Add stamp annotationkeyboard_arrow_down

Add a stamp annotation to a PDF on Cross-Platform (Core)

A stamp in a PDF document is analogous to applying a rubber stamp on a paper document.

PDFTron SDK benefits include:

  • Stamp PDF pages with text, images, or with other PDF pages.
  • Embed fonts and images, and copy graphical elements from one page to another.

linkUse Stamper to stamp content (text, image, PDF page)

To stamp text, image, and a PDF page to a PDF document.

PDFDoc doc = new PDFDoc(filename);
Stamper s = new Stamper(Stamper.SizeType.e_relative_scale, .05, .05)

// Specifies if the stamp is to be stamped as an annotation.
// note that stamps created with this setting do not work with SetAsBackground, HasStamps, and DeleteStamps, if annotation is true.

s.SetAlignment(Stamper.HorizontalAlignment.e_horizontal_right, Stamper.VerticalAlignment.e_vertical_bottom);
s.SetAlignment(Stamper.HorizontalAlignment.e_horizontal_center, Stamper.VerticalAlignment.e_vertical_top);
s.SetFont(Font.Create(doc, Font.StandardType1Font.e_courier, true));
s.SetFontColor(new ColorPt(1, 0, 0, 0)); //set color to red
s.SetAsBackground(true); //set text stamp as background
s.StampText(doc, "This is a title!", new PageSet(1, 2));

Image img = Image.Create(doc, imagename);
s.SetAsBackground(false); // set image stamp as foreground
s.StampImage(doc, img, new PageSet(1));

PDFDoc src_doc = new PDFDoc(src_filename);
Page src_page = src_doc.GetPage(1);
s.StampPage(doc, src_page, new PageSet(1));

linkAbout Stamper

Stamper can be used for PDF pages with text, images, or with other PDF content in only a few lines of code. Although Stamper is very simple to use compared to ElementBuilder/ElementWriter it is not as powerful or flexible. In case you need full control over PDF creation use ElementBuilder/ElementWriter to add new content to existing PDF pages as shown in the ElementBuilder sample project.
