Hi, I'm searching for a way to add a Free Text Annotation with a specific name, like this Acrobat JavaScript:

        for (var p=0; p<this.numPages; p++)
            var annotRect = [82,10,250,17];
            var a = this.addAnnot({page: p, type: "FreeText", rect: annotRect, width: 0, name: "UniqueRef"});

But, I did not found how to execute this with Syncfusion.Pdf; the PdfFreeTextAnnotation class does not have a "Name" property.

Thank you

Hi Claudio

Thank you for using syncfusion products,

Currently we don’t have property to set the unique name to the free text annotation, so we have logged “Need to add the property Name in free text annotation” feature request in our database. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. We will update you when this feature has been implemented.
