    We have a converter from rtf to pdf documents but we are not very pleased with that.

     

    Have anyone try to write pdf document from Plex? Is that even posible in Plex?  Do you use some other  poduct to do that - which?

     

    Thanks for answers!

    Hi Nada -

     

    We have used Crystal Reports http://www.crystalreports.com/   or

    Ireport iReport Designer | Jaspersoft Community 

     

    Also used Altova StyleVision   StyleVision – Visual Report and Form Designer  in some projects.

     

    Best regards

    adding to Lorenz suggestions, we used Birt (java variant context). A basic, raw solution, if you have an system i server variant, is to generate reports as DDS type, and then, in runtime, overriding to a pdf file (available since V6, it seems to me) into IFS.

    Hi Nada -

     

    I am not sure if you are trying to create a PDF from a CA Plex report, or if you mean PDF's in general. I will second using Crystal Reports, BIRT, Jaspar Reports as good options for as a replacement for Plex reports. CM WebClient for CA Plex has a Crystal Report integration where you can call a CR Report from CA Plex, passing parms, etc. and see the results in a browser view and then save to PDF, or also save the report to PDF directly.

     

    If you are looking at general programmatic conversion of source docs to PDF, I would also look at the Lead Tools SDK or the Cute PDF SDK. I am aware of CA Plex folks using these SDK's from Plex C++ apps successfully. They should work from C# as well.
