StamperTest - C#

The sample shows how to use 'pdftron.PDF.Stamper' utility class to stamp PDF pages with text, images, or with other PDF pages. ElementBuilder and ElementWriter should be used for more complex PDF stamping operations.

		// to ElementBuilder/ElementWriter it is not as powerful or flexible. In case you 
		// need full control over PDF creation use ElementBuilder/ElementWriter to add
