Topic: Create Stamp Annotation
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 102756

I am trying to create an annotation of type Stamp using Acrobat 5.0 SDK.
I have the file (pdf) in c:\program files\acrobat 5.0\acrobat\plug_ins\annotations\stamps\enu

There's a function PDPageAddNewAnnot. However, I am not sure how to use it to create a stamp and where to set the stamp properties, so that it loads the stap from my specific pdf annotation file.

I know I can do it through the JavaScript addAnnot() function. but the problem is: I need to create a stamp at the mouse cursor location. Just like the stamp tool in the standard Acrobat menu.

Any help is very welcome!



----- PS
Here's some code that I tried:
PDAnnot ann = PDPageAddNewAnnot(p, AnnotCnt - 1, ASAtomFromString("ADBE:Stamper"), &rect);
