This property gets or sets the value indicating where a PDF document should be written (in memory or elsewhere).

Syntax

VARIANT_BOOL GenerateInMemoryFile { get; set; }
Value
VARIANT_TRUE if the document is generated in memory without saving on disk. VARIANT_FALSE otherwise.

Remarks

If the GenerateInMemoryFile property equals VARIANT_TRUE, the library generates an in-memory file that can be read through the OutputByteStream property. Use the BinaryImage property for stream writing a PDF, for example, writing directly to the browser.

To get the size of the file created in memory, you can use the MemoryFileSize property. To use this property in the full version of the library, you must have an additional Web License.

Equivalent in new interface: None. If you need an in-memory buffer, call IPDFDocument4::GetBuffer or IPDFDocument4::GetBufferAsBSTR.

Example

Generate a PDF File in Memory

Delphi
[copy to clipboard]
{ PDF object is supposed to be created }
PDF.StartEngine('demo', 'demo');
PDF.GenerateInMemoryFile := true;
PDF.BeginDoc;
{ some operations here... }
PDF.EndDoc;
{ Now we have PDF file in memory.                           }
{ Use PDF.BinaryImage or PDF.OutputByteStream to access it. }
C/C++
[copy to clipboard]
// PDF object is supposed to be created
PDF->StartEngine("demo", "demo");
PDF->GenerateInMemoryFile = TRUE;
PDF->BeginDoc();
// some operations here...
PDF->EndDoc();
// Now we have PDF file in memory.
// Use PDF.BinaryImage or PDF.OutputByteStream to access it.
C#
[copy to clipboard]
// PDF object is supposed to be created
PDF.StartEngine("demo", "demo");
PDF.GenerateInMemoryFile = true;
PDF.BeginDoc();
// some operations here...
PDF.EndDoc();
// Now we have PDF file in memory.
// Use PDF.BinaryImage or PDF.OutputByteStream to access it.
Visual Basic
[copy to clipboard]
' PDF object is supposed to be created
PDF.StartEngine("demo", "demo")
PDF.GenerateInMemoryFile = True
PDF.BeginDoc
' some operations here...
PDF.EndDoc
' Now we have PDF file in memory.
' Use PDF.BinaryImage or PDF.OutputByteStream to access it.
