The function moves a page to another position in the document.
Moving a page requires some processing time if the document contains many bookmarks or page links because the destinations of all links and bookmarks must be modified so that they refer still to the correct page. For example, if the first page of a document should be moved to the last page, all pages of the document must be reordered. If the document is large and if it contains a few thousands page links as well as bookmarks, this action can take a while.
The parameter Source must be a valid page number in the document. Page numbering starts at one. If the destination page is larger than the source page, the page number can be greater than the number of pages currently available in the document. The document is then filled with empty pages until the destination page becomes valid.
If the destination page is smaller than the source page number, both page numbers must already exist in the document.
It is also possible to exchange two pages with DynaPDF.ExchangePage.
