Ann: PDF Preview
« on: January 28, 2016, 01:46:07 pm »
I created little project which can help you integrate PDF preview feature in your applications.
Project is written for Win32, Win64, Linux32, Linux64 and it use libmupf library (version 1.8), bgracontrols and printers4lazarus components.
It contain all necessary dll's  and libs and it contain instructions how to compile dll's and libs for different platforms and how to setup Cross Compiling environment
Project use cross compiling benefits of fpc compiler.
Along with preview it can also print pdf documents.
 
Project location is

@aradeonas

pl_bgracontrols seems to be a control from package of Code Typhon (Pilot Logik)?

Yes, pl_bgracontrols are package from CodeTyphon project, but project should work with and newer version of BGRAControls you can find (if you use lazarus).

I forgot to mention. Checkout PDFPreview.pdf which is attached into project source. You can find many explanations (how and why) about what I did in source code.

Perfect example why sometimes we don't need to reinvent the wheel :D (read: pdf rendering is complex)

In 2022, PDFPreview does compile in Win32 and Win64, but it does not work! The executable starts but nothing happens. In Linux Ubuntu it does not compile at all (error in libfreetype).
Dinmil, can help me, please? I would like to use your libmupdf18-64.dll in my science software.

Thanks a lot, paweld! Simply great your example on using pdfium.dll, which I didn't know.  Do you know some library in Linux that we can use in Lazarus?
