PDF-XChange/Tools 3.6102 for Clarion released

Post by John - Tracker Supp » Wed Jun 28, 2006 8:37 pm

Hi to all:

This is a fairly major update with regards the Clarion specific elements and
also lays the groundwork for some upcoming new features.

1) This Clarion version of PDF-XChange/Tools SDK's supports Version 3.6102
of our Libraries

2) This version of the libraries no longer requires fm30xmf.dll.

All copies of this file MUST be removed from any PC that is being upgraded
from an earlier version of PDF-Tools SDK For Clarion!

3) The PDF-Tools classes and templates have been reorganized:

a) A new PDFBuilderClass has been created that houses all of the
functionality necessary to build and augment a PDF, including Bookmarks.
Watermarks, Annotations, Overlays, Digital Signatures et al. The class is
contained in the new pdfbld35.inc and pdfbld35.clw files.

b) The PDFXToolsReportClass is now derived from PDFBuilderClass and is contained
in the pdfrpt30.inc and pdfrpt30.clw.
For both hand-coders and template-users, there should be NO CHANGE in any existing code.

However, Annotations and Watermarks now have the capability to be placed by Page Number as well as in-text codes.

c) A new PDFXToolsImageClass has been created that is also derived from PDFBuilderClass.

The class files are pdfimg35.inc and pdfimg35.clw.This class offers the
same PDF generation capabilities asPDFXToolsReportClass with one exception.
As there is no textual data in an image file, all placements of Bookmarks,
Watermarks, et al. must be added by page number.

4) New templates have been created to support Scan to PDF using the
PDFXToolsImageClass. These are found in pdfscn35.tpl. These have been
designated in the PDFXScanningTPL35 chain.

The original PDFXScanningTPL30 chain and associated class files are
untouched, so that users that have no need for the added functionality of
the new class and templates may continue to use them. See PDFXScan2PDF.pdf for more information.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards

Hi - addendum to yesterday's release - available today - build 3.60121 after several requests :
+++++++++++++

5) PDFBuilderClass has a new feature: the ability to maintain and access a
list of the generated file
names. Both derived classes (PDFXToolsReportClass and PDFXToolsImageClass)
support
creation of this list in their respective Generate methods.
a) To access the list the PDFBuilderClass class has two methods:
i) GenFileCount, which returns the number of filenames in the internal list.
ii) GetGenFile which returns the specified file name by an index number
which may be
from 1 to GenFileCount.
b) The Clarion Report and new Scanner templates support accessing this list
by having embed
points right after the Generate methods:
i) In the PDF-Tools Report template use "PDF-Tools After Good Generate".
ii) In the new Scanning templates use "PDF-Scanner After PDF Generation".
