Creates a note in the PDF documents. Notes in PDF documents are the equivalent of sticky notes and can be used to add comments and small items of information to a document.

The size of the note is determined by the bounding box starting at the lower left coordinates llx , lly and ending at the upper right coordinates urx , ury . contents sets the textual content of the note, while title is the text that appears in the title bar when the note is opened. icon sets the type of note icon that is displayed when the note is closed. These can be either "comment", "insert", "note", "paragraph", "newparagraph", "key" or "help". If open is 0 the note is displayed closed or if note is set to 1, the note is displayed as open.


Different icons are not supported if Acrobat 3 compatibility mode is set using pdf_set_value() .

Unix based Acrobat readers may only display the note icon even if another icon type has been specified.


Since version 4.0.5


Example 908. Create two notes


// create new document
$pdf = pdf_new();
pdf_begin_page($pdf, 500, 700);

// add first note type
pdf_add_note($pdf, 50, 650, 80, 610, "Some contents", "Here's one",  "key", 0);

// add second note type
pdf_add_note($pdf, 100, 600, 130, 570, "Some more contents", "Here's another",  "help", 0);
