Remarks

The options set in the LtdDocumentOptions class will be used when the user saves a document using the DocumentFormat.Ltd format.

The LEADTOOLS Temporary Document (LTD) format is a proprietary that support appending pages to an existing file, therefore, you can use the LTD format if you have large amount of pages to convert over multiple sessions. When calling the DocumentWriter.BeginDocument method with the DocumentFormat.Ltd format, the toolkit will check if the output file specified exists on disk. If it does, the new pages will be appended to the end of the file. When you are finished adding all the pages, you can use the DocumentWriter.Convert method to convert this temporary file to the desired output format such as PDF, HTML or DOC.

To change the options used with the LTD format, perform the following steps:

  1. Use the DocumentWriter.GetOptions method of the DocumentWriter object being used. Passing DocumentFormat.Ltd to the format parameter. Note that the resulting object from the base DocumentOptions class needs to be cast to LtdDocumentOptions.
  2. Use the various LtdDocumentOptions properties to change the options.
  3. Use DocumentWriter.SetOptions to set the new options in the engine.
  4. Now call the DocumentWriter.BeginDocument method (with DocumentFormat.Ltd for the format parameter) to create a new document and add the pages.

Note that this format supports both DocumentWriter.AddPage and DocumentWriter.InsertPage.

Currently, the LtdDocumentOptions class contains no extra options.

Example

This example will create a new LEADTOOLS Temporary Document (LTD) over multiple sessions then convert the result to a PDF file.
