The AnnotationDialogFragment displays a list of all annotations in a document being viewed by a PDFViewCtrl. The list also contains any comments that have been added to the annotations.

To show an annotation dialog fragment in your activity, create a new instance of AnnotationDialogFragment by calling newInstance() and setting the PDFViewCtrl:

var annotationDialogFragment = AnnotationDialogFragment.NewInstance();
annotationDialogFragment.SetStyle((int)DialogFragmentStyle.NoTitle, Resource.Style.CustomAppTheme);
annotationDialogFragment.Show(this.SupportFragmentManager, "annotation_list_dialog");
annotationDialogFragment.AnnotationClicked += (sender, e) =>
    Console.WriteLine("AnnotationClicked on page: " + e.PageNum);
annotationDialogFragment.ExportAnnotations += (sender, e) =>


By calling setAnnotationDialogListener(AnnotationDialogListener), you can set a listener to be notified when an annotation item is clicked, or when document annotations are exported to a PDF doc when users click on the export floating action button.


If the document has write access, users can delete existing annotations by long-pressing on the annotation. To specify whether the document is read-only call setReadOnly(boolean).
