storeOffline(onComplete, onProgress)

[XOD Document only] Downloads the document for offline viewing.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
onComplete function The function that's called when the document has finished being downloaded or the download has been cancelled
onProgress function The function that's called on each update in progress of the download. The fraction downloaded is passed as a parameter. (eg 50% downloaded passes 0.5)

trigger(type [, data])

Calls the handlers of the event name with given data
Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
type string | number event name of which the handlers will be called.
data * <optional>
data that will be passed to the handlers. If data is an array, it will be spread and then passed to the handlers
Inherited From:
Returns:
Returns the object that 'trigger' is being called on
Type
object
Example
annotManager.trigger('annotationChanged');
annotManager.trigger('annotationChanged', [[annotation], 'add', {}]);

unloadCanvasResources(id)

Unloads resources for the page associated with the loadCanvasAsync call corresponding to the passed in id. So if the loadCanvasAsync call had requested page 2 then page 2's resources will be cleaned up (as long as nothing else requires those resources). Note that the canvas element itself is not touched.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
id number The id returned from the loadCanvasAsync call that will have it's page resources unloaded

unloadResources()

Cleans up the resources associated with the document.

updateRasterizerOptions(options)

Update rasterizer options of the document
Parameters:
Name Type Description
options Object Options for this function
Properties
Name Type Argument Default Description
pageTransparent boolean <optional>
false Page background transparency.
overprintMode number <optional>
Core.OverprintPreviewMode.PDFX_ON Enable or disable support for overprint and overprint simulation.
antiAliasing boolean <optional>
true Enable or disable anti-aliasing.
pathHinting boolean <optional>
true Enable or disable path hinting.
thinLinePixelGridFit boolean <optional>
false If true (horizontal/vertical) thin lines will be snapped to integer pixel positions.
thinLineStrokeAdjust boolean <optional>
true Enable or disable auto stroke adjustment.
imageSmoothing boolean <optional>
true Enable or disable image smoothing.
hqImageResampling boolean <optional>
false Whether use a higher quality (but slower) smoothing algorithm.
caching boolean <optional>
true Enables or disables caching. Caching can improve the rendering performance in cases where the same page will be drawn multiple times.
expGamma number <optional>
-1.0 The gamma factor used for anti-aliased rendering. It is the exponent value of gamma function. Typical values are in the range from 0.1 to 3.
colorPostProcessMode number <optional>
Core.ColorPostProcessMode.NONE Set the color post processing transformation. This transform is applied to the rasterized bitmap as the final step in the rasterization process, and is applied directly to the resulting bitmap (disregarding any color space information). Note that this option has no effect when using Core.OverprintPreviewMode.SEPARATION_RENDER.
renderAnnots boolean <optional>
false Enable or disable annotation and forms rendering (In the viewer, annotation rendering is done separately).
highlightFields boolean <optional>
false Enable or disable highlighting form fields. This option only has an effect when renderAnnots is true.
isPrinting boolean <optional>
false Tells the rasterizer to render the page 'print' mode. Certain page elements (such as annotations or OCG-s) are meant to be visible either on the screen or on the printed paper but not both. A common example, is the "Submit" button on electronic forms.
Returns:
returns true if document can update rasterizer options
Type
boolean
