Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4437) Import XFDF stamp annotation loses appearance
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2019 05:01:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4437?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16750726#comment-16750726

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4437:

Thanks I'll test that later today and will find out whether our Hex works or not for you,
and also bring up the base64 thing.

However you didn't understand me when I wrote "{color:#333333}has to be decoded flexibly{color}",
sorry about that. I mean that you should not look much for specific items, you should look
for their types. So instead of


          if ("Interpolate".equals(childAttrKey)) 
            LOG.debug(parentAttrKey + " => Set Interpolate: " + childAttrVal);
            stream.setBoolean(COSName.INTERPOLATE, Boolean.parseBoolean(childAttrVal));
            LOG.warn(parentAttrKey + " => Not handling element BOOL key: " +

just do this:

            stream.setItem(c{color:#333333}hildAttrKey{color}, Boolean.parseBoolean(childAttrVal));

This is just for a boolean. The same should be done for the other types.

So for array:

     stream.setItem({color:#333333}parentAttrKey{color}, parseArrayElement(child));


Names that require specific handling should be handled separately, for example "Length" should
be ignored.

Your current code likely ignores the SMask component. That's why I warned "...{color:#333333}With
patterns, shadings, etc.{color}..." These are all new keywords.

>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: PDModel
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.9, 2.0.10, 2.0.11, 2.0.12, 2.0.13
>            Reporter: Andrew Hung
>            Priority: Major
>         Attachments: A1.01 - MYLES - 2ND-4TH  FLOOR PLAN.pdf, FDFAnnotationStamp.java,
FDFAnnotationStamp2.java, FDFAnnotationStampAppearance_final.java, FDFAnnotationStamp_final.java,
Stamp_appearance_decoded.txt, ap.xml, example.zip, stamp_annotation.xfdf, xfdf stamp annotation
to PDF.zip
> When loading an XFDF which has a stamp annotation which contains an appearance element
after added to the PDF in place of the annotation is an box with an X.
> Reviewing the FDFAnnotationStamp class, it skips all internal elements.  Is there any
development being done to enhance this?
> I've attached "xfdf stamp annotation to PDF.zip" which has an example, if you open the
stamp_annot.xfdf it will show on the PDF.  While using PDFBox API the only piece missing
is the appearance of the stamp.
