Create, import and export PDF documents with PdfProcessing for ASP.NET MVC. The API offers two editing methods—one enabling you to edit the PDF as a flow document and one allowing you great control over native PDF elements. The document model is entirely independent from UI and allows you to generate sleek documents with differently formatted text, images, shapes and more.Documentation of the Telerik PdfProcessing Library
The Telerik PdfProcessing library for MVC is designed to offer exceptional performance—it decodes images only when necessary, compresses the content with FlateDecode encryption to reduce its size and embeds font subsets by including only the most utilized glyphs.
To insert content in a way that flows on the pages of the otherwise fixed PDF format, use the PdfProcessing blocks, tables and lists.
Create, add or remove a page in a PDF document. Change the page size, orientation and more of its properties.
Decode images on demand for higher performance. The API allows you to obtain the encoded image data without compromising the image quality when saving the document.

Clipping helps you define the bounding outline of content elements like images and paths to determine what portion of the element is displayed in a PDF document.
To optimize the size of a PDF, leverage Form XObjects. They enable you to bundle elements like text, images, vectors and more within a PDF file and reuse the content throughout the document.
Empower your users to edit the PDF document. Simply insert textboxes, radio-buttons, listboxes and other interactive controls available in Telerik ASP.NET MVC PdfProcessing library. Once the users fill the required data, you can also flatten the forms. The form field flattening feature removes all fields but preserves their content in the document to disallow further modifications.

Bookmarks are shortcuts within a PDF document that allow users to quickly navigate to a particular page or section of the file. Bookmarks can be easily named and organized a hierarchical structure to create a Table of Contents.
You can associate an object with a page location inside the PDF document to provide users with ways to interact. The Telerik ASP.NET MVC PdfProcessing library comes with link and widget annotations. Link annotations enable you to link an object to a destination elsewhere in the document or to a URL action to be performed. Widget annotations enable you to customize the style of and manage user interactions within the interactive form fields of the PDF document.
Destinations allow you to set navigation locations within the same PDF or across multiple PDFs by associating them with outline items, annotations or actions. A destination will specify the document view when the outline is open or an action is performed. You can leverage a named destination to reuse a location without affecting the path when pages are added to or removed from the document.
The Telerik PdfProcessing library for MVC comes with a powerful API that enables you to define different types of color spaces, such as ARGB colors, color patterns and sophisticated color gradients. You can customize the color of various objects in a PDF document, including geometries and text.
