Toolkit is the Swiss Army Knife for PDF - virtually
any PDF manipulation task can be automated through Toolkit's
robust API. With activePDF Toolkit you can:
watermarks and stamp images and text into PDF documents.
multiple PDF documents into a single PDF file, adding bookmarks
for easy navigation.
PDF forms with database data and generate form fields on the
PDF tampering through Toolkit's fingerprint technology.
over 20 standard barcode types without requiring third-party
utilities or individual barcode fonts.
dynamic headers, footers and page numbering to PDF documents.
over 40 image types to PDF on the fly and embed Flash®
sign PDF files and secure documents through PDF encryption.
activePDF Toolkit is a scalable programmable
COM object that enables users to create and manipulate Portable
Document Format (PDF) files. With Toolkit's robust API, the
automation of virtually any PDF manipulation task becomes
possible ? users can append, stamp, stitch, merge, paint,
form-fill and more. Digitally signing PDF documents, adding
watermarks, embedding Flash® images, creating form fields,
incorporating headers and footers, extracting and concatenating
pages and comments, and many other tasks are all simplified
with activePDF Toolkit.
Dynamic PDF Form Creation and
activePDF Toolkit allows you to generate form fields on the
fly, enabling you to create forms dynamically while offering
precise control in laying out database reports using custom
PDF templates. Additionally, Toolkit's form-filling feature
allows PDF form fields to be dynamically populated with data
from any source, including XML, while enabling end users to
save filled-in forms locally. activePDF Toolkit also enables
users to populate form fields with images, making exact placement
and resizing of images a simple task. Toolkit's form-flattening
feature removes the bloat from larger forms ? fields are stripped
out and the content is left behind, dramatically reducing
On-the-Fly PDF Generation
activePDF Toolkit's TextToPDF method enables you to quickly
convert data from your application into a portable, secure
PDF document. Using a few SQL queries, you can generate complicated
reports that can be distributed to enterprise users, or populate
prepared PDF templates to create labels, business cards, mass
mailings and more.
Extracting and Merging
activePDF Toolkit allows users to combine, or merge, two or
more PDF files. As an example, this feature could be used
to combine multiple PDF reports into a single, navigable PDF
file for the end-user. activePDF Toolkit also allows the user
to append and extract pages to and from virtually any PDF,
even in memory. Additionally, activePDF Toolkit includes options
for retaining bookmarks, making it the product of choice for
assembling large, complex PDF documents.
Stamping Text and Images
Support business rules by stamping text into your PDF documents,
using any font available on your server, at any size or color,
in any degree of rotation. activePDF Toolkit's text width
calculation routines make text placement exact, allowing you
to automatically apply standard text such as page numbers,
headers and footers, or watermarks to a single page, range
of pages or entire documents.
Toolkit Professional includes comprehensive
image stamping with native support for over 40 image types,
allowing for precise placement of logos, images, or electronically
represented signatures. For example, watermarking can be used
to automatically stamp highly sensitive documents with a ?Confidential?
label, while a signature stamp can be applied to approved
documents as they pass through a workflow milestone.
activePDF Toolkit's stitching technology allows you to import
one or more PDF documents, combining them into a single PDF
page. Previously labor-intensive applications, such as newsletters
or classified advertisements, are streamlined with this feature.
Digital Signatures and PDF Security
Digital signatures employ powerful encryption technology and
a public key infrastructure to provide document authentication
and nonrepudiation. activePDF Toolkit enables you to dynamically
apply digital signatures to your PDF documents using certificates
stored on your server. With Toolkit, you can also create certificates
on the fly, allowing you to easily extend signing capabilities
to every user interacting with your organization. Additionally,
activePDF Toolkit allows you to encrypt and decrypt files
with a simple API call. The first server-based product to
support native 40 and 128 bit encryption, Toolkit enables
you to password protect PDF files, disable end-user printing,
prevent copying of text and graphics, and more. Toolkit's
unique fingerprint technology also allows you to verify document
integrity, providing built-in support for enforcing business
Toolkit's Barcode object enables you to generate over 20 standard
barcode types without requiring third-party utilities or individual
barcode fonts. Barcodes can be added to new or existing PDFs,
or exported as XML, affording you the flexibility to easily
integrate with your existing business processes. Toolkit's
barcoding technology conforms to standard barcoding guidelines,
while still enabling you to customize the output to suit your
organization's needs. You control everything; from type, value,
and placement to size, rotation, comment text and color. Generating
and placing a numeric, alphanumeric, or 2-D barcode has never
