Hello , Im using c++ sdk , I've created function to create the 3d annotation with embedded data ( my embedded data is GLTF file 😞

And also I have a function to create pdf with 3d annotation

How can i extract the GlTF file from my annotation and save it as a temp file ?

Since you have a detailed knowledge of the PDF structures, I'm not sure what advice to give. You find the annotation, fetch the relevant Cos object, and write the file. What obstacle do you face?

I'm new to sdk,im only learning, sorry for the poorly posed question , but can you explain more deeply please ? This fucnction is from acrobat samples ( embbeded u3d) , i know how to get annotation from the page, but how i can get relevat cos obj ( is it dictionary or strem ? ) an how to write file from the given  cosobject

You said you that you have a function to make a 3d Annot with your embedded data. Since you already have this code, it is a simple matter to look through the code for the bit where the data is embedded. This will tell you all you need to know about extracting the data.

If you are going to be mucking about with the PDF COS structure, you'll need this tool, which manipulates COS structure, so you can see what's going on and prototype the structures you'll be working with.

I think, that we embedded data here

  // Create a new 3D stream and set it under 3DD key in the annot dictionary

    CosObj stm3D = CosNewStream(cosDoc, true, fileStm, 0, true, attrObj, CosNewNull(), -1);

   CosDictPutKeyString(cosAnnot, "3DD", stm3D);

    ASStmClose(fileStm);

  ASFileClose(asGLTFFile);

As i think at first we can get PDAnnot from the current page with the help of  PDPageGetannotation, and the we can get Cos object ( PDAnnotGetCosObj) , but after this i still have no idea how to write new temp file from cos object , can you write corresponding methods to get my aim done , please ?

Have you studied the PDF specification in detail? You cannot proceed without detailed knowledge of the structure of your objects. You can enumerate PDAnnots to find it, and write using ASStm methods or platform file writing.

To read the data in a stream the key method is CosStreamGetStm.

You can write the data to a file with any method for writing files, or using the ASFile API. You already have the code for reading files. Have you read the detailed description of every method used in your sample code you are working with? (If it was up to me, I would ban sample code).

I've read the methods in sample , I came to this , thanks to your help. And now as I think , I need to youse ASStmRead method , but how I can get ASTArraySize and ASTCount , if I really need to use ASStmRead method

for (i2 = 0; i2 < PDPageGetNumAnnots(page); i2++)

                {

                    //Get a specific annotation

                    annot = PDPageGetAnnot(page,i2);

                //Checking annotation

                    if(!PDAnnotIsValid(annot))

                     {

                         sprintf(buf2, "No valid annotations");

                        AVAlertNote(buf1);

                     }

                    //open annotation

                    else

                    {

                        ASFile asGLTFFile = NULL;

                        CosObj stm = PDAnnotGetCosObj(annot);

                        ASStm a = CosStreamOpenStm(stm,0);

ASStmRead is very like the C "read" method. The two sizes are multiplied together to give a number of bytes. I always set itemSize to 1, so that the nItems value is the number of bytes in your buffer. Usefully, in this case, the return value is the number of bytes actually read.

Okay , Now I get number of items read from stm into memory , but how I need to write this into file ?

char* ptr1 = NULL;

                        ASFile asGLTFFile = NULL;

                        CosObj stm = PDAnnotGetCosObj(annot);

                        ASStm streamopen = CosStreamOpenStm(stm,0);

                        ASTCount streamlength = CosStreamPos(stm);

                        ASTCount a = ASStmRead(ptr1,1,streamlength,streamopen);

Return value from Read is number of bytes read. This is well described in the documentation.

Hello , again , I have the problem with opening the file , Now I have the code , that's  searching the annotation on the current page , and writing  data from it to the memory , and then to the temp file , but i have the problem with this file : adobe write files to the annotation dict in compressed format , and after extracting the file from annotation , I also have compressed file , that I can't open.

char* ptr1 = new char[1900000];
