Hello Adobe Team
We are interested in a project, creating PDF Portfolio document from Memory Stream (Images saved in SQL Database in System. Bytes format) . Currently we are using Visual Studio 2017 (Vb.Net desktop) and wanted your advice on compatibility.
If it is possible, is there any technical support for the functionality.
Hoping to hear soon from you.
Are you looking for a server solution, to run on the server where the SQL database is?
Or an interactive tool, to run as an add on for Acrobat Pro where the user is logged in?
Or something else?
System.Bytes is not an image format, it is an array of bytes. You need to know the actual image format used before any conversion can be considered.
Hi Test Screen Name,
Thank you for the quick reply.
In response to your questions below:
“Are you looking for a server solution, to run on the server where the SQL database is?"
We are looking for solution to integrate in our VB.Net (desktop) application.
"System.Bytes is not an image format, it is an array of bytes. You need to know the actual image format used before any conversion can be considered."
Our project in VB.Net converts the System.Bytes to a bitmap which is then converted to .JPEG by the code. But, if PDF Portfolio can handle/convert the Sytem.Bytes to any image format to be exported to PDF, it will be much preferred.
The requirement is that we export this converted image to PDF (PDF Portfolio).
Hope that answers your questions. Please let me know if you have any further queries regarding the same.
System.Bytes is not an image format as I have said. If your VB.Net runtime has a converter to bitmap format, this is a private format and API and you would either need to convert the byte values yourself or convert to a known image format or to PDF.
Hi Test Screen Name,
Thank you very much for the reply.
As you mentioned, could you advise on how we could achieve this with Adobe Acrobat Pro? We are licensed for this product.
I have downloaded the SDK and associated documentation, but there was not anything there specific to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, which is the platform we are developing on. Are you able to provide any more information or assist with this?
