Handle to the PDE place object. A place is an element that marks a place on a page in a PDF file. In a PDF file, a place is represented by the MP or DP Marked Content operators.

Marked content is useful for adding structure information to a PDF file. For instance, a drawing program may want to mark a point with information, such as the start of a path of a certain type. Marked content provides a way to retain this information in the PDF file. A DP operator functions the same as the MP operator and, in addition, allows a property list dictionary to be associated with a place.


IG_PDE_place_create Creates a place object.
IG_PDE_place_get_dictionary Gets the Marked Content dictionary for hPlace.
IG_PDE_place_get_mctag Gets the Marked Content tag for a hPlace.
IG_PDE_place_set_dictionary Sets the Marked Content dictionary for hPlace.
IG_PDE_place_set_mctag Sets the Marked Content tag for a hPlace.
