Problem in hiding the free text annoation after entering some text .show error when i tried to hide annotation using method called PDAnnotSetFlags(newPdannot, pdAnnotNoView ). Do PDAnnotSetFlags(newPdannot, pdAnnotNoView ) support the property of pdAnnotNoView for free text tool???

Steps iam fololwing to show/hide the annotation are

1.Determine the page range to work on i.e getting no of pages of the PDF document using PDDocGetNumPages(m_oPDDoc);

2.Acquireing Page using PDDocAcquirePage(m_oPDDoc, iPageIndex)

3.Getting no.of annotation of the PDF page using PDPageGetNumAnnots(pdPage)

4. Getting each annot from PDFpage and check wheather the PDannot is valid oAnno = PDPageGetAnnot(pdPage, iAnno);(PDAnnotIsValid(oAnno)

5.Getting the flag of the annot
iAnnoFlags= PDAnnotGetFlags(oAnno);

6.Inoder to show/hide the annot

To Show :-

iAnnoFlags &= (~pdAnnotNoView);
PDAnnotSetFlags(oAnno, iAnnoFlags);
To Hide:-

iAnnoFlags |= pdAnnotNoView;
PDAnnotSetFlags(oAnno, iAnnoFlags);

The pdAnnotNoView is the properties of PDAnnot .when the application its show error at PDAnnotSetFlags(oAnno, iAnnoFlags).This code works fine with other annotations.Gives error only for free text annoatation.

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
