Hello,

I need to create a link to the selected text so that when I click on it a certain page opens in the browser.
I created a PDAnnot object
PDAnnot annot = PDPageCreateAnnot (page, ASAtomFromString ("Link"), & fr);
Now, as I understand it, I need to add an action to this object - PDAction. But I don’t know how to do this. There is no such example in the Acrobat DC SDK in Documentation and in projects.

Help me, please.

Are you trying to create a javascript that will provide a user with a link that when you click on it it will jump to a designated page inside the same PDF  document?

 

OR,

 

Are you trying to embedd a URL in the PDF document, that when the user clicks on it, it will redirect to a webpage outside of the document and viewed in a default browser?

Looks like we're talking about different things. I'm talking about creating an addin application based on Visual C ++, you are talking about working with Acrobat Reader as a user.

Thanks. Everything worked out. I used the library sample https://github.com/datalogics/adobe-pdf-library-samples/blob/master/CPlusPlus/Sample_Source/ContentM... (Step 3). But, I had to slightly correct the code: replace the operator
PDAnnot URIAnnot = PDPageCreateAnnot (page1, ASAtomFromString ("Text"), & annotLocation);
to the operator
PDAnnot URIAnnot = PDPageCreateAnnot (page1, ASAtomFromString ("Link"), & annotLocation);
and delete the operator
CosDictPutKeyString (URILinkObj, "Subtype", CosNewNameFromString (inputDocCosDoc, false, "Link"));
After that, the code worked.
