Save as PDF using PDFlib

In PowerBuilder 2017, an alternative method is provided to directly print data to PDF without needing to install any third-party tool or driver or make any configuration. This method relies on a light-weight software called PDFlib which is automatically installed with PowerBuilder and distributed with the PowerBuilder application, at no additional cost by developer. And PDFlib is automatically packaged into the PowerBuilder application executable without requiring the developer to make any configuration or selection during the building process.

For how to use this method, refer to the section called “Export.PDF.Method” in DataWindow Reference and the section called “Saving as PDF using PDFlib” in Users Guide.

For more about the deployment notes on PDFLib, refer to the section called “Using the PDFlib generator” in Application Techniques.
