Creates a go-to-remote action.
Creates a go-to-remote action that opens a named destination in an external PDF file. The parameter DestName must be the name of a named destination located in the external PDF file. Note that this is a binary string which must be specified exactly and case-sensitive. If the name was originally defined as an Unicode string, the go-to remote action must use the same string format. Otherwise the destination cannot be found. See also DynaPDF.CreateNamedDest.

The path to the external PDF file should be defined as relative path. Actions must be added to a PDF object with DynaPDF.AddActionToObj.
Unicode file path are supported since PDF 1.7 (Acrobat 8). Earlier Acrobat versions will fail to open the file if the path contains non-Ansi characters.

If the function succeeds the return value is the action handle, a value greater or equal zero.
