Parameter Description Example
PDF The PDF reference. $pdf


Returns list of values or error.


Computes the bounding box of the current selection.
Use after DynaPDF.Parser.FindText to query selection location on page.
The bounding box is calculated in top down coordinates! This differs in comparison to almost all other functions which return PDF coordinates.
In order to place objects on this position it is usually best to enable visible coordinates with DynaPDF.SetUseVisibleCoords and to rotate the coordinate system with DynaPDF.SetOrientationEx according to the page orientation after the page was opened for editing.
Returns a list of values with coordinates, x1/y1 and x2/y2.
