I'm trying to figure out how to create a merged PDF file that has a cover page containing a table of contents of the merged documents with links to the first page of each merged document.

I looked at the PdfDocumentLinkAnnotation class but I don't know how to get destination for each of the merged files. I'm merging about 30 PDF files with PdfDocument.Merge(files).

Hi David,

Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.

We can create Table of contents using Essential PDF. We have attached the sample using TOC. Please got through the sample and let us know if you have any questions.

In your sample, you use doc.Pages.Add() which returns a PdfPage which you then can use to create a PdfDestination.

But in my case I'm merging PDFs and the Merge method does not return the inserted document, rather it returns the merged document so the destination would always point to the first page.

I am trying to achieve the same thing (merge documents, create a TOC with internal navigation links to the individual merged documents).

I am unable to download the mentioned sample.

Please advise.

Best regards,
