RAD PDF 3.10.5 Service Update

Today, Red Software announces RAD PDF version 3.10.5, the newest update to the most feature-filled PDF reader, editor, form filler, form creator, and all purpose PDF GUI for ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core!

Improvements to the ASP.NET Core nuget package make for easier x86 and x64 deployments and development.

This update also includes a number of minor documentation clarifications, rendering improvements, and bug fixes.

This release is available free of charge to all RAD PDF licensees with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.10 Released

Today, Red Software releases version 3.10 of RAD PDF, the ASP.NET and now ASP.NET Core PDF reader, editor, form filler, signature tool, and more. This version includes sample code for using RAD PDF with ASP.NET Core (as well as a reference to the new nuget package). The new ASP.NET Core version can be used with both standard RAD PDF documents (PdfWebControl) and Lite Documents (PdfWebControlLite) with little to no changes.

When using ASP.NET Core, the new RadPdfCoreMiddleware replaces the PdfHttpHandler, making configuration, even with a custom PdfIntegrationProvider, very straightforward. The RAD PDF System Service still requires the full .NET Framework, but this can be configured on a seperate machine or the control can be run using RenderAtClient.

This update also includes a number of minor feature updates and bug fixes.

This release (and the ASP.NET Core nuget) is available free of charge to all RAD PDF licensees with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF BETA for ASP.NET Core

Red Software is excited to share a new BETA version of RAD PDF for use with ASP.NET Core!

ASP.NET Core is the new open-source web framework from Microsoft. While similar to ASP.NET, request processing is handled much differently. This new assembly is largely similar to the standard RAD PDF build with a few key differences:

  • The PdfHttpHandler and web.config have been replaced with RadPdfCoreMiddleware - a single line of code in your Startup class configures and installs the needed listeners
  • When using a custom session provider, AddSession() implementations need two parameters instead of one -  update your code to use AddSession(HttpContext context, PdfLiteSession session)
  • When using a custom session provider, GetSession() implementations need two parameters instead of one - update your code to use GetSession(HttpContext context, string key)

This initial BETA release is compatible with ASP.NET Core 2.0 and higher.

To request a link to the BETA, please contact support:

Use of this assembly is included with a standard RAD PDF license and is subject to the EULA.

RAD PDF 3.9.5 Service Update

Today, Red Software releases version 3.9.5, a service update to its PDF reader, editor, form filler, signature tool, and more for ASP.NET web applications, RAD PDF. This distribution primarily focuses on fixes and smaller improvements to RAD PDF. This build further improves the PdfSignatureShape object (demonstrated here), particularly when using the popup GUI. Additionally, PdfLinkAnnotation objects can also now link to destinations using non-HTTP protocols (e.g. mailto: or tel:).

To simplify integrations with RAD PDF, the Document object is now accessible from the PdfIntegrationProvider's OnDocumentSaved method. This allows implementations to easily analyze user changes and the output PDF at the same time, simplifying tasks like post-processing the output PDF. Objects can now selectively be output to PDF or printed, allowing for objects to appear on screen, but not in outputs (or vice versa).

This update also has documentation improvements and other fixes.

This release is available free of charge to all RAD PDF licensees with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.9 Released

Red Software is pleased to announce version 3.9 of the ASP.NET GUI for PDF editing, PDF form filling, PDF form design, PDF signing, PDF viewing, and more, RAD PDF. This version features a number of improvements and bug fixes for a PdfSignatureShape with a popup. With this upgrade, the signature process can be further customized (button text can be set per object) and creates a better customer experience (e.g. input selection for signature popups is now clearer).

Additionally, this version makes it possible to be notified of HttpHandler exceptions and customize logging behavior on a per notification basis. Use a PdfIntegrationProvider to listen for exceptions by overriding the OnHttpHandlerException method.

This update also includes a number of bug fixes and other improvements.

This release is available free of charge to all RAD PDF licensees with an active Maintenance Plan.
