Enhancement - Creating NamedDestination in existing PDF

Related issue: PDFJAVA-37494


Some of our customers have requirement to create NamedDestination in existing PDF:

The method Document.getNamedDestinations() was implemented. This allows to manipulate with Named Destinations. 

NamedDestinationCollection has the following properties: 

public IAppointment get_Item(String name); Gets destination by its name.

public void set_Item(String name, IAppointment value); Sets destination by its name.

public int getCount(); Returns count of the destinations.

public void remove(String name); Removes destination by its name.

public void add(String name, IAppointment appointment); Adds new named destination.


 Document pdf = new Document();

//create document with 100 pages

for (int i = 1; i <= 100; i++)


 Page page = pdf.getPages().add();

 page.addStamp(new com.aspose.pdf.TextStamp("Page " + i));

 //named destinations for every page

 pdf.getNamedDestinations().add("Page" + i, new com.aspose.pdf.XYZExplicitDestination(i, 0, 600, 0.5));


for (int i = 1; i <= 100; i++)


 //create outlines (two outlines for every page)

 com.aspose.pdf.OutlineItemCollection item1 = new com.aspose.pdf.OutlineItemCollection(pdf.getOutlines());

 item1.setDestination (new com.aspose.pdf.NamedDestination(pdf, "Page" + i));

 item1.setTitle ("Page  " + i + "(1)");


 com.aspose.pdf.OutlineItemCollection item2 = new com.aspose.pdf.OutlineItemCollection(pdf.getOutlines());

 item2.setDestination (new com.aspose.pdf.NamedDestination(pdf, "Page" + i));

 item2.setTitle ("Page  " + i + "(2)");



//let's update on of the named destinations

pdf.getNamedDestinations().set_Item("Page50", new com.aspose.pdf.XYZExplicitDestination(50, 0, 100, 2));"result.pdf");
