DynaPDFMBS.PageLink2(PosX as Double, PosY as Double, Width as Double, Height as Double, NamedDest as Integer) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 7.6 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: The function inserts a page link onto the current open page by using a named destination as target.
Notes: Also check the dynapdf manual on the pdfPageLink2 function.

See also PageLink2 function in DynaPDF manual.

DynaPDFMBS.PageLink3(PosX as Double, PosY as Double, Width as Double, Height as Double, NamedDest as string) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 12.1 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: The function adds a page link to the current open page by using a named destination as target.
Notes:
The difference in comparison to PageLink2() is that the named destination can be defined as string.
This makes it possible to create the link, also if you don't have the required information to create the named destination at this point. If the named destination does not exist when the file is closed then the link does nothing. See also, CreateNamedDest().

Return values:
If the function succeeds the return value is the annotation handle, a value greater or equal zero. If the function fails the return value is a negative error code.

Also check the dynapdf manual on the pdfPageLink3 function.

DynaPDFMBS.PolygonAnnot(Vertices() as DynapdfPointMBS, LineWidth as Double, FillColor as UInt32, StrokeColor as UInt32, ColorSpace as Integer, Author as string, Subject as string, Content as string) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 14.0 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: The function creates a Polygon Annotation.
Notes:
The vertices are connected by straight lines. The path is always closed before it will be drawn. It is not required to close the path explicitly. At least two vertices must be provided.
The coordinates of the vertices are interpretet in current user space. Any transformation that was applied on the coordinate system will be taken into account.
The stroke or fill color can be set to the special constant kNO_COLOR to fill or stroke the polygon. It is not allowed to set both colors to kNO_COLOR since this would result in an invisible annotation.
This annotation type has an associated PopUp annotation that displays the string Content in a floating window. The initial window state of the associated PopUp annotation is closed by default but the state can be changed with SetAnnotOpenState if necessary.


If the function succeeds the return value is the annotation handle, a value greater or equal zero. If the function fails the return value is a negative error code.

DynaPDFMBS.PolyLineAnnot(Vertices() as DynapdfPointMBS, LineWidth as Double, StartLineEndStyle as Integer, EndLineEndStyle as Integer, FillColor as UInt32, StrokeColor as UInt32, ColorSpace as Integer, Author as string, Subject as string, Content as string) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 14.0 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: The function creates a PolyLine Annotation.
Notes:
The vertices are connected by straight lines. At least two vertices must be provided.
The coordinates of the vertices are interpretet in current user space. Any transformation that was applied on the coordinate system will be taken into account.
The parameter FillColor is only used if the line end style of the start or end point has an interior that can be filled. The special constant kNO_COLOR represents a transparent interior.
The stroke color is required and must not be set to kNO_COLOR.

This annotation type has an associated PopUp annotation that displays the string Content in a floating window. The initial window state of the associated PopUp annotation is closed by default but the state can be changed with SetAnnotOpenState if necessary.
The parameter LineWidth must be in the range 0 through 12 units. Values outside the valid range will be adjusted to the nearest allowed value. A zero line width produces a 1 pixel wide line.
The line end styles can be changed if necessary with SetAnnotLineEndStyle.

If the function succeeds the return value is the annotation handle, a value greater or equal zero. If the function fails the return value is a negative error code.

DynaPDFMBS.PrintPDFFile(TmpDir as FolderItem, DocName as string, DCHandle as integer, Flags as Integer = 0, Margin as DynaPDFRectMBS = nil, PrintParams as DynaPDFPrintParamsMBS = nil) as Boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 15.1 No Yes No Yes, Windows only No
Function: Prints current PDF file.
Notes:
Returns true on success and false on failure.
Flags can be a combination of the flag values kpffPrintAsImage, kpffDefault, kpffColor, kpffAutoRotateAndCenter and kpff1Bit.
Margin can be nil. If not nil, specifies the margins to use.
DCHandle is the handle of the graphics context.

If you only want to print a selection of pages, please only import those pages via ImportPDFPage function. Or use DeletePage to remove the pages you don't want to print.

Does not work with a graphics handle from Xojo 2016r4 and newer due to switch to DirectDraw APIs.
Or in other words, you can use a HDC handle from graphics class in Xojo 2016r3 and older to print PDF.
