PdfXYZDestination Class

A destination that positions a specific coordinate at the top left corner of the document window, and zooms a page with the specified zoom factor.

Namespace: DevExpress.Pdf

Assembly: DevExpress.Pdf.v21.2.Core.dll


public class PdfXYZDestination :


The XYZ destination displays the page as follows:

  • A specific page point is positioned at the top left corner of the document window.
  • A page is magnified with the specified zoom factor.

You can associate any number of bookmarks and link annotations with a destination.

Associate a Bookmark with a Destination

This example shows how to create a bookmark with a destination that displays the page as follows:


using System.Collections.Generic;
using DevExpress.Pdf;

using (PdfDocumentProcessor documentProcessor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())
    // Load a document

    // Define search words
    string[] words = { "DX-B5000", "DX-RX800" };

    // Specify search parameters
    PdfTextSearchParameters searchParameters = new PdfTextSearchParameters();
    searchParameters.CaseSensitive = true;
    searchParameters.WholeWords = true;

    foreach (string word in words)
        // Get search results
        PdfTextSearchResults results = documentProcessor.FindText(word, searchParameters);

        // If the text is found, create a destination that positions the found text
        // at the upper window corner
        if (results.Status == PdfTextSearchStatus.Found)
            PdfXYZDestination destination = new PdfXYZDestination(results.Page, 0, results.Rectangles[0].Top, null);

            // Create a bookmark associated with the destination
            PdfBookmark bookmark = new PdfBookmark() { Title = word, Destination = destination };

            // Add the bookmark to the bookmark list
    // Save the modified document

Call the PdfPageFacade.AddLinkAnnotation method and pass a PdfXYZDestination object as a parameter to create a link annotation associated with a destination.

The code sample below creates a link annotation with a destination that displays the fifth page as follows:


using (PdfDocumentProcessor pdfDocumentProcessor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())
    // Load a document

    PdfDocumentFacade documentFacade = pdfDocumentProcessor.DocumentFacade;

    // Create an XYZ destination that refers to the fifth page
    PdfXYZDestination destination =
       documentFacade.Pages[4].CreateXYZDestination(100, 524, 1.2f);

    // Find a specific phrase
    string word = "Type 3 fonts";
    PdfTextSearchResults results = pdfDocumentProcessor.FindText(word);

    // If the phrase is found, obtain its bounding rectangle
    if (results.Status == PdfTextSearchStatus.Found)
        PdfRectangle textRectangle = results.Rectangles[0].BoundingRectangle;

        // Access first page properties
        PdfPageFacade pageFacade = documentFacade.Pages[0];

        // Create a link annotation associated with the bounding rectangle
        // and destination
        PdfLinkAnnotationFacade pdfLinkAnnotation =
           pageFacade.AddLinkAnnotation(textRectangle, destination);
        pdfLinkAnnotation.HighlightMode = PdfAnnotationHighlightingMode.Push;
