Setting default properties during control initialization

The properties of the stamp annotation can be set before creating the control using StampSettings.

After editing the default opacity using the Edit Opacity tool, they will be changed to the selected values.

<SfPdfViewerServer @ref="@viewer" DocumentPath="@DocumentPath" StampSettings="@StampSettings" >
</SfPdfViewerServer>

@code{
    SfPdfViewerServer viewer;
    private string DocumentPath { get; set; } = "wwwroot/Data/PDF_Succinctly.pdf";
    PdfViewerStampSettings StampSettings = new PdfViewerStampSettings {Opacity=0.3,Author="Blazor" };

}

Adding custom stamp to the PDF document via programmatically
