I just started making plugin-ins, so I ask many questions..
I get slightly(very..) confused over the many ways to access the different
There's CosObjects, PDEelement, PDAnnot, AFPDField, dictionaries.....
I'm wondering what is the best way to access the form-fields?
-And some more questions:
1. Copy a field from one page to another.
How do I copy a field?
It is quite easy to copy the annotation with PDPageGetAnnot and
PDPageAddAnnot, and I tried
to copy the CosOject as well, but that didn't work..
I have seen PDEElementCopy mentioned, can I use that?
2. Make a copy on same page.
If you create a field, and then copy it to another location on the page,
both fields are
linked to the same value.
How do I do this programatically?
If I understand the PDF Reference, I can make a copy of an AcroForm
dictionary, and add the
copy as a Kid.
-But I'm having some problems finding my way through the PDF Reference..
How is the Annotation dictionary and the AcroForm dictionary linked
