I am working on a project in VB.Net that requires me to save Forms and Panel setups as PDF files.
Doing some research I found that there is no internal way in VB.Net to do this, and after setting up and testing CutePDF Writer with a
PrinterDialog setup as an alternative, found that it is not good enough to meet the needs required for the project.
As such I am looking for external tools for me to use to meet these goals. I need to be able to do the following:
- Take the elements on a Windows Form or Panel and save them to a PDF file
- The file needs to be able to be saved programmatically, no need for dialog boxes to confirm file names or locations
- I need to be able to essentially set up my project so that I can be looking at my Form or Panel, click save, and just wait for a small message box that I can program in as save confirmation.
Thanks for anyone who has suggestions. I am currently looking myself, but thought I'd check and see what other people have been using and having success with. I am also in a position to spend money to purchase licenses, so I am not just looking for free tool suggestions :)
