A PDF File Creation Library

PDFScribe is an ActiveX server that allows for easy creation of Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

This component allows you to treat each page of a PDF document as a painter's canvas. You "paint" or "draw" text and graphics onto the page. The graphics routines include the ability to draw lines, rectangles, and images. Templates allow the reproduction of a sequence of graphics routines on the same or multiple pages.

Along with drawing routines, you can use a formatted text box similar to Windows' Rich Text Control. This text box allows multiple fonts and styles to be applied to the text and allows different paragraph alignment, such as center, left and right justification.

Each page in the document may be sized to any dimensions. GedReporter uses this ability to create wall charts of family trees.

Just a few of the features found in PDFScribe:

  • Lines and rectangle drawing.
  • JPEG and BMP image support. (Others to be supported in the future.)
  • Graphics state manipulation. (Rotate, skew, translate, and scale.)
  • Any sized page.
  • Outline heirarchy (Bookmarks).
  • HyperLink regions.
  • TrueType font embedding.
  • Template reproduction.
  • Formatted Text Boxes.
