WebThumbnailViewer and WebAnnotationViewer questions
We are evaluating DotImage and I have the following questions regarding specific capabilities:
1) It looks like the Annotation functionality is coupled with the different viewer controls. We would like to be able to process annotations on the back end without invoking a viewer. For example, given a document, one of our users might want to e-mail a document with the annotations burned on to them. I have figured out how to create and persist annotations using the WebAnnotationViewer but it isn't clear to me how to process annotations outisde the viewer. Is this possible? Can you point me to some examples?
2) We would like to provide the user the ability to stamp every page of a document with some arbitrary text with a single operation. I can handle the prompting of the user for their stamp text as well as invoking a method in the code behind, but it's not clear to me how to add a stamp to each page on the server side.
3) Is it possible to add controls to each page in the thumbnail viewer? For example, we would like to provide checkboxes to select pages as I think it's more intuitive in a web environment than control-clicking to select multiple items. We would also like to be able to add buttons or links to each thumbnail that would perform an operation on that page.
