Class AnnotationMarkup

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Cloneable

    public class AnnotationMarkup
    extends PDFAnnotation
    This class represents the type of PDFAnnotation created by the "Text Edit" option in Acrobat 6. There are several different subtypes of this annotation - "Highlight", "Underline", "Squiggly" or "StrikeOut", all of which can be determined by the crossed-out or underlined text in the PDF.

    • Constructor Detail

      • AnnotationMarkup

        public AnnotationMarkup​(String type)
        Create a new Markup Annotation. The type of markup must be specified, and may be one of:
        • "Highlight" (highlighted text)
        • "Underline" (underlined text)
        • "Squiggly" (squiggly underlined text)
        • "StrikeOut" (strikeout text)
        Parameters:
        type - the type of Markup Annotation
    • Method Detail

      • getType

        public String getType()
        Return the type of Markup Annotation - "Highlight", "Squiggly", "Underline" or "StrikeOut" (or, theoretically, another unknown value).
        Overrides:
        getType in class PDFAnnotation
        Returns:
        the type of Markup annotation
      • setCorners

        public void setCorners​(float x1,
                               float y1,
                               float x2,
                               float y2,
                               float x3,
                               float y3,
                               float x4,
                               float y4)

        Set the four corners (x1,y1) (x2,y2) (x3,y3) (x4,y4) of the quadrilateral that encompasses the text underlying this annotation. The baseline of the text this annotation is highlighting is assumed to run from (x1,y1) to (x2,y2).

        While the coordinates can describe any quadrilateral, some viewers may behave incorrectly if they are not all rectangular (e.g. Preview.app on OS X).

        Parameters:
        x1 - the X co-ordinate of the bottom-left corner of the text
        y1 - the Y co-ordinate of the bottom-left corner of the text
        x2 - the X co-ordinate of the bottom-right corner of the text
        y2 - the Y co-ordinate of the bottom-right corner of the text
        x3 - the X co-ordinate of the top-left corner of the text
        y3 - the Y co-ordinate of the top-left corner of the text
        x4 - the X co-ordinate of the top-right corner of the text
        y4 - the Y co-ordinate of the top-right corner of the text
      • setCorners

        public void setCorners​(float[] corners)

        Set a series of corners of the quadrilateral(s) that encompass the text underlying this annotation. The points are specified in the same order as for the other setCorners() method. The supplied array must be 8xn long, specifying the n quadrilaterals that make up the annotation.

        While the coordinates can describe any sequence of quadrilaterals, some viewers may behave incorrectly if they are not all rectangular (e.g. Preview.app on OS X).

        Parameters:
        corners - an array of 8xn values, each group of 8 specified as (x1,y1, x2,y2, x3,y3, x4,y4)

      • setCorners

        public void setCorners​(Shape shape)

        Attempt to set the corners of the annotation to the specified shape. This method will attempt to break the shape up into quadrilaterals, as required by the PDF specification. If for any reason the specified Shape cannot be split (and currently, only areas with no holes can be), then this method will throw an IllegalArgumentException.

        While the coordinates can describe any Shape, some viewers may behave incorrectly if it is not all rectangular (e.g. Preview.app on OS X).

      • setRectangle

        public void setRectangle​(float x1,
                                 float y1,
                                 float x2,
                                 float y2)
        Description copied from class: PDFAnnotation
        Set the rectangle for the annotation - where it is on the page. Every annotation must have a rectangle set - if it's not set when the document is written, it's forced to (0,0,0,0).
        • For AnnotationLink and AnnotationStamp annotations, this is the rectangle containing the hyperlink area or stamp.
        • For AnnotationNote annotations, whether this method adjusts the location of the icon or the popup window depends on whether the annotation is closed or open at the time of the call to this method. When closed, the icon is positioned at x1,y2

        Note that all co-ordinates are in absolute page co-ordinates. This means they are measured in points from the bottom-left hand corner of the page, regardless of any calls to PDFPage.rotate(float, float, double) or PDFPage.setUnits(float, int) that have been made. This restriction is part of the PDF specification.

        Overrides:
        setRectangle in class PDFAnnotation
        Parameters:
        x1 - the X co-ordinate of the bottom-left corner of the rectangle
        y1 - the Y co-ordinate of the bottom-left corner of the rectangle
        x2 - the X co-ordinate of the top-right corner of the rectangle
        y2 - the Y co-ordinate of the top-right corner of the rectangle
      • getCorners

        public float[] getCorners()
        Return the four corners of the text underlying the annotation
        Returns:
        an array of 8xn points, as set by setCorners()
      • rebuild

        public void rebuild()
        Description copied from class: PDFAnnotation
        Rebuild the annotation's appearance. This will be done automatically when required, usually just before saving the PDF or rasterizing it to a bitmap. However this method can be called explicitly if necessary, usually to ensure the rebuild (which may fire a PropertyChangeEvent) is run on a specific thread.
        Overrides:
        rebuild in class PDFAnnotation
