Topic: ActivePDF Toolkit Performance Issue
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 104256

I am also a VB programmer and have a performance problem with my app. I am using activePDF Toolkit Pro to populate a form. Several hundred of these same forms needs to be populated. The portion of code that creates the forms takes over six minutes for these 337 forms. The inputform is a one page .pdf that seems pretty simple.

Briefly, outside my loop, I call:
Set objToolkit = CreateObject ("APToolkit.Object")

Inside the loop (for the 337 forms) I call:
objToolkit.SetFormFieldData ... (for all 34 fields)
objToolkit.CopyForm(0, 0)

After the loop I call:
Set objToolkit = Nothing

Any performance tuning ideas that can really speed things up, or at least cut down on the SIX + minutes the above code takes?

Thanks for your time,
