Hello,

I'm trying to add an annotations to a pdf that is open. Since the volume 3 is already out, I guess that it is possible to do now (see Thread #
123956)
Do you have a demo of how to add an annotation in an open pdf ? Like that one but with an highlight button for example https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/124587/is-there-a-pdf-sample-app-for-uwp ?
And is it possible to get the selected zone ? So that I know where to add the annotation ?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I'm testing it and it seems to be just what I need. 

Thanks for the fast answer and the demo.

I will come back to you if there is another problem, but it seems perfect.

Have a nice day !

Hello,

It is nearly perfect but not exactly what I want.

I would like to know the exact location of the selection. And with the selection, I would like to be able to add or remove annotations while the pdf is loaded. 

For example, A has entered some higlights. I keep this information. B opens the pdf and pushes on a button to see the annotations of A. Then, he pushes again and the annotations of A are removed.

So, is it possible to get the location of an annotation and add or remove it programmatically while the pdf is loaded ?

Thanks !

Hi Courtoy, 

At present we do not have support for extracting the bounds of the drawn annotation in our PDF viewer control UWP. We have added it to our feature request list. This feature will be included in any of our upcoming release. We request you to visit our website periodically for feature updates. 
 

Thanks, 
Balasubramanian S

2)      Text Markup Annotation (Highlight, Strikethrough, Underline). 
3)      Shapes Annotation (Line, Rectangle, Ellipse).

Hi Dhaval, 
 
Thank you for using Syncfusion products. 
 
The following screen shot illustrates the list of annotation features support by Syncfusion Essential PDF library (Link) and it is not related to Syncfusion Essential PDF viewer control in UWP. 
 
 
 
At present PDF Viewer supports in UWP only the following annotations: 
 
1)      Ink Annotation.  
2)      Text Markup Annotation (Highlight, Strikethrough, Underline).  
3)      Shapes Annotation (Line, Rectangle, Ellipse).  
 
We will implement the remaining annotation in PDF Viewer control in UWP in any of our upcoming release. 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.   
 
Regards, 
Sathish
