@TerryHough,

I think the library is coded with PB ver. 3.94 .

In the moment, there is no lib for PB4, but you can use the include by Flype:

just to inform that PurePDF 2.05 for PB4.01 is available.

all the stuff can be downloaded here, on the ABBKlaus homepage.
http://www.purebasicpower.de/?PDFBarcode

and a question to the author(s) :

is possible to add this procedure to the PDFMisc userlibrary ?

Code: Select all

Procedure pdf_IncludeFileJS(FileName.s)
  
  Protected file.l, source.s
  
  file = ReadFile(#PB_Any, FileName)
  
  If file
    source = Space(Lof(file))
    If ReadData(file, @source, Lof(file))
      pdf_IncludeJS(source)
    EndIf
    CloseFile(file)
  EndIf
  
EndProcedure

hello, another question

is it possible to generate a PDF document and then print it directly on the default printer without opening the Acrobat Reader interface ?

Hi Flype,

uploaded the new version (version stays at V2.05) ->PurePDF V2.05<-

new command :
pdf_IncludeFileJS(FileName.s)
is it possible to generate a PDF document and then print it directly on the default printer without opening the Acrobat Reader interface ?
i would say no :cry: cannot find anything suitable for PurePDF so it can stay multiplatform :arrow:
i tried with Acrobat Reader but the window stays open when finished printing a PDF file. And Freak´s method http://www.purebasic.fr/english/viewtopic.php?t=9927 isn´t working with PDF´s :? (not Freak´s fault its Adobe :evil: )

But when you find anything i will add it.

Regards Klaus

ok, thank you for the answer - and the update.

so, at the moment, i include this very big javascript snippet :

Code: Select all

print(true);
but this one open the document in Acrobat Reader, once loaded it open the print dialog. 2 mouse clicks saved. but, well, that's not what i'm really looking for.

maybe i should use your PrinterLib which seems to be very useful.
does your PrinterLib supports antialiased texts and drawings ?

There is no need to mention it in the helpfile :wink: (btw i don´t have the source file of the help [@Luke can you send?])
Just use the old syntax :

Code: Select all

pdf_SetFont("Tahoma","",12)
there is only one thing left to say :oops:
when there is no matching font for the style found (for 'Tahoma' this is italic) the default font is used (in this case 'Tahoma' Regular)
*B.TTF = Bold Font
*BD.TTF = Bold Italic Font
*I.TTF = Italic Font
