Updated PDF API

A few weeks ago I announced that a new API called SynPSG_PDF had been added to the code exchange. Today I am pleased to announce that the API has been updated and, in addition to Windows, is now also supported on systems running Linux (32-bit and 64-bit), OpenVMS (AXP and IA64) and Synergy .NET.

Also, as a direct result of recent customer feedback, I have added a mechanism that allows a PDF file to be easily created from an existing text file with just a few lines of code. This means that existing report programs that already produce plain text output can be easily modified to produce PDF output with a small amount of code like this:

If  you would like to check out the API you can download the code from https://resourcecenter.synergex.com/devres/code-exchange-details.aspx?id=245.

    Any chance that the PDF API will ever find its way into the product as a supported, documented API?

    You don’t want to know how we currently create PDFs from our Synergy-based main application. (-:

    Hi Derek. I don’t think that’s something that will happen because it sits on top of third-party open source libraries that would be difficult for us to support to the required standard if it were part of Synergy/DE.
