wxPdfDocument 0.6 released

Post by utelle » Fri Nov 25, 2005 10:32 pm

Finally version 0.6 of wxPdfDocument is completed; a file release is now available for download. The file release comes in two flavors: a .zip file for wxMSW and a .tar.gz file for wxGTK. Build support for wxGTK is still experimental. Feedback is welcome.

The new version has several enhancements:
  • Added features: color gradients, geometric transformations, barcodes, new graphics elements (marker, arrow);
  • Additional samples for new features plus simple charting example;
  • MakeFont utility (preparing fonts for embedding);
  • Changed API of graphics primitives: line style and fill color parameters deleted, line style and fill color have to be set using SetLineStyle and SetFillColor;
  • Bug in Write method fixed, WriteCell method added;
  • Updated API documentation.
Have fun! :)

Regards,

Ulrich

Great work.

A slight bug in src/pdfbarcode.cpp:299, replace this:

Code: Select all

    _T("$H"), _T("$I"), _T("$J"), _T("

I was wondering whether there's a label example like with fpdf? I'd like to make a program that creates mailing labels for Avery labels.

Thanks.

Thank you for finding this subtle bug. Corrected now in CVS and in file release 0.6.1.

Regards,

Ulrich

I remember you asked this already shortly before I released the first version of wxPdfDocument in September. Well, a few hours ago I would have answered "Sorry, there's no label example I know of." But you are lucky - in the meantime I have converted the FPDF PHP script PDF_Label of Laurent Passebecq to wxPdfDocument. At least for Laurent's example I get the same result. :)

I'll add the label example to the wxPdfDocument samples in the next release, but that may take a while. If you can't wait until the code has found its way into the wxPdfDocument file release. Send me a private message with your mail address and I send you the code.

Regards,

Ulrich

Update: Label printing example is now available in wxCode CVS.

Wonderful news! Laurent's script is the one that I was using with my PHP code. It makes a really nice label maker.

Thanks for the hard work.
