    SaveDocumentToPDF_2 Method (GdViewer)
    In This Topic
    Saves the document displayed in the GdViewer control to a file in PDF format on a distant server using HTTP or FTP transfer according to what you have specified. The file transfer will be run synchronously. The document is saved with full GdPicture/XMP annotation support.

    Please consider using the GdViewer.BurnAnnotationsToPage method before saving, if you expect, that your annotations will be included in the document content, for example for printing or to disable their editing.

    The GdViewer.DataReceived event is raised to allow you to monitor the transferred data. Likewise, the GdViewer.TransferEnded event is raised right after the transfer will finish. You can also control displaying the progress bar by enabling or disabling the GdViewer.EnabledProgressBar property.

    The GdViewer.SavingProgress event is raised after each successfully saved page, when processing the image-based documents, in other words if you are saving the multi-page TIFF file to PDF document.

    public:
    GdPictureStatus SaveDocumentToPDF_2( 
       String^ Uri,
       String^ Login,
       String^ Password
    ) 

    Parameters

    Uri
    The full URI path with the full document name, where the resulting PDF document will be saved, for example ftp://ftp.gdpicture.com/upload/myfile.pdf or http://www.gdpicture.com/upload/myfile.pdf.
    Login
    The login required to authenticate on the server. It can be an empty string.
    Password
    The password required to authenticate on the server. It can be an empty string.

    Return Value

    A member of the GdPictureStatus enumeration. If the method has been successfully followed, then the return value is GdPictureStatus.OK. We strongly recommend always checking this status first.

    Use the GdViewer.GetLastTransferError method to diagnose the error if this method has failed with one of the GdPictureStatus.Internet... errors.

    Remarks

    Just to remind you that if you want to permanently incorporate the annotations to be part of the document content, you need to use the GdViewer.BurnAnnotationsToPage method before saving the document.

    Both the GdViewer.DataReceived event and the GdViewer.TransferEnded event are raised to allow you to monitor the transfer progress.

    Likewise, the GdViewer.SavingProgress event is raised, when processing the image-based documents using this method.
