I have a problem adding emoji characters.

<% @Language="VBScript" CODEPAGE="65001" %>
<!-- METADATA TYPE="typelib" UUID="{DF9225FE-94A4-490D-8CAD-E8366CE621D3}"-->
Response.expires = -1
Response.charset = "utf-8"

Dim MyDocument, MyPage
Dim MyStrText
' Create Document object and set properties
Set MyDocument = Server.CreateObject( "DynamicPDF.Document" )
OpenSansEmoji = MyDocument.AddFont( "D:\font\OpenSansEmoji.ttf", true, true )
EmojiSymbolsRegular = MyDocument.AddFont( "D:\font\EmojiSymbols-Regular.ttf", true, true )
Symbola = MyDocument.AddFont( "D:\font\Symbola.ttf", true, true )

'MyDocument.Creator = "HelloWorld.asp"
'MyDocument.Author = "ceTe Software"
'MyDocument.Title = "Hello World"
' Add a page to the document
Set MyPage = MyDocument.AddPage()
' Add a textarea to the page
MyStrText = "😳😄❤👍" & vbCrLf & "emoji font test"

Dim MyLabel
Set MyLabel = MyPage.AddLabel(MyStrText, 0, 0, 504, 54)
MyLabel.Align = DPDF_TextAlign_Center
'MyLabel.Font = DPDF_Font_Helvetica
'MyLabel.Font = OpenSansEmoji
MyLabel.Font = EmojiSymbolsRegular
'MyLabel.Font = Symbola
'MyLabel.Font = DPDF_Font_Symbol

MyLabel.FontSize = 18
' Output the Document to the Browser
' Object cleanup
Set MyPage = Nothing
Set MyDocument = Nothing

Thanks for sending all the details to We looked into the font file and the PDF document you sent. The symbols which you are trying to add to the PDF uses glyph data from the GSUB tables of the font (Advanced OTF table) and currently the DynamicPDF API does not supports GSUB and GPOS tables.

We have already added this feature to our feature request list for consideration for a future version. We will post an update once the new version with this feature is available for download.
