Topic: Create destination from rectangle
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 136126

I am trying to get the text selection and then find out the bounding rectangle to it. Then I want to create a destination that pointing to the top of that rectangle. I also want to create another destination that is pointing to the bottom of that rectangle. The code below can get the correct bounding rectangle but failed to create a destination base on the rectangle information:

PDTextSelect ts = (PDTextSelect) AVDocGetSelection(avDoc);

ASFixedRect boundingRect;
PDTextSelectGetBoundingRect(ts, &boundingRect);

AVPageView pageView = AVDocGetPageView(avDoc);
AVRect avRect;
AVPageViewRectToDevice(pageView, &boundingRect, &avRect);
AVPageViewDrawRectOutline(pageView, &avRect, 5, NULL, 0);

ASFixedRect rect;
rect.left = 0; =;
rect.right = 0;
rect.bottom = 0;

// We make top-level bookmarks only, so add a new bookmark to the root
PDBookmark bmRoot, bmNode;
bmRoot = PDDocGetBookmarkRoot (pdDoc);
bmNode = PDBookmarkAddNewChild (bmRoot, bmName);

PDViewDestination pdvDest = PDViewDestCreate(pdDoc,

What's wrong with the part of dealing with the rectangle?
