ContentReplacerTest - PHP

This sample shows how to use pdftron.PDF.ContentReplacer to search and replace text strings and images in existing PDF (e.g. business cards and other PDF templates). Unlike PDF forms, the ContentReplacer works on actual PDF content and is not limited to static rectangular annotation regions.
