Debenu Quick PDF Library 10.13 released along with updated rendering engine and new PDF Viewer Control

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first phase of Debenu Labs. We kicked Debenu Labs off with two exciting new projects which have long been sought after by our customers.

The new rendering and printing engine is now distributed as part of Debenu Quick PDF Library 10.13 and the new PDF viewer control, officially known as Debenu PDF Viewer SDK, is now available as a commercial add-on to Debenu Quick PDF Library.

You can expect lots more improvements to the rendering and printing engine as well as the viewer control over the coming months.

Of course we’ve got other exciting projects coming up as well, so stay tuned and as always send us your feedback!

Debenu PDF Viewer SDK Beta 2: An ActiveX Control for Displaying PDF Files

We’re really excited to announce the second beta release of Debenu PDF Viewer SDK, a new visual PDF viewer ActiveX control, which will be sold as an add-on to Debenu Quick PDF Library 10.

Debenu PDF Viewer SDK will be provided as an ActiveX control which can be used to quickly add PDF viewing capabilities to Windows applications. While users of Debenu Quick PDF Library have always been able to construct their own PDF viewers using the rendering functions, we’ve had many requests for a more simpler solution that could be quickly added to an application in minutes and due to popular demand, we’ve decided to do it.

For now the PDF viewer control contains simple zooming, page scrolling and page flipping features. It will of course be enhanced further with each beta release based on the feedback that you give us and the desire you express for certain features.

Steps

  1. First step is to download the Debenu PDF Viewer SDK Beta 2 installer.
  2. Installer the files to desired location (default is Program Files).
  3. The ActiveX will automatically register (regsvr32) during the installation process.
  4. By default the files are installed to this location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Debenu\PDF Viewer Control
  5. There will be three binaries in the folder: DPVActiveX.ocx (the ActiveX control), DebenuPDFRendererDLL1013.dll (the rendering engine), DebenuPDFLibraryDLL1013.dll (the core PDF library).
  6. In the Samples folder there is a Delphi and Visual C# sample.
  7. Copy the DebenuPDFRendererDLL1013.dll and DebenuPDFLibraryDLL1013.dll so that they are in the same folder as the generated executable in Release or Debug folders or update the LibraryPath property of the ActiveX control to point to the correct location.

Note: if you do not specify the LibraryPath or copy the DLLs to the same folder as the executable then the DPVActiveX Component will be unable to find Debenu Quick PDF Library and no PDF files will be displayed.

Feedback

We want your feedback. In order to help us prioritize in which order features are added we need to hear fro you as to which features you want! So please, leave a comment with your feedback and lets start the conversation.
