DynamicPDF Generator for COM/ActiveX (v4) Forum

 Oct 29 2009 10:03 AM
Hi. I have an old style VB.asp web site and need to convert a dynamic HTML page to PDF on demand. Is this something DynamicPDF Generator can do please?

The page to convert uses basic CSS (font, color and align) and has an HTML table. I don't want to programatically create the page again as shown in some of the demo scripts on this site. It would be great if the COM object could simply take a URL and return a PDF that can be output directly to the browser.

Thanks in advance of a reply or any further suggestions.

Hello Gary,

It is not possible to convert HTML pages into PDF documents using the Generator product.

You can do this by using the Converter product. But this is available for .NET. You can convert HTML and some other file formats into PDF documents. Please feel free to download the DynamicPDF Converter for .NET Beta from our website.

Thanks for the quick reply. The Converter product looks interesting but we're not allowed to run an installer on the server and $1500 is $500 over our budget. :-(

We cannot sell the product for $500 less. You can contact our Sales department for specific pricing information.

Also we can do manual installation on the server which will not require you to run the installer.
