It should work like that with any stamp. If it's not then maybe there's
something wrong with your code.
Add the stamp to the Custom Stamps.
The issue is I'm doing this from the web view. I'm well aware of that when clicking stamps and then custom stamps you can select the stamp there and then hover before placing it but in this case it is not an option.
I would ideally want that this (hover before placing) can also happen with my custom made button.
1. Click on "my" button.
2. Cursor turns into stamp.
I'm getting the feeling that this might not be possible to do but any code or methods that involve moving stamps and so on would be appreciated.
Not sure what you mean by "web view"... Or what your code does, exactly.
Is it just adding a stamp annotation at a specific point? If so, after that the user should be able to drag it around to the desired location, just like with any other stamp. But you can't attach the stamp to the mouse cursor like it does when you use the built-in Stamp tool, if that's what you mean.
My code is just a button that adds a dynamic stamp with some user data. Nothing fancy.
This is the web view. In this case a Plug-In for Internet Explorer. It's made by Adobe.
It is even more restricted in capabilities and functionalities than the reader. You can not place a single thing in there. You can not move a single piece of the document in there. I found out that my Add-on Tools still seem to function in there. Issue is that even though I can place my stamp, due to restrictions of the web viewer, I can not move it if its placement is inconvenient.
If I have a document that needs to be stamped then I have my button for that but every document is different and I need to be able to choose where to place it at times. If this can't be done then that answers my question.
It can't be done.
Not sure how it's related, but OK...
If it is fully editable then I can use the buttons from acrobat to place my stamp and get the desired "stamp-on-cursor" effect. And the need for my buttons also falls. I just need to provide the stamps that way
