I'm afraid that converting RadFixedDocument to RadFlowDocument is still not genuinely supported. However, we just started working on the feature and it should be available for one of our next official releases.
In the meantime, in the released today Q3 2014 we introduced some helper classes that allow creation of fixed documents in flow manner. What this means is that you could enumerate the elements of a flow document and using RadFixedDocumentEditor
create a fixed document based on the flow one.
As to creating images from the document, RadPdfViewer
exposes functionality that can help you in this task. You can use the control to import a PDF file and create images from the pages through the API of the ThumbnailFactory
PdfFormatProvider provider =
RadFixedDocument document = provider.Import();
ThumbnailFactory factory =
RadFixedPage page = document.Pages;
ImageSource source = factory.CreateThumbnail(page, page.Size);
Image image =
image.Source = source;
Window window =
window.Content = image;
I hope this is useful.
