Excerpt of article text...

In this article I explain how you can start using DynaPDF. What is DynaPDF? It's a Xojo plugin from Monkeybread Software that lets you dynamically create and manipulate PDFs via Xojo code.

With DynaPDF you get functionalities to create, edit, merge, analyze, or sign PDF files with Xojo. With DynaPDF you can, for example, write an invoice for your customer in which you integrate a barcode with payment information and attach the always-same terms and conditions to the PDF document. This invoice can also be converted to PDF-A for archiving purposes.

Choose Your License

If you want to use the classes of DynaPDF in Xojo you need a suitable license of DynaPDF and the MBS Xojo DynaPDF Plugin. There are four different licenses for DynaPDF. Which license you need depends upon which methods you plan to use.

For example, if you only want to insert links in a new PDF document, a Starter license is sufficient. If you also want to add a page to an existing PDF document, you need a Lite license. If you want to read images from existing PDF files or import single PDF pages from another PDF document, you need a Professional license.

With the additional PDF/A converter license, you get the ability to convert existing documents from PDF to PDF/A.
