Creating Watermark / Annotations
Question asked by John Tsombakos - June 4 at 6:51 AM
We are evaluating DocumentUltimate to display PDF's and allow users to make comments / annotations.

Using Dotnet MVC, I know I can create a text or image watermark when creating a new DocumentViewer object:

                Watermarks =
                    new TextWatermark
                        Width = 50,
                        Height = 50,
                        SizeIsPercentage = true,
                        AnnotationMode = true,
                        PageRange = "2"
The questions is, we want our users to be able to create annotation / watermarks on the fly. We can manage saving the data to our database, but how would we go about adding all the detail of the watermark. When showing watermarks, clicking on one will show some detail to the right, but it looks as if most of the information is missing.

What would be the best way to do this? Can I retrieve all of the annotations from a document, that a user created? Can a user create a watermark/annotation on the fly?

This is a big requirement in choosing a PDF display technology.

As of current version, DocumentViewer supports annotations in read-only mode. So, if you load a e.g. PDF file with annotations (e.g. which are added in Adobe Acrobat), it can display those annotations. However, we plan to add “editing annotations” feature in future versions.
