Subject Highlighted text annotation -- extract color and show in English name
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:41:57 GMT
Hi, actually I tried with getR, getG and getB before but it seems like the numbers returned
are not talking about the color of the highlighted text box. I just highlighted the text
by Adobe Reader with default yellow color, red and blue color at different area. One strange
thing is even I am using same color (e.g. yellow) to highlight at different areas, the PDGamma
strings returned with different values.

For getR, getG and getB, I can only get 1 or 0, but not hex-codes or decimal figures for RGB

I wish to get the highlighted text area color but not the text color, any further hints? 

System.out.format("getR(): %f%n", pdfAnnot.getColour().getR());
System.out.format("getG(): %f%n", pdfAnnot.getColour().getG());
System.out.format("getB(): %f%n", pdfAnnot.getColour().getB());

getR(): 1.000000
getG(): 1.000000
getB(): 0.000000
getR(): 1.000000
getG(): 1.000000
getB(): 0.000000
getR(): 1.000000
getG(): 1.000000
getB(): 0.000000
