Creating Hyperlinks with SetHyperlink or other method

Post by Kiefer » Wed Jan 15 2003

This method is mentioned in the API, but I can find no documentation on this call or any way to use it. Can you provide more detailed information on:

1. How to programmatically create a web hyperlink in a PDF file with a specific region and destination.

2. How to create a hyperlink within a region in a PDF file that refers to another page and region within the same PDF file.

3. How to create a hyperlink within a region in a PDF file that refers to another page and region within a different PDF file.

Your follow up was really needed here to bring back your question to the top.

It seems none of the 55 persons who viewed your post uses the SetHyperlinks method.

We have a new manual for our Developers, it is "Common Driver Interface 210.pdf", you will find a sample on using SetHyperlinks to add a hyperlink to an existing page in the same document and to an external link in the internet.

To set a hyplerkink to a specific location in the same pdf file you can call:
SetHyperlink Printer.hdc, 0, "Bookmark1"

To set a hyplerlink to an external link you can call:
SetHyperlink Printer.hdc, "www.amyuni.com"

It is not possible to set a hyperkink to a specific location in another pdf file.

Hope this helps 8)
