PDF, RTF, HTML controls as VCL, .NET and OCX

WPCubed wordprocessing controls

With the components produced by WPCubed You can offer your customers state of the art embedded word processing - integrated directly into your Delphi VCL or Visual Studio .NET application. WPTools and TextDynamic is also widely used to create texts, such as contracts or invoices. Documents can be loaded and saved as RTF, HTML or in "WPTOOLS" format. Export to PDF is possible and simple to implement.
Our technology can also be easily integrated into legacy applications, i.e. VB6 applications or programs written in C or C++.

We also market components for server side (ASP) text creation and manipulation.
Our word processing engine is not based on the Windows® DLL "Richedit". It has been created from scratch using optimized code and consequently does not require any 3rd party DLLs to operate. Optionally it can make use of internal spell checking, PDF export and also reporting.

WPTools - 100% VCL word processing solution

WPTools Version 7 - wordprocessing control for Delphi and C++ Builder

WPTools® V7 VCL is a suite of native Delphi/C++Builder components to create and edit formatted text supporting compilers from Delphi 5 to Delphi XE6 and C++Builder.

As Delphi developer You know - the advantages of a true VCL component are hard to beat. A true VCL component can be configured inside the IDE, it compiles directly into the application and does not require any runtime libraries. When the source code is available it is easy to find problems and to enhance the component.

WPTools is such a true VCL. It is a word processing VCL which is on the market since 15. January 1996. Since then it was modernized and grew with the capability of the Delphi compiler. Now it is THE state of the art word processing component for Delphi. Licensing is still very affordable, although it already integrates many features in the basis edition, which require expensive add-ons in some expensive ActiveX competing components.

There are no royalties - it is only required that each and every developer is licensed who work in the project. Licenses also may not passed around between developers in the same company.

With WPTools You can impress the end user of Your application, with just a few clicks on your side. Of course WPTools is no "black box" - it is a highly customizable and very powerfulword processing engine.

TextDynamic .NET and TextDynamic ActiveX

TextDynamic - word processing and edit control for .NET as ActiveX and DLL.

TextDynamic is a royalty free word processing and reporting control which can be embedded into applications.

It can be used to create text in code or to offer the end user WYSIWYG editing features. TextDynamic optionally integrates spell check (with "while you write" technology) and PDF export. You can also use it to convert documents, such as RTF (Rich Text Format) to HTML or RTF to PDF. Optionally it is also possible to convert text pages into a multi-page monochrome TIFF file.

TextDynamic includes a managed .NET wrapper DLL (its C# source is included with the full version). So you can use the component in WinForm applications developed with .NET development tools, such as VisualStudio 2008. At no extra charge we also include an ActiveX edition to use TextDynamic in VC, Visual Basic 6, and MS Access. Furthermore, you can use TextDynamic in C++ Projects without any wrapper. You only need to call an easy to use method in the engine DLL and you get a fully functional editing window.

Our product wRTF2PDF TextDynamic Server has a very similar programing interface as TextDynamic. So you can choose between an end user editing control and a server specialized control, but always using similar code.

TextDynamic as easy to integrate editing plugin

TextDynamic can also be used in a "popup editor mode". Here you only have to call one method from the DLL to create an editor window. It will include a toolbar, ruler and even a secondary editor window for the display of thumbnails. This editor window can be displayed on your form. You do not need any COM to do this, just load the DLL dynamically. This makes it very easy to upgrade legacy applications significantly and provide your customers with high end word processing capabilities right in your application.

PDF View, Print and Manipulation Components

WPViewPDF - view and print PDF (VCL, .NET, ActiveX)

WPViewPDF is a powerful pdf viewer component to display and print PDF files. You will need a PDF viewing component if you want to embed PDF display into your application or if you need to load PDF data from memory. For example you can use our viewer WPViewPDF to display digital copies of files which were printed by your application.

Ideally You can use our tools (wPDF, TextDynamic, wPDFControl) to create the PDF data to be displayed, but WPViewPDF will also work with many other PDF creators.
With the WPViewPDF PLUS license You can also merge and split PDF files, and print text and images on certain pages (akn PDF stamping).

