PDF Direct - creation of PDF-documents on the basis of existent documents in another format (conversion into PDF-format), creation of PDF-documents on the basis of program-generated data (calculation results, state of accounts, activity logs, etc.), saving of such documents in PDF-file or in a database.
The library is built in a special way to satisfy the requirements of almost any category of third-party developers or systems integrators.
Library requirements for installation and work are as good as missing.
Program interface of the library is easy, transparent and set on the analogy with most popular and widely spread libraries in other areas.
Hierarchy of the API-library correlates with the internal hierarchy of a PDF-document, which considerably simplifies developer's work with the contents of the PDF-document. At the same time, the developer does not need to comprehend PDF format; the library extracts data from the document "on the fly" and in the same way modifies the document.
The following programming languages are supported: C++, Delphi, C#, VB.NET, VB, JScript, C and more...
The library is fully Unicode enabled and provides data types for Unicode programming, this guarantees that texts in any language will be correctly stored in PDF an extracted from PDF.
Engine productivity and quality of the ready PDF-files allow using the engine in applications for end users as well as in server based applications, meant for work in an automated mode and for streamed production or processing of PDF-documents.
The library is safe for multithreaded operations - several PDF documents can be processed in different threads at the same time. For modification of one document from different threads, an additional synchronization will be required.
Creates PDF document objects
Adds empty pages to the document
Adds new pages and fills it over "draw" technique, using memory device
context or graphics (pseudo PDF device)
Saves PDF document to the PDF file in 100% compatible PDF format
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
