Deletes a template by using an index instead of a template handle.
The parameter Index represents an index into the array of templates used by the current open page. The number of templates used by a page is returned by the function DynaPDF.GetTemplCount.
It is not easy to identify a specific template, all templates used by a page can be deleted easily, but it is much more complex to delete a specific template if the page contains more than one.
However, if a template contains text, then the functions DynaPDF.EditTemplate and DynaPDF.GetPageText can be used to identify a template, but in most cases it is easier to delete a template and check the file with Acrobat or Reader to determine whether it was the right one.
