eDocEngine VCL is a comprehensive e-document creation component suite for Delphi and C++Builder. eDocEngine can create documents in clipboard, PDF, RTF, HTML, XHTML, EXCEL, TEXT, CSV, Quattro Pro, LOTUS 1-2-3, DIF, SYLK, TIFF, PNG, SVG (XML-based vector graphics), JPEG, GIF, BMP, EMF and WMF formats. eDocEngine ships with ready-to-use Report-Export interfaces that tightly integrate with popular Delphi reporting tools such as ReportBuilder, FastReport, Rave, QuickReport, and ACE Reporter. Using eDocEngine Report-Export interfaces, you can directly export reports to PDF and other formats without having to write any code.
Gnostice PDFtoolkit is a comprehensive and versatile PDF component suite for Delphi and C++Builder. PDFtoolkit VCL components come with hundreds of functions and properties that put immense power in the hands of the developer. PDFtoolkit hides the complexity of the PDF format and allows developers to easily create applications that can edit, enhance, secure, merge, split, view, digitally sign, and print PDF documents and process PDF forms. PDFtoolkit can extract text, export to images, and also add digital signatures. PDFtoolkit does not require PDF software such as Adobe PDF library, Adobe Acrobat Professional, Adobe PDF Reader or GhostScript.
XtremePDFConverter VCL is a powerful VCL component for intelligently converting PDF to easily editable Word RTF documents. XtremePDFConverter uses artificial intelligence and also allows inputs from the user code to accurately recognize and convert paragraphs, tables, bullets, numbered lists, newspaper columns, and other standard document formatting features. XtremePDFConverter outputs Word RTF documents that are well-formatted and easily editable. Unlike Word documents, PDF documents usually do not contain enough information about the logical organization of text and other data. What looks like a paragraph to us humans may only be internally represented as multiple strands of text or characters on a 2-D Cartesian plane. XtremePDFConverter parses PDF page elements, tests them against certain criteria, decides whether those page elements could represent a paragraph or a table or a list or something else, and then applies appropriate conversion rules. The resultant document is much more usable and editable than the input PDF document.
Gnostice XtremeDocumentStudio Delphi is the next-generation multi-format document-processing component suite for Delphi/C++Builder developers. Currently, it includes VCL components for viewing, printing, and converting PDF, DOCX, BMP, JPEG, PNG, WMF, EMF, and single-page and multi-page TIFF. It also has report-export components for ACE Reporter, FastReport, QuickReport and ReportBuilder components that can export to PDF, PDF/A, XLSX, RTF, HTML, XHTML, TXT, SVG, PNG, JPEG and GIF formats. PDF/A support includes compliance with PDF/A 1b, 2b, and 3b versions. PDF/A-3b support complies with ZUGFeRD electronic invoicing standard. In future, creation and editing support will be added. Apart from VCL, XtremeDocumentStudio also includes FireMonkey support. Its FireMonkey document viewer can display PDF and images on Windows, Mac, iOS [PREVIEW] and Android platforms with varying levels of support. With the optional StarDocs integration, full support is available on all these platforms. XtremeDocumentStudio Delphi is written in 100% Object Pascal. It can process all supported formats without requiring external software such as Microsoft Word, Open XML SDK, Adobe PDF library or GhostScript.
All Gnostice Delphi/C++Builder developer tools including XtremeDocumentStudio Delphi are available in the highly-discounted XtremeDevSystem Delphi Subscription bouquet.
