Adds an action to a cell.
Creates an invisible link annotation for the specified cell or table and associates the provided action with that annotation. The result is an interactive area that executes the action if the user clicks on cell or table.
A cell action is always a background object that is created in the size of the background area when the table is drawn.

Unlike other cell objects like images, text, and so on, a cell link is no persistent object because the action will be deleted when then PDF file in memory will be closed or when DynaPDF.Release will be called.
If the table should be drawn into more than one PDF file then re-create the actions and cell action before drawing the table into the next PDF file.
Actions can be created with functions like DynaPDF.CreateGoToAction, DynaPDF.CreateGoToRAction, and so on.


Adds a go-to action for a cell in the table:

Set Variable [ $NamedDest ; Value: MBS( "DynaPDF.CreateNamedDest"; $pdf; "test"; 2; "Fit") ]
Set Variable [ $Action ; Value: MBS( "DynaPDF.CreateGoToActionEx"; $PDF; $NamedDest ) ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "DynaPDF.Table.SetCellAction"; $Table; $rowNum; 0; $action; "Invert" ) ]
