Vg2Pdf_SetLineWidth(pdf, 3.0);
pt1.x = 100.0; pt1.y = 600.0;
pt2.x = 200.0; pt2.y = 450.0;
Vg2Pdf_DrawLine(pdf, &pt1, &pt2);

// Enter layer
Vg2Pdf_OpenLayer(pdf, layer1);
// Add text object to the page
Vg2Pdf_SetTextFont(pdf, “Calibri”, 0, 12.0);
Vg2Pdf_DrawText(pdf, 100.0, 100.0, 0.0, “Hello World”);
// Close layer
Vg2Pdf_CloseLayer(pdf, layer1);
