This method creates a watermark in a PDF document.

Syntax

LONG AddWatermark ()
Return value
Index of the new watermark

Remarks

The return value is a watermark identifier in the document's watermarks collection and can be used in SwitchToWatermark and AttachWatermark.

When you use Watermark functions, you must set the watermark to the page before all other output functions.
