Topic: Placing a crosshair at mouse click
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 86607

I am having a problem, I have to mark the point on the pdf file when a user clicks and have to place a crosshair there that can be adjusted with the arrow keys and then need to trap the mouse click. I am not able to mark at that particular point, I tried marking with a single character "+", but this is not working. I need to place the crosshair at the point of mouse click and the crosshair should be configurable for color and size, can you help me out and if possible with some code snippets.

I would like to add that measure plugin from enfocus does this and I need to do that as done by enfocus. Attached is the plugin, please see it and tell me how I can achieve it programmatically. I am working on VC++ and non mfc.