With WPViewPDF PLUS it is also possible to fill PDF forms interactively: The user can edit the text fields and click the checkboxes.

WPViewPDF V3 is available sice several months. It is based on a completely re-designed logic. It makes use of clever and effective caching for quick response times. It also makes use of multithreading for better user interaction.

You can download the Demo and evaluation components here: (PDFViewDemo.exe - 5MB)

WPViewPDF includes support for Delphi XE2, XE3, XE4, XE5 32 and 64 bit. It now also includes support for 64bit .NET aplications.

 
::WPViewPDF::  ::WPViewPDF PLUS:: 
Display a PDF files embedded in Your Application
Add other PDF files to the viewer to display as one document
Print PDF Files from the viewer or using the DLL function pdfPrint()
Convert certain Pages in a PDF to Bitmaps (JPEG, PNG)
Add images or overlay metafiles which are displayed and printed
Delete pages to hide them in display (with PLUS License You can save the changes to a new PDF ile)

wRTF2PDF / TextDynamic Server

wRTF2PDF / TextDynamic Server

Create and modify documents under program control (.NET, ASP, ActiveX, DLL)

With TextDynamic we market a powerful word processing and RTF reporting tool. Similar possibilities are available in wRTF2PDF/TextDynamic Server, only this control is optimized to be a non visual server control. You can use its powerful API to create and modify documents, save as RTF or HTML and of course PDF. You can license both tools as a bundle. (View the online version of the TextDynamic Manual...)

wRTF2PDF/TextDynamic Server used to be an addon to wPDFControl - and as such has the complete featureset and programming interface of wPDFControl. The RTF to PDF conversion can be initiated whether using the new COM based TextDynamic interfaces or the "old" commands which are also compatible to legacy applications and do not require COM.

The new PDFControl V4 and RTF2PDF V4 is available now. The new PDF Engine supports Type3 font embedding to reduce PDF file size and better support for asian fonts.
Most importantly, 64bit and unicode versions of the engine DLLs are now available.
Demo download: http://www.wpcubed.com/ftp/pdfcontroldemo.exe

 
::What to do with wRTF2PDF / TextDynamic Server::  ::Options:: 
Create text in code (The control is based upon a very efficient integrated word processing engine)
Update fields (mail merge) or insert images into documents
Convert HTML or RTF to PDF
Create documents under ASP or ASP.NET (demo ...)
Convert metafiles to PDF

PDF creation directly from Your Application?

Modern applications are expected to produce digital copies of their print outs, either for archive purposes or sending as e-mails attachments. There are several free PDF printer drivers available, so why not take one of those to create the PDF files? Because the printer drivers require separate installation, are often much slower than an embedded solution and it is difficult to control their output. With our tools you can select the encryption, font embedding directly from your application. You can create PDF/A files, when exporting from our word processing engine (WPTools, TextDynamic) even including PDF tagging for better accessibility of the PDF files.

PDF Creation Tools

wPDF4

PDF Creator VCL (Delphi, C++Builder)
The VCL product wPDF 4 was one of the first to offer a drawing surface (TCanvas) to create PDF files using standard GDI methods. This feature has been made possible by a comprehensive and carefully designed metafile (EMF) to PDF conversion engine. The vector drawing and text will not be converted to a bitmap but will be preserved in PDF format. This avoids quality loss when PDF files are printed and reduces the size of the files as well. The technology used by wPDF works so well that the company Combit GmbH has decided to use it in their reporting product List & Label which is successful worldwide. wPDF comes with interface units to export directly from ReportBuilder, RAVE, QuickReport, ACE, FastReport and WPTools.

.NET, ActiveX (VS2010, VB6, VC ...)
The product wPDFControl implements our reliable wPDF technology to be used with Win32 .NET applications. An OCX is included for use in Visual Basic programs. Since the engine DLL can be accessed using the provided C++ header files you can also use it in VC applications without the need to import an ActiveX interface.
wPDFControl V3 supports encrpytion, compression and font embedding. You can use it to convert metafiles (EMF) to PDF or use its device handle (HDC) with standard GDI API calls.
