WPViewPDF V4 – view, edit and print PDF (VCL, .NET, ActiveX)
WPViewPDF V4 offers:
- All new action system. This allows it to create a GUI efficiently and quick. We added a new sample project for Delphi and VisualStudio.
- new ActionMode: pan, select objects, draw etc.
- add PDF annotations to a PDF file. Supported are at present:
* highlight annotation
* text background (the used can select text and the annotation will cover the area)
* square annotation
* symbols with Popups (PLUS only)
* squiggly underline annotation
* text field annotations (PLUS only)
* checkboxes (PLUS only)
- move any existing annotation
- delete any existing annotation
- add fields to create a PDF form
- create draw objects on a “document layer”. The document layer survives reloading a PDF file. This makes it possible to apply the same draw objects to various PDF files. With WPViewPDF PLUS it is possible to save the objects to XML and load as XML.
- trigger mail merge events on marked text draw objects.
- convert PDF into watermark: The user can select a PDF file and use certain PDF pages as background for the current PDF files. It is possible to reuse the same page on multiple pages.
- extract file attachments
- search text and apply highlight annotation automatically
- “Flatten” PDF Forms – you can load PDF forms which contain annotations and save them into new PDF files with the annotation “appearance streams” permanently applied to the PDF pages.
WPViewPDF can be used in Delphi (C++Builder) as VCL (32 and 64 bit), in VB6 as ActiveX and in .NET as WinForm assembly.
Also a fast JBIG2 conversion module is included.
