Create annotations

A variety of annotations can be created such as sticky note (text annotations), link annotations, stamp annotations, and more.

Add a stamp annotation

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.

linkStamp a PDF Page

To stamp an image to a page in a PDF document.

PTPDFDoc *doc = [[PTPDFDoc alloc] initWithFilepath: filename];
PTStamper *s = [[PTStamper alloc] initWithSize_type: e_ptrelative_scale a: 0.05 b: 0.05];

PTImage *img = [PTImage Create: [doc GetSDFDoc] filename: imagename];
[s SetSize: e_ptrelative_scale a: 0.5 b: 0.5];

//set position of the image to the center, left of PDF pages
[s SetAlignment: e_pthorizontal_left vertical_alignment: e_ptvertical_center];
PTColorPt *pt = [[PTColorPt alloc] initWithX: 0 y: 0 z: 0 w: 0];
[s SetFontColor: pt];
[s SetRotation: 180];

// Specifies if the stamp is to be stamped in the background or the foreground.
//[s SetAsBackground: NO];

// 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 SetAsAnnotation: YES]; 

//only stamp first 2 pages
PTPageSet *ps = [[PTPageSet alloc] initWithRange_start: 1 range_end: 2 filter: e_ptall];
[s StampImage: doc src_img: img dest_pages: ps];

linkAbout stamping a PDF page

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.
