Excerpt of article text...

I was going to continue with my PDF scale and rotation series I started in xDev 19.5, but then I got distracted by Xojo's new ability to add links within PDFs.

Finally you can create your own table of contents with links to within the document, or add links out to the Web. This takes Xojo PDF creation to the next level, and while the built-in features certainly aren't a threat to Monkeybread's DynaPDF plugin, they do mean that the feature is much more usable now.

Adding Some Links

You add links via the AddLinkArea method. According to the Xojo documentation, this command takes the following parameters:

PDFDocument.AddLinkArea(URL As String, x As Integer, y As Integer, width As Integer, height As Integer)
