VeryPDF WebAPI is a Best PDF Cloud API Platform for Web and Mobile Developers

Secure cloud-based PDF processing using VeryPDF PDF technologies

http://www.verypdf.com/online/cloud-api/index.html

VeryPDF WebAPI is a powerful, secure web services API that exposes a broad set of PDF functionality to web and mobile application developers. Built upon proven Adobe technology and using a RESTful architecture, the PDF WebAPI enables software engineers to develop connected applications.

Process and Manipulate PDF Documents and Forms

Examples include:

  • Electronic document management (EDM) vendors can "stamp" pages of sensitive PDF documents with date/time and user information in the header and footer when PDFs are exported from the content management system, for audit purposes
  • ERP and CRM applications that export reports in PDF format can rasterize the first page to JPG or PNG, providing a more visually pleasing thumbnail or "cover page image" to users
  • Mortgage and credit applications – any PDF form-based application – can be "prefilled" programmatically with data from a database, quickly creating thousands of individual PDF documents

Benefits of Web-based Applications

Many companies are migrating from on-premises deployments to web-based applications, to take advantage of:

  • reduced infrastructure costs
  • increased uptime
  • less focus on maintaining hardware, applying patches, etc.
  • easy access to broad range of functionality available via web services

In addition, mobile app developers are relying on web services to do the "heavy lifting" by offloading resource intensive, battery-draining tasks from the client side in order to optimize the user experience on lighter-weight handheld devices.

The VeryPDF WebAPI integrates easily into existing web applications, and since the technology is built upon proven Adobe technology, compatibility and interoperability with Acrobat and Reader are virtually guaranteed.

PDF WebAPI Requests

Here are a few of the API requests currently available in the VeryPDF WebAPI:

Sun Watermark PDF Document and Stamp PDF Document

image

The Watermark/Stamp request type adds headers and footers, watermarks, and backgrounds to an input PDF document. The watermark can be a graphic image placed on a page, or text, or both. The background can be a single color or a graphic image. You can control the size of the watermark or background, and how it is placed on the page, whether or not an image used is transparent, and whether the watermark appears on top of the content on each page or rests behind that content. The background can only rest behind the content on a PDF page, and you cannot use text for a background. The content for the headers and footers, watermarks, or backgrounds, are drawn from an input file or set of input files that you provide. You can use either the XML or JSON file format to provide the input information for your Watermark/Stamp request.

Add headers/footers and watermarks to your own PDF files using our online demo of PDF WebAPI.

Sun Flatten PDF Forms

Form flattening removes dynamic form elements from a PDF form document and transfers them to the PDF page content stream, making them permanent parts of the PDF document. For example, the fields on a PDF form are converted into content fixed on the page. Radio buttons or dropdown menus are removed. Digital signature fields are reduced to the name of the person who signed the document and related information, such as the date and time stamp.

Sun Render PDF Pages

image

The RenderPages request type converts selected pages of PDF documents into raster graphic image file pages (such as TIFF). The service uses technology provided by the Adobe PDF Library and the VeryPDF PDF2IMG utility to process these requests. When reducing an image size, such as to produce a thumbnail, bicubic resampling is used to optimize image quality. RenderPages can return more than one page from a PDF document as a single multi-page TIFF file.

How to monitor a folder and convert incoming PCL files to PDF files automatically?

Dear all,

we are evaluating your software to be used within our company. We would need to convert around 15000 documents per day from PCL to pdf.

Some questions could not be answered with your online user manual, so please kindly advice about the following questions.

Can verypdf constantly check a folder for new files to be converted automatically?

can the target destination be specified within a command line for every file. As we are working with around 30 branches and every branch is using the same filenames for their documents, we need an option that verypdf saves the converted files to different specified folders. Otherwise its impossible to find out what is what.

Can a converted file be printed out automatically after conversion, and if yes can the printer be pre selected / specified within the command line/file for every single file?

hope to hear from you soon..

best regards
Customer

>>Can verypdf constantly check a folder for new files to be converted automatically?

