Use this method to export the current document as PDF, XPS,
PostScript, HTML, DOCX, WebGL or SWF.
To export as XPS, PostScript, DOCX or HTML you need to specify a
file path with an appropriate extension - ".xps", ".ps", ".docx",
".htm", ".html" or ".swf". If the file extension is unrecognized
then the default PDF format will be used.
When saving to a Stream the format can be indicated using a
property such as ".htm" or ".xps". For HTML you must provide a
sensible value for the Doc.SaveOptions.Folder
property. For XPS streams must be both readable and writable -
FileAccess.ReadWrite and not simply FileAccess.Write.
ABCpdf operates an intelligent just-in-time object loading
scheme which ensures that only those objects that are required are
loaded into memory. This means that if you are modifying large
documents then server load will be kept to a minimum. The original
PDF document must be available for as long as the Doc object is being used.
As a result you cannot modify or overwrite a PDF file while it
is read into a Doc object. You will
need to save your PDF to another location and then swap the two
files around after the Doc object's
use of the PDF is ended (with a call to Clear, Dispose, or Read with
another PDF file).
If you need to obtain a PDF as raw data you can use the GetData function.
The Refactor setting
determines whether new/modified redundant objects are eliminated
when the document is saved. You can use SetInfo to change the setting.
Versions. ABCpdf automatically determines the version
depending on the features you use. If you use features from only
the 1.1 specification it will write a 1.1 PDF. If you use 1.3
features it will write a 1.3 PDF. If you use 1.4 features it will
write a 1.4 PDF. Ditto 1.5 and 1.6.
If you're using a PDF template or drawing from another PDF the
final output will be the minimum version used in these templates.
In many real world applications this will be the factor which
determines the version in the final output produced by ABCpdf.
There is no advantage in producing a 1.6 document if you're not
using features from the 1.6 feature set. To do this will simply
stop users of older versions of Acrobat from accessing a document
which should be available to them.
When saving to SWF, if the Doc.SaveOptions.Template
is null, the current page is exported with Rect as the bounds of the Flash
movie using Doc.SaveOptions.TemplateData.MeasureDpiX
if specified. Otherwise, Doc.SaveOptions.Template
specifies the path to a SWF file. The saved SWF file starts with
the template SWF files, and a frame is added for each page in the
document. The script added is in ActionScript 2. If the template's
version is Flash Player 7 or lower, the saved file's version will
be Flash Player 8. For information on the interaction between the
added frames and the script from the template, please refer to the
example Flash file. Images are output in JPEG if (1) they are in
DeviceGray or DeviceRGB and already in JPEG (without any other
compression on top), or (2) they are not in the indexed color space
and both the width and the height are at least 8 pixels. For (1),
the original JPEG data is used so you can control the quality by
pre-compressing the images; for (2), the output will use 80%
