Status of PDF Xchange when printing

Post by DreyZ » Tue Jul 10, 2007 7:05 am

Hey guys,

I'm new to PDF Xchange, and i have done a search for the past 15 minutes on this but i haven't found anything on this.

We currently work with PDF Xchange Pro v3 and I'm wondering if there is any way that we can find out when PDF Xchange has finished creating a PDF document?

At the moment our code goes into a time loop which is meant to wait for PDF Xchange to create the PDF document, before proceding to the next steps. However I don't think this is a very good way of doing this, as there could be a document or many documents printing, which could take longer than the time loop.
If there is a way to request a status from PDF Xchange to notify or return a "file complete" status it would be great.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

You can use messages or driver's ActiveX for such purposes. This methods are described into Drv_Api.chm file.
With messages the message PDFXC3_DocSaved should be used.
With AX - OnFileSaved event.
