Draw a pave text. The text lines are added in order using the AddText method Line separator can be added using AddLine.

AddText returns a TText corresponding to the line added to the pave. This return value can be used to modify the text attributes.

Once the TPaveText is build the text of each line can be retrieved as a TText with GetLine and GetLineWith wich is also useful to modify the text attributes of a line.
