To open a PDF document.
# open document from the filesystem doc = PDFDoc.new(filename) # optionally read a PDF document from a stream file = MappedFile(filename) doc_stream = PDFDoc.new(file) # or pass-in a memory buffer file_sz = file.FileSize() file_reader = FilterReader.new(file) mem = file_reader.Read(file_sz) doc_mem = PDFDoc.new(mem, file_sz)
Read & write a PDF file from/to memory buffer
Full source code which illustrates how to read/write a PDF document from/to memory buffer. This is useful for applications that work with dynamic PDF documents that don't need to be saved/read from a disk.
The PDFDoc constructor creates a PDF document from scratch:
doc = PDFDoc.new()
A newly-created document does not yet contain any pages. See the accessing pages section for details on creating new pages and working with existing pages.
Using PDFTron SDK, you can open a document from a serialized file, from a memory buffer, or from a Filter stream.
To open an existing PDF document from a file, specify its file path in the PDFDoc constructor:
doc = PDFDoc.new(filename)
Here's how to open an existing PDF document from a memory buffer:
file = MappedFile(filename) file_sz = file.FileSize() file_reader = FilterReader.new(file) mem = file_reader.Read(file_sz) doc = PDFDoc.new(mem, file_sz)
It's also easy to open a PDF document from a MemoryFilter or a custom Filter such as HTTPFilter.
After creating a PDFDoc object, it's good practice to call
InitSecurityHandler() on it. If the document is encrypted, calling the method will decrypt it. If the document is not encrypted, calling the method is harmless.
doc = PDFDoc.new(filename) if !doc.InitSecurityHandler() puts "Document authentication error..." return end
