table creation

Post by marcovdlinden » Wed Oct 03, 2012 12:03 pm

Are there any functions/tools/examples for the SDK that lets you create tables?

We wish to create a new PDF document with a table that spawns multiple pages.
And we are looking for functions (or examples) that split the table over as many pages as needed, taking in to account headers and footers and such and drawing the borders.

can this be done with the SDK?

Hello Marco,

Is that original table in any specific file format, or do you want to print from e.g. a database table?

Best,
Stefan

Its a new (database) table generated by our application which we want to save in to a PDF in table format.
So its not based on a file.

Hi marcovdlinden,

while I'm sure you could dump your table into a text file and send that to the PDF-Xchange Driver, or you could easily use pxclib to create the pdf without using driver, there is no functionality to do this:
" taking in to account headers and footers and such and drawing the borders."
