RTF2PDF Command IDs

[Top]  [Chapter]  [Previous]  [Next]

The internal RTF engine is controlled by the function ExecComand() with the command numbers listed here.


The ActiveX wraps this function as methods as ExecCommand, ExecIntCommand and ExecStrCommand.

Normally you will use ExecStrCommand() since this method lets you specify a string as a parameter.


C example code to create a PDF engine, load a file and print it to PDF.


pdf=wpdfInitializeEx(&Info);                       // Initialize the PDF Engine

if(wpdfBeginDoc(pdf,"C:\\aTestPDF.pdf",0))           // Create PDF File


    wpdfExecCommand(pdf,1000,0,"",0);             // Initialize the RTF engine

    wpdfExecCommand(pdf,1002,0,"C:\\test.RTF",0); // Load a RTF file

    wpdfExecCommand(pdf,1100,0,"",0);             // Export this RTF file to PDF





You can use the header file wPDF.H and wpdf_class.h for convenient binding.


Tip: Please also see: Commands to print text (to printer, not PDF!)


Example VB.NET Code to convert a RTF file to PDF:

      If PDF.StartEngine(DLLNAME.Text, "", "", 0) Then ' you your license info here !

          If PDF.BeginDoc(PDFNAME.Text, 0) > 0 Then ' Start a PDF document

               PDF.ExecIntCommand(1000, 0) ' Initialize the RTF engine

          PDF.ExecIntCommand(1024, 1) ' use the printer as reference (suggested)

               PDF.ExecStrCommand(1002, RTFNAME.Text) ' Load a RTF file

               PDF.ExecIntCommand(1100, 0) ' Export this RTF file to PDF

               PDF.EndDoc() ' Close the PDF document

          End If

      End If


Example VBS Code to convert RTF to PDF: uses the ActiveX)

Set PDF =  CreateObject("wPDF_X01.PDFControl")

PDF.INFO_Date = Now

PDF.INFO_Author = "Julian Ziersch"

PDF.INFO_Subject = "Test file"

' ... set other properties        


PDF.StartEngine "c:\wPDFControl\DLL\wRTF2PDF01.dll", "LIC_NAME", "LIC_KEY" ,0 ' License Info!

PDF.BeginDoc "Test.PDF", 0

PDF.ExecIntCommand 1000, 0
