Features & Highlights

  • Easy to Use API

    The C1Pdf library is easy to use. You can create a PDF file with just a few lines of code. The commands provided for adding content are similar to the ones available in the .NET graphics class. You can create multi-page documents that contain any combination of text, images, lines, shapes, bookmarks, hyperlinks, attachments and more.

  • Fast Rendering and Compression of Images

    Draw, scale and position images in your documents with one line of code. You can render any regular .NET Image object, including metafiles. Plus, C1Pdf allows multiple levels of compression giving options for high quality and small file size. Metafiles are parsed and converted into vector graphics commands and thus retain the best possible resolution. If you want to add charts or technical drawings to your document, metafiles are better than bitmap images.

  • Bookmarks and Hyperlinks

    With C1Pdf, you can build an outline structure by adding bookmarks to your documents. The outline tree makes it easy to browse through a document's structure and find specific topics. C1Pdf also provides methods for adding hyperlinks and hyperlink targets to your documents. You can even create local links, that when clicked take the user to another location within the same PDF document, such as a table of contents.

  • Export Your UI

    Export your Windows UI "as-is" directly to PDF with selectable text and images. This feature handles most common UI elements in the visual tree, and is preferable if your UI is mostly text. Or you can simply export the UI to PDF using bitmaps.

  • Security and Permissions

    If your PDF documents contain sensitive information, you can encrypt them so that only authorized users can access it. There is a separate password for the owner of the document and for all other users. The user's access can be selectively restricted to allow only certain operations, such as viewing, copying, printing, or editing the document.
