public interface LargeElement
extends Element

Interface implemented by Element objects that can potentially consume a lot of memory. Objects implementing the LargeElement interface can be added to a Document more than once. If you have invoked setComplete(false), they will be added partially and the content that was added will be removed until you've invoked setComplete(true);

Since:
iText 2.0.8
