pdfToolbox Automation Just reporting? Ha! David van Driessche CTO - Four Pees

Agenda • Using template reports in Desktop and Server/CLI • Architecture • Changing look and feel • And more interesting things

Template Report (v7) • New report format introduced in pdfToolbox v7

Template Report (v7) • New report format introduced in pdfToolbox v7

In Desktop • Run a profile on a PDF file • Create report and: • Select “Custom” report • Select the report you want • (Use “Browse” to see the report template folders available)

In Server / CLI • pdfToolbox Server use • Select template report type in report type menu • pdfToolbox CLI use • ./pdfToolbox 


Architecture • Based on HTML to PDF conversion • Based on an HTML template using CSS and JavaScript • Default report fully adjustable by adjusting the built-in template • Imports data from preflight to be used in the report • Using a manifest XML file that specifies what you want

Template Structure • Template folder • index.html • manifest.xml • img (folder) • scripts (folder) • fonts (folder) • css (folder) Main HTML file to convert Instructions for pdfToolbox Images used by the HTML - partly dynamically generated by pdfToolbox Javascripts for use in the HTML - partly dynamically generated by pdfToolbox Fonts and css files for use in the HTML


But I want more info! • Manifest.xml • Can be used to instruct pdfToolbox to include information for use in the report template… but… • What information do you want? • Differs from case to case • You don’t want to include _everything_

XML Reports • XML reports have an excruciating amount of detail about the file, preflight profile and preflight results • Why not use that? • Eureka!

How? Manifest instructs XML report generation pdfToolbox preflights, then generates XML in specific location Template JavaScript gets information from XML report Template HTML uses JavaScript to embed information from XML report


Thanks! Questions? David van Driessche, CTO, Four Pees david.van.driessche@fourpees.com
