BCL easyPDF SDK

Develop .NET PDF Applications in C#

A few lines of C# code are all it takes to convert Word to PDF for your .NET application:

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader) Activator.CreateInstance(type);

Printer oPrinter = (Printer) oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.Printer.7");

PrintJob oPrintJob = oPrinter.PrintJob;
oPrintJob.PrintOut(Server.MapPath (@".\input.doc"), Server.MapPath(@".\output.pdf"));
...

Complete PDF Features

BCL easyPDF SDK comes with all the PDF features that you may need in developing enterprise .NET server applications:

  • Create PDF
  • Process PDF
  • Rasterize PDF
  • PDF Form

Create PDF using C# in .NET Server Application

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);

Printer oPrinter = (Printer)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.Printer.7");

PrintJob oPrintJob = oPrinter.PrintJob;
oPrintJob.PrintOut(Server.MapPath(@".\input.doc"), Server.MapPath(@".\output.pdf"));
...
                  


Write C# Programs to Process and Manipulate PDF in .NET (Merging PDFs, Splitting PDF, Extracting Text from PDF, etc)

  • Read the PDFProcessor Object Specification
    This object lets you do post-processing of existing PDF files (such as merging multiple PDF files into one, splitting one PDF file into two, and encrypting/decrypting a PDF file)

Merging PDF Files

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);

PDFProcessor oProcessor = (PDFProcessor)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.PDFProcessor.7");

// merge two files using Merge
oProcessor.Merge(Server.MapPath(@".\input1.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\input2.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\merged.pdf"));

// merge more than two files using MergeBatch
string[] inputFiles = new string[] 
{ 
	Server.MapPath(@".\input1.pdf"),
	Server.MapPath(@".\input2.pdf"),
	Server.MapPath(@".\input3.pdf") 
};
oProcessor.MergeBatch(inputFiles, Server.MapPath(@".\merged.pdf"));
...
                  

 

Splitting PDF

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);

PDFProcessor oProcessor = (PDFProcessor)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.PDFProcessor.7");

// split the document at page 3
oProcessor.Split(Server.MapPath(@".\input.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\part1.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\part2.pdf"), 3);
...
                  

 

Extracting Text from PDF

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);

PDFProcessor oProcessor = (PDFProcessor)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.PDFProcessor.7");

// extract text from pages 1 through 4 to a physical file using ExtractText
oProcessor.ExtractText(Server.MapPath(@".\input.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\extracted.txt"), null, 0, 3, null, null);

// extract text from a bounding box on page 1 to a string variable using ExtractText2
string text = oProcessor.ExtractText2(Server.MapPath(@".\input.pdf"), 0, 0, 0, 300, 300, null);
...
                  

 

Write C# Program to Rasterize PDF in .NET

...
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);
 
PDFConverter oConverter = (PDFConverter)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.PDFConverter.7");
 
PDF2Image oPDF2Image = oConverter.PDF2Image;
oPDF2Image.Convert(Server.MapPath(@".\input.pdf"), Server.MapPath(@".\output.jpg"), null, null, null);
...
                  

Write C# Program to Process PDF Form Fields in .NET

Download the input.pdf form (line 27 below)

// this example takes the first two fields in a PDF template
// which are Name and Address, and populates them with 
// values of "BCL Technologies" and "Santa Clara, CA"
 
Type type = Type.GetTypeFromProgID("easyPDF.Loader.7");
Loader oLoader = (Loader)Activator.CreateInstance(type);
 
PDFDocument oDocument = (PDFDocument)oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.PDFDocument.7");
 
oDocument.Open(Server.MapPath(@".\input.pdf"));
 
// get all form fields from the PDF
 
FormFields oFormFields = oDocument.FormFields;

// get the first form field
FormField oFormField = oFormFields[0];
 
TextField oTextField;
 
if (oFormField.Type == docFormFieldType.DOC_FRMTYPE_TEXT && oFormField.Name == "Name")
    {
        // set Name to "BCL Technologies"
        oTextField = (TextField)oFormField;
        oTextField.Value = "BCL Technologies";
    }

// get the second form field
oFormField = oFormFields[1];

if (oFormField.Type == docFormFieldType.DOC_FRMTYPE_TEXT && oFormField.Name == "Address")
    {
        // set Address to "Santa Clara, CA"
        oTextField = (TextField)oFormField;
        oTextField.Value = "Santa Clara, CA";
    }
oDocument.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(@".\output.pdf"));

Complete PDF Features
  • “easyPDF SDK setup was very straightforward, unlike our experience with other products. We wrote just a few lines of code to start using it.” Read the case study
  • “We evaluated many PDF tools and drivers. We even wrote our own. Except for BCL’s easyPDF SDK, all had limitations we couldn’t live with. Some only converted from MS Office and not very well. Others could not do annotation or text stamping on PDF documents. None were as easy to use and as easy to integrate.” Read the case study
