Function Reference
This section describes all supported functions of DynaPDF in detail. Most examples in this chapter
are written in C, C++, or Delphi. However, as you can see, the usage of DynaPDF is nearly identical
with all programming languages.
Abort (Rendering Engine)
void rasAbort(
IRAS* RasPtr) // Instance pointer of the rasterizer
This function provides a safe way to stop the function RenderPage() very quickly when it is running
in a separate thread. The function sets an internal abort flag so that the rendering engine can safely
terminate the current rendering process. The flag is automatically reset when the function
RenderPage() is called the next time.
LBOOL pdfActivateAltFontList(
const PPDF* IPDF,
// Instance pointer
SI32 Handle,
// -1 or a list handle -> CreateAltFontList()
LBOOL EnableSysFonts)
The function activates or deactivates an alternate font list that was created by CreateAltFontList().
An alternate font list represents a list of fallback fonts which are tested if one or more required
glyphs were not found in the current font.
If no compatible font was found in the list, then system fonts are tested if EnableSysFonts was set to
true. Although EnableSysFonts should be set to true in most cases, it is sometimes useful to disable
system fonts, e.g. to restrict the number of fonts which can be embedded.
In order to disable the current alternate font list set the parameter Handle to -1. The value of
EnableSysFonts is ignored this case. To fully deactivate font substitution disable system fonts with
SetUseSystemFonts() before calling a text function.
Please note that alternate font lists are used only, if complex text layout was enabled. This can be
done by setting the flag gfComplexText with SetGStateFlags().
Return values:
If the function succeeds the return value is 1. If the function fails the return value is 0.
