TextFormatter is the WPF text engine that provides services for formatting text and breaking text lines. TextFormatter can handle different text character formats and paragraph styles, and includes support for international text layout. Unlike a traditional text API, the TextFormatter interacts with a text layout client through a set of callback methods. It requires the client to provide these methods in an implementation of the class. The following list describes the three members you must override:
GetPrecedingText: Retrieves the text span immediately before the specified position.
GetTextEffectCharacterIndexFromTextSourceCharacterIndex: Retrieves a value that maps a character index to a TextEffect character index.
