PDF Tool Kit Samples

Below is a list of samples included in the Toolkit. All the samples listed below are also available in the cookbook in PDF format.


  1. The sample applications may need updating to reflect installation location of the PDF Toolkit before they can be built and used.
  2. The solutions provided are all created using Visual Studio 2008 and conversion to Visual Studio 2010 is handled automatically by that IDE. Conversion to Visual Studio 2005 is also possible, in this case you must ensure that version 3.5 of the .NET Framework is installed on your system then simply copy the classes/forms into a new project and add the missing references.
