Class: OCMD

PDFNet. OCMD


new OCMD()

The OCMD object represents an Optional Content Membership Dictionary (OCMD) that allows the visibility of optional content to depend on the states in a set of optional-content groups (OCG::Group). The object directly corresponds to the OCMD dictionary (Section 4.10.1 'Optional Content Groups' in PDF Reference).

An OCMD collects a set of OCGs. It sets a visibility policy, so that content in the member groups is visible only when all groups are ON or OFF, or when any of the groups is ON or OFF. This makes it possible to set up complex dependencies among groups. For example, an object can be visible only if some other conditions are met (such as if another layer is visible).

Methods


<static> create(pdfdoc, ocgs, vis_policy)

Creates a new optional-content membership dictionary (OCMD) object in the given document for the given groups and visibility policy.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
pdfdoc PDFNet.PDFDoc

The document in which the new OCMD will be created.

ocgs PDFNet.Obj

An array of optional-content groups (OCGs) to be members of the dictionary.

vis_policy number/enum
PDFNet.OCMD.VisibilityPolicyType = {
	e_AllOn : 0
	e_AnyOn : 1
	e_AnyOff : 2
	e_AllOff : 3
}

The visibility policy that determines the visibility of content with respect to the ON-OFF state of OCGs listed in the dictionary.

Returns:

A promise that resolves to the newly created OCG::OCMD object.

Type
PDFNet.OCMD

<static> createFromObj(ocmd_dict)

Parameters:
Name Type Description
ocmd_dict PDFNet.Obj
Returns:

A promise that resolves to an object of type: "OCMD"

Type
PDFNet.OCMD

copy()

Copy Constructor

Returns:

A promise that resolves to an object of type: "OCMD"

Type
PDFNet.OCMD

getOCGs()

Returns the optional-content groups listed under 'OCGs' entry in the object dictionary.

Returns:

A promise that resolves to a dictionary (for a single OCG::Group object), an SDF::Obj array (for multiple OCG::Group objects) or NULL (for an empty OCMD).

Type
PDFNet.Obj

getSDFObj()

Returns:

A promise that resolves to pointer to the underlying SDF/Cos object.

Type
PDFNet.Obj

getVisibilityExpression()

Returns:

A promise that resolves to if the PDOCMD has a visibility expression entry, return the SDF::Obj array object representing the expression, otherwise returns NULL.

Type
PDFNet.Obj

getVisibilityPolicy()

Returns the optional-content membership dictionary's visibility policy, which determines the visibility of content with respect to the ON-OFF state of OCGs listed in the dictionary.

Returns:

A promise that resolves to the visibility policy.

Type
number
Example
Return value enum:
<pre>
PDFNet.OCMD.VisibilityPolicyType = {
	e_AllOn : 0
	e_AnyOn : 1
	e_AnyOff : 2
	e_AllOff : 3
}
</pre>

isCurrentlyVisible(ctx)

Parameters:
Name Type Description
ctx PDFNet.OCGContext

The context in which the visibility of content is tested.

Returns:

A promise that resolves to true if content tagged with this OCMD is visible in the given context, false if it is hidden.

Based on the optional-content groups listed in the dictionary, the current ON-OFF state of those groups within the specified context, and the dictionary's visibility policy, test whether the content tagged with this dictionary would be visible.

Type
boolean

isValid()

Returns:

A promise that resolves to true if this is a valid (non-null) OCMD, false otherwise.

Type
boolean

setVisibilityPolicy(vis_policy)

Sets the optional-content membership dictionary's visibility policy, which determines the visibility of content with respect to the ON-OFF state of OCGs listed in the dictionary.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
vis_policy number/enum
PDFNet.OCMD.VisibilityPolicyType = {
	e_AllOn : 0
	e_AnyOn : 1
	e_AnyOff : 2
	e_AllOff : 3
}

New visibility policy.
