Why is my ColorSpace a string?
In older versions of ABCpdf the ColorSpace property was a
string. So you might find code of this form.
theDoc.Rendering.ColorSpace = "CMYK"
In Version 8 the ColorSpace property was changed to a true
enumeration. This is a safer way of coding as it allows the
compiler to ensure that the values you are using are valid. Your
new code should look like this.
The names of the items in the XRendering.ColorSpaceType
enumeration are the same as the values of the strings used in
previous versions. So changing your code should be a simple search
and replace operation.
Note that the enumeration is the XRendering.ColorSpace
indicating the output color space for rendering. There is a
different ColorSpace enumeration used for the content of objects
inside a PDF document. The two are not the same.
Alternatively if you need to convert between enumerations and
strings automatically you can do so. To convert from a string to an
enumeration use the following code.
XRendering.ColorSpaceType csType =
To convert from an enumeration to a string use the following
string csString = csType.ToString("G")
