Virtual Printer SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer technology can capture printer output from any application that can print. Developers can create applications and services in .NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ to process print jobs received by LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer technology. LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer Drivers provide the output as EMF, which supplies substantial flexibility and enables print jobs captured by the LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer to be converted to document formats such as PDF, DOCX, and text, as well as more than 150 image formats such as SVG and TIFF.

  • Extend Existing Applications with the LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer SDK

    A common problem that faces many developers is extending existing applications when changing the underlying source code is not a possibility. As needs and systems change, there has to be a mechanism to add new functionality and maintain efficient workflows for end-users. The LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer SDK is one of several solutions LEADTOOLS provides to overcome this problem.

  • End-to-End eDiscovery with LEADTOOLS Document Imaging

    When it comes to change, the desire for efficiency is surely at or near the top of the list of reasons. Some processes and industries are harder to change, especially those that have been around for a long time. Court systems in many countries are one of the oldest and most well established processes to ensure all-around fairness, even if it must sacrifice expediency. Thankfully, the legal industry has taken major strides towards adapting to the digital age with the evolution of eDiscovery and document imaging.
