Collapse All

This nethod adds a new tree node as the first sibling to a tree of the outline items.

Syntax

LONG PDFOUTLINES_AddChild (
LONG parentNodeIndex,
BSTR nodeTitle,
LONG actionIndex,
TxFontCharset charset
)
Parameters
parentNodeIndex
Index of a new node's parent node

nodeTitle
Title of a new node

actionIndex
Action index of a new node

charset
Character set (code page) of a new node

Return value
Index of the new node

Remarks

This method adds a new node to a tree as the child of the node specified by the parentNodeIndex parameter. It returns the node that has been added. An action (with an action index specified by actionIndex) executes when a user clicks the created node. The created node is added to the end of the node's list of child nodes and contains a nodeTitle paramter as text in a charset code page.

The return value is an outline identifier in document's outlines collection and can be used in SetCurrentPDFOutlineNode, PDFOUTLINES_Add, PDFOUTLINES_AddChild, PDFOUTLINES_AddFirst, PDFOUTLINES_Insert.

Equivalent in new interface: IPDFDocument4::AddOutlineChild, IPDFDocument4::AddUnicodeOutlineChild.
