I needed to extract from PDF files the underlying text for my DocuMagic software ( and found a fantastic DLL from Sorax software. You can download a working demo version of the DLL an the complete documentation from Sorax's site. Among other things, the DLL can display PDF files and can be called by Harbour.
BTW, still I did not implement the viewer, only the text extractor. I think it would be of great interest for all to share your experience, if you go that way. Give it a try, it's a nice piece of software, and it's cheap (ah... I forgot to say that it's not for free...).

Good day
I want to thank you once again for the excellent work.
I would like to ask if you could add a function, "close after printing". I don't know if there would be a return value problem?
Setting could be Setting-Options

In Sumatra PDF it's a feature
-exit-when-done: Used in combination with -print-dialog (and -stress-test). SumatraPDF Exits after the Print Dialogue has been dismissed and the document printed.

Thank you in advance for your time.

It seems to me that it can not be done in a simple way.
SumatraPDF.exe does not signal the end of the printing process.

Also, the command line option "-exit-when-done" is not useful.
For example:

Code: Select all

SumatraPDF.exe -print-dialog -exit-when-done My.pdf
does not show the contents of My.pdf file.

Thank you for your response
I thought that when the print progress is displayed, the process can be terminated after printing is complete

Regards, Georg
