by Robbie W Mon, July 16 2012, 1:12 PM (US Eastern Time)

The 7.0.1 update of DynamicPDF Core Suite for .NET (Generator, Merger and ReportWriter) has now been released on our website (download it here).  This update addresses a few bug fixes, enhancements and depreciated items but the functionality that takes center stage here is the new encryption algorithms that have been added.  Version 7.0.1 has added support for AES 128-bit and 256-bit encryption algorithms as well as crypt filters.  We will elaborate on these new encryption features in a future post but for now, take a look at the Help Library's page:

More detailed information regarding v7.0.1 can be found here:

Generating PDFs Dynamically on Android

by Ganesh R Fri, June 15 2012, 11:35 AM (US Eastern Time)

I have been using an Android phone for a few years now, and one day I decided I should try to write an Android application using our DynamicPDF Generator for Java. So I decided to start off with a simple "Hello World" application based on the DynamicPDF Generator hello world PDF java example provided with the Generator product.

My goal was to create a PDF on the Android phone when the application was run. I wanted to keep it simple and not even bother with having a GUI for it at this point.

I already had my machine set up with Eclipse IDE, the ADT (Android Developers Tool) plugin and the Android SDK. Here are the steps I followed to create the Android application:

  1. I created a new Android project in Eclipse with the details below. Android version 2.1 is what I tested with, since that is the lowest SDK version I had installed, but it may work with an older version of Android too.

    Project name: HelloWorld
    Build Target: Android 2.1
    Application name: Hello World
    Package name: com.cete.androidexamples.dynamicpdf.helloworld
    Create Activity: DynamicPDFHelloWorld
    Minimum SDK: 7

  2. Since I knew my application had to write to the SD card to output the PDF, I added the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission in the AndroidManifest.xml:
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
  3. More...
