Last year I announced that we had created a new PDF API and made it available via the CodeExchange in the Synergy/DE Resource Center. Now I am pleased to announce that we have made some enhancements to the original API, namely by adding the ability to:
- View existing PDF documents (Windows only).
- Print existing PDF documents (Windows only).
- Draw circles.
- Draw pie charts.
- Draw bar charts (with a single or multiple data series).
Here’s an example of a pie chart that was drawn with the new API:
Here’s an example of a bar chart:
And here’s an example of a multi-series bar chart:
It’s early days for the support of charts, and I plan to make several additional enhancements as time permits, but I wanted to make the work that has been done so far out into the wild, and hopefully get some feedback to help me decide what else needs to be done.
If you’re interested in learning how to use the PDF API then I’ll be presenting a session that will teach you all about it at our up-coming DevPartner conference in May. So if you haven’t already done so, head on over to http://conference.synergex.com to reserve your spot at the conference now.
