Setup Visual Basic and Visual Studio with the ActiveX edition of Foxit Quick PDF Library
In order to use the ActiveX edition of Foxit Quick PDF Library you first need to register it on your machine. To register it simply type the following into the command line (Start > Run > CMD):
regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Debenu\PDF Library\ActiveX\DebenuPDFLibraryAX0916.dll"
If necessary, update the path to the ActiveX edition of the PDF library. Once you’ve received confirmation via a message box that the registration was successfully, you may proceed.
Now that you’ve registered the ActiveX edition of Foxit Quick PDF Library, open Visual Studio with a new or exist solution and add the COM reference for the library by selecting:
Project > Add Reference > COM > Foxit Quick PDF Library 9.14
That’s all the setting up you need to do — you’re ready to start coding. Here’s a short example of how to initiate the library object and perform some basic operations.
Public Class Form1 Private Sub btnHelloWorld_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnHelloWorld.Click Dim ClassName Dim LicenseKey ClassName = "DebenuPDFLibraryAX0916.PDFLibrary" LicenseKey = "..." //'Insert your trial or commercial license key here Dim DPL Dim Result DPL = CreateObject(ClassName) Result = DPL.UnlockKey(LicenseKey) If Result = 1 Then DPL.SetOrigin(1) DPL.DrawText(100, 100, "Hello Visual Basic! This text has been drawn using the DrawText function.") DPL.SaveToFile("Hello_World.pdf") Else MsgBox("- Invalid license key -") End If DPL = Nothing End Sub End Class
