Topic: Create a custom Annotation & Plug-in
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 35811

I know that we can create custom annotations by modifying the COS objects in PDF. I need to create a custom annotation through which I can "hide" some information in a document. This information should not be visible to any user who does not have a pluggin to handle my custom annotation. This annotation should be associated with some text on the document. For the user who has a plugin to handle my annoation should see the associated text "highlighted", when he clicks on this text the hidden information should be passed to the parent process ( process which called the acrobat application for viewing the PDF, e.g. power builder ).
So I need help in creating such a annotation and a plug-in to handle this. Can you also refer to me some documentation which can help in this regard, or are there already such annotation available on net, just need to download them ?
