I need a solution to capture print data automatically and render printer jobs to PDF from a web application

Hi,

I am looking for a solution that automatically captures print data and save same as pdf to some location automatically. I tried one of your free trial version which suffices my requirement but conversion to pdf is manual.

May I please confirm if paid version readily comes with application that captures and converts to pdf or if it is just an sdk and development must be done after purchase?

Best Regards,
Customer

Thanks for your message, may I know what product are you using? we have more products which can capture the print data and save them to PDF files, such as docPrint Pro HookPrinter module, HookPrinter SDK, etc., in general, most of them can capture printer data and convert them to PDF files automatically, everything can be done at background and silently. But for the HookPrinter SDK product, you need write an application to integrate with the HookPrinter SDK, it's not difficulty if you are understand the development.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for reply.

Actually we are not using any product right now but we would like to purchase one of the product that automatically converts print jobs to pdf in background.

We are not looking for SDK but already build application that we can install and use directly.

Could you please suggest us if we should purchase docPrint Pro or HookPrinter module? And also provide us details regarding where to make purchase and if we get any support after purchase for installation.

Best Regards,
Customer
