//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// This sample demonstrates how to create layers in PDF.
// The sample also shows how to extract and render PDF layers in documents 
// that contain optional content groups (OCGs)
//
// With the introduction of PDF version 1.5 came the concept of Layers. 
// Layers, or as they are more formally known Optional Content Groups (OCGs),
// refer to sections of content in a PDF document that can be selectively 
// viewed or hidden by document authors or consumers. This capability is useful 
// in CAD drawings, layered artwork, maps, multi-language documents etc.
//
// Notes: 
// ---------------------------------------
// - This sample is using CreateLayer() utility method to create new OCGs. 
//   CreateLayer() is relatively basic, however it can be extended to set 
//   other optional entries in the 'OCG' and 'OCProperties' dictionary. For 
//   a complete listing of possible entries in OC dictionary please refer to 
//   section 4.10 'Optional Content' in the PDF Reference Manual.
// - The sample is grouping all layer content into separate Form XObjects. 
//   Although using PDFNet is is also possible to specify Optional Content in 
//   Content Streams (Section 4.10.2 in PDF Reference), Optional Content in  
//   XObjects results in PDFs that are cleaner, less-error prone, and faster 
//   to process.
