The PDF Creator Pilot library is a true helping hand for developers who wish to create and manipulate PDF documents in their own applications. It does not require any kind of third-party libraries, setup or applications to create, edit, open, or even merge PDF files. It only requires you to include a specific DLL file in your application, and all its PDF-related features would become part of your creation.
This tool heavily relies on the widely used ActiveX technology. One can use any library from various programming languages, ranging from Python to C#, C++, VB .Net, ASP .Net, PHP, Delphi and many others. While this tool allows you to generate PDF documents at server level, it will also allow you to use a virtual device context while drawing the PDF page. It can add a thumbnail to the PDF, along with stylish watermarks at any specified location, if needed. Though it normally uses TrueType fonts, it equally supports various other character sets, such as Greek, Russian, Baltic, CAKE, and Turkish. This tool also allows you to change the opacity level or the blend mode for various text strings and graphics, along with the possibility to create and use annotations. It supports the most widely used image formats, like JPEG, TIFF, GIF, BMP and PNG.
