Class: TextAnnot

PDFNet. TextAnnot


new TextAnnot()

A text annotation represents a "sticky note" attached to a point in the PDF document. When closed, the annotation shall appear as an icon; when open, it shall display a pop-up window containing the text of the note in a font and size chosen by the conforming reader. Text annotations do not scale and rotate with the page (i.e. they should behave as if the NoZoom and NoRotate annotation flags).
