Export to PDF

Post by Kirayagami » Fri Aug 03, 2018 2:15 pm

Hi there,
I am a new member, I have read from TRichView website, there are 2 third party component listed, llPDFLib and GNostice. and I have a question, that's:
1. May I know can both of them convert full content from RV to PDF? Inlcude image, header. footer, footnote etc
2. GNostice support from Delphi 2007 onwards, while I am using Delphi 2006 for my project, can I build gNostice in dll using newer delphi, and used by my project? If can, what kind of file I need to save from my project so that the dll can load and export to PDF? metafile? RVF?
3. Which one is better GNostice or llPDFLib, in terms compatibility to RVF content?
Thanks in advance!

I am afraid using eDocEngine inside PDF would too complicated, because the export requires using eDocEngine components, not just calling functions.

There is one more option, Synopse PDF Engine (SynPFD).
Examples for these 3 PDF libraries can be found in <TRichView Dir>\ThirdParty\Export\

All libraries can export TRichView content to PDF, including everything. Better or worse, I cannot tell, I did not use them in real-world applications myself, sorry.
Some problems may be caused by metafiles inside documents (there is a workaround by drawing metafiles as bitmaps)
