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.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.8 Released

Red Software is excited to announce version 3.8 of RAD PDF, the web ready PDF viewer, form filler, and editor for ASP.NET. This build includes support for RTF (Right To Left) and bidirectional (Bidi) text, allowing Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu, and other languages to be more easily used when editing PDF files. The new bidi text mode can be toggled using the PdfDocument.BidiTextMode property (use PdfBidiTextMode.None to revert to RAD PDF's previous behavior).

This version includes support for user fonts as implemented on Windows 10 "Redstone 5" (Version 1809 or higher). This allows fonts installed specifically for a web user to be used.

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.
