Return Values



Note 1: Coordinate system information:

  1. The unit size of PDF user space is 1/72 inch (1 inch = 72 PDF user space unit).
  2. The location of the origin (0, 0) is at top-left corner.
  3. To get page size information from a PDF file, use GetPageSize method.

    The page number uses zero-based index, meaning that page number starts from 0.

Note 2: OLE_COLOR conversion from various programming languages:


static_cast<OLE_COLOR>(RGB(0, 0, 255))


RGB(0, 0, 255)


Convert.ToUInt32(System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(Color.FromArgb(0, 0, 255))


(uint)System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.ToOle(Color.FromArgb(0, 0, 255))


32 bit integer value in following format: 0x00bbggrr (in BGR format, not in RGB)

For more information about color translation, refer to MSDN Knowledge Base article Q131101.

Note 3:This method supports only basic Latin characters (ISO-8859-1).

Note 4:You can insert page number by using "%p" (current page) and "%P" (total page). Example: "Page %p of %P".
