PDF as a background image

Craig,

I'm using Clarion 9.0 with Windows 8.1.

Since Clarion image controls don't support PDF, I am looking for an alternative way to display a PDF as a background image on a Clarion window with the ability to overlay fields over the image.

Is there any way to in force your OLE to just be a background image?

Thanks

Alan

Hi Alan!

Sorry, no, our ActiveX does not run in "background" mode.

My best suggestion for you is to use our Viewer to export the PDF pages to images, such as jpg, and then place those in an Image control as background.
