Adding multiline rich text

Post by radshat » Wed Dec 13, 2017 12:31 am

I need to be able to create multiline rich text annotation. The Acrobat JavaScript API reference allows the following. What is the equivalent in GdPicture? I don't mind doing this as a custom action on the server side.

Code: Select all

var annot = this.addAnnot({
page: 0,
type: "Text",
point: [72,500],
popupRect: [72, 500,6*72,500-2*72],
popupOpen: true,
noteIcon: "Help"
});

var spans = new Array();
spans[0] = new Object();
spans[0].text = "Attention:\r";
spans[0].textColor = color.blue;
spans[0].textSize = 18;

spans[1] = new Object();
spans[1].text = "Adobe Acrobat 6.0\r";
spans[1].textColor = color.red;
spans[1].textSize = 20;
spans[1].alignment = "center";

spans[2] = new Object();
spans[2].text = "will soon be here!";
spans[2].textColor = color.green;
spans[2].fontStyle = "italic";
spans[2].underline = true;
spans[2].alignment = "right";

// Now give the rich field a rich value
annot.richContents = spans;

Hello,

The equivalent in GdPicture is this one if you want to add a text annotation without user interaction:

Does this actually perform multiline text? Will it handle \n like Acrobat does?

The gdpicture method is not accepting rich text similar to how acrobat does in the original example. New lines can be created and individual words can have bold, color, alignment, etc.
