PDFAnnotationMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class PDFKit MBS MacControls Plugin 7.6 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: This is the base class for all annotations.
A PDFAnnotation object by itself is not useful, only the subclasses (like PDFAnnotationCircle, PDFAnnotationText) are interesting. In parsing a PDF however, any unknown or unsupported annotations will be represented as this base class. Its drawRect method merely frames the bounds of the annotation and prints the annotation type (like "TrapNet") within the box.
This is an abstract class. You can't create an instance, but you can get one from various plugin functions.
