Telerik PdfProcessing for WinForms is a document-processing library that enables your applications to easily generate, import and export PDF documents using C# and VB.NET. With support for .NET Framework, .NET Core and .NET Standard, its API contains two different editors. You can choose between editing in a flow-like manner with the RadFixedDocumentEditor or customizing the PDF document structure with the FixedContentEditor.
The Telerik PdfProcessing library for WinForms is built for outstanding performance with minimal memory footprint—it decodes images only when needed, compresses the content with FlateDecode encryption to reduce its size and embeds font subsets by including only the most utilized glyphs.
Telerik WinForms PdfProcessing enables you to easily insert content that flows between pages with the help of blocks, tables and lists.
Add, modify or delete a page in a PDF document. Set page properties, including page size, orientation and more.
Images are decoded on demand to maximize performance, without losing the encoded image data. The API also enables you to control the image quality when saving the document.
Describe and draw two-dimensional shapes, including lines, paths, Bezier curves, arcs, rectangles and more.
Control how content elements like images and paths are displayed in a PDF document by defining their bounding outline.
Describe and bundle multiple objects like text, images, vectors and more elements into a single object within a PDF document and reuse it as many times as you need. This promotes efficiency and optimal document size.
The digital signature feature enables you to sign and validate a PDF document in accordance with the best encryption standards. It allows users to approve forms, sign contracts and protect documents from being tampered with.
Through annotations, you can associate an object with a location inside the PDF document to provide users with an interactive point. The Telerik PdfProcessing library for WinForms offers two types of annotations—link and widget annotations. Link annotations enable you to link a destination elsewhere in the document or trigger an external URL action. Widget annotations enable you to define the visual appearance of and manage user interactions within the interactive form fields of the PDF document.
Use destinations to associate outline items, annotations or actions in a PDF document. The destination defines the document view when the outline is open or the action is performed. To reuse a destination without breaking or changing internal and external links, simply create a named destination.
Thanks to its powerful API capabilities, the WinForms PdfProcessing library enables you to define an ample variety of color spaces, including ARGB colors, color patterns and sophisticated color gradients, to customize the appearance of PDF objects, such as geometries, text and more.Documentation on Colors and Color Spaces support in RadPdfProcessing
