' pdfDocument.Load("existing_document.pdf")

Set comHelpers = pdfDocument.ComHelpers

' Add page
Set page1 = comHelpers.CreatePage(comHelpers.PAPERFORMAT_A4)

centerX = 200
centerY = 200

' Create clipping path from circle
Set clippingPath = comHelpers.CreatePath()
clippingPath.AddCircle centerX, centerY, 100

' Paint Bytescout.PDF.Rectangle over the clipping circle.
' Only part of the Bytescout.PDF.Rectangle intersecting the clipping circle will be drawn.
Set redBrush = comHelpers.CreateSolidBrush(comHelpers.CreateColorRGB(255, 0, 0))