As we are working with around 30 branches and every branch is using the same filenames for their documents, we need an option that verypdf saves the converted files to different specified folders. Otherwise its impossible to find out what is what.

Above two functions can be achieved easily.

You can put following lines into a .bat file, e.g., you can put them into D:\pcl2pdf.bat file,

=========================================
REM @ECHO OFF
:retry
for %%F in (D:\input\*.pcl) do (
"C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7\pcltool.exe" "%%F" "D:\output\%%~nF.pdf"
move "%%F" "%%F.bak"
)
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 > nul
goto retry

=========================================

This .bat file will monitor "D:\input" folder, once a PCL file appear, it will call "C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7\pcltool.exe" to convert this PCL file to PDF file, and put output PDF file to "D:\output" folder, this .bat file will check "D:\input" folder every five seconds, you can change input folder, output folder and checking time easily in this .bat file.

>>Can a converted file be printed out automatically after conversion, and if yes can the printer be pre selected / specified within the command line/file for every single file?

Yes, you can print the converted PDF file easily, you can use "PDFPrint Command Line" to print the PDF file, "PDFPrint Command Line" can be downloaded from following web page,

How to convert Interactive form in to static form before sending it to iPhone?

Hi

We have issue in opening interactive PDF form in iPhone.

Do you have any tool to convert Interactive form in to static form before sending it to iPhone?

Thanks
Customer
------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, our "VeryPDF PDF Toolbox Command Line for Windows" has this function, you can use "flatten" function in "VeryPDF PDF Toolbox Command Line for Windows" to convert dynamic forms to static PDF file,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdftoolbox/try-and-buy.html#buy
http://www.verypdf.com/dl.php?file=pdftoolbox_cmd_win.zip

Please look at following web pages for more information,

http://www.verypdf.com/wordpress/201302/how-to-flatten-fillable-pdffill-pdf-with-command-line-34649.html

http://www.verypdf.com/wordpress/201307/how-to-change-pdf-form-to-flatten-pdf-under-mac-system-37693.html

for example, you can use "-flattenform" option to convert dynamic PDF forms to static page contents,

pdftoolbox "sample_fillform.pdf" -outfile "_flattenform_out.pdf" -flattenform

pdftoolbox.exe "sample_fillform.pdf" -outfile "_flattenform_out.pdf" -flattenform

If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Question:

Why do I receive the error message below when I try to open specific PDF forms?

Please wait...

If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document.

You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader for Windows, Mac, or Linux by visiting get.adobe.com/reader.

For more assistance with Adobe Reader visit helpx.adobe.com/support.html

This happens when I try render these PDF files using Foxit Reader, Nitro Reader and numerous other PDF viewers. I can only open the PDF using the latest version of Adobe Reader.

Why?
------------------------------------------------------------------
Answer:

Certain PDF files (dynamic XFA forms) created in Adobe LiveCycle can only be opened in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat. When you try to open these files in an alternative PDF viewer, then you will see this error message.

Unfortunately, it's not easy remove this message and modify the PDF so that it can be opened in alternative PDF viewers. The person who created the original form must re-create the form using options that do not restrict which PDF viewers can open and display the file.

Adobe has made the decision that since very few non-Adobe products support these special PDF files, that it is better to show this message -- and require the user to download Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat -- than it is to let the PDF viewer try to render the document.

We strongly disagree with this decision that Adobe has made and will work to try to convince them to reverse this bad policy, which just causes needless confusion for users of PDF.

However, if you wish convert these Dynamic XFA forms to Static Page Contents in PDF file, you need open this PDF file in Adobe's LiveCycle Designer, save to a new PDF file with "Adobe Static PDF Form (*.pdf)" option, then you will get a new PDF file with static contents.

If you are using LiveCycle, you’ll need to save the final PDF as a static form compatible with Acrobat 7. pdf2img.exe doesn’t work with dynamic forms or PDFs from later versions of Acrobat.

Please look at a relative web page from following web page,

http://www.verypdf.com/wordpress/201503/pdf-to-image-converter-command-line-is-fail-to-convert-xfa-forms-to-image-file-41480.html
