Adding markup via API

213 Views, 9 Replies

Is it possible to add redline markup to a DWF file using the DWF Composer API? I haven't found a way, but I'm new to the DWF world. I realize I could do this by rewriting the file with a program using the DWF toolkit, but I need to do it from Composer for UI-related reasons. Also, does anyone know if it's possible to protect markup entered programatically (either with the Composer API or with the toolkits) from later being altered by a user with DWF Composer? Thanks, David

Sorry, we currently do not expose an API for markup (nor for protecting markup). It is possible we may provide an API in future releases.

Can you provide a function which can add catagory(customized symbol) when doing marking in the future release?

I've put your request in the wish list queue for review - thanks for the feedback! If you can think of any other important API calls for your customized designs we would love to hear about them.

1. API help file for dwf v5 (a good one with examples for everything, not just another list of properties and methods) 2. PrintEX for EModel 3.

Another request: I would like to use the API to add text to a dwf via of Composer or DWF Viewer and then save the DWF with the new text.

FWIW, if we have an API that allows graphics to a DWF, it must always be in the form of a markup. We cannot allow new graphics to appear as "original data", for obvious security reasons.

Thanks Jeffrey, I think that adding a graphic would work for me. Could you give me a little more information? I would like to do this from VB6. Do you have any sample code? Any help would be appreciated.

We do not have API for this at present. *IF* we did have the API for this (we do not), it would likely only allow *markups* to be added, not simple graphics/images like you imply. I only intended to warn you of a likely future direction. "Bob" wrote in message news:414ae474$1_2@newsprd01... > Thanks Jeffrey, I think that adding a graphic would work for me.
