Version history

This function was introduced in Quick PDF Library version 7.11.


Embeds a file into the PDF but does not link it to any part of the document.

The AddFileAttachment function can be used to make the embedded file available as an attachment in the PDF viewer. The PDF viewer must support this functionality (Adobe Reader 7 and later). This process can be done in one step using the EmbedFile function.

The AddLinkToEmbeddedFile function can be used to create a hotspot on a page that links to the embedded file.
