Amyuni 5.0.0.7 and Unicode characters

Post by aroncox » Tue Apr 01 2014

Windows 7 64-bit and 32-bit
Amyuni PDF Suite Developer 5.0.0.7

I can't seem to get Unicode characters to display in my Amyuni created PDF. They display okay if I use something like CutePDF. I have these settings:

iole_amyuni_app.FileNameOptionsEx = idec_NoPrompt + idec_UseFileName + idec_MultiLingualSupport + idec_Embedfonts (1 + 2 + 128 + 16)

If I open the PDF it sometimes is blank where the text should be, or has round circles (I think it depends on the font the text is in, either Arial or Microsoft Sans Serif).

If I look at the font properties in Adobe Acrobat it shows MicrosoftSansSerif is embedded with an encoding of Ansi (I wonder if this is the problem?). I am creating and viewing the PDF on the same PC so the fonts should exists and they are display correctly in the application that is doing the PDF conversion.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Ahah, in getting an email ready to send to you I found the solution. It appears there are two places to set the settings for printing a report to PDF: SetDocFileProps and FileNameOptionsEx. I was setting the correct options in FileNameOptionsEx but NOT in SetDocFileProps. (I ws calling SetDocFileProps then FileNameOptionsEx, so it looks like FileNameOptionsEx isn't doing anything?). Now I've got them both the same it's working. Sorry for the trouble.

Can anyone explain if there is any difference between these two settings? If I should use both or should use one over the other?

Thank you.

Hello,

Glad to read that you were able to narrow down the source of your issue. In reference to your questions, you can use either “SetDocFileProps” or “FileNameOptionsEx” but not both at the same time.

The SetDocFileProps method can be used in multi-threading situations to avoid conflicts between multiple applications or multiple threads requesting simultaneous access the Converter products. The CDIntf library uses the registry to interact with the printer drivers. This can cause conflicts when multiple applications use CDIntf to access the printer drivers.

The links below points to our online documentation that explains this in greater detail.
