x As Integer = IIf(flip_x, -1, 1)
        Dim scale_y As Integer = IIf(flip_y, -1, 1)
        gr.ScaleTransform(scale_x, scale_y)

        ' Figure out where to draw.
        Dim txt_size As SizeF = gr.MeasureString(txt, the_font)
        If flip_x Then x = -x - RichTextBox1.Size.Width
        If flip_y Then y = -y - RichTextBox1.Size.Height

        ' Draw.
