Designing your Own Document Viewer

Designing your own document viewer is the most flexible document customization solution. Implementing such an approach will allow you to customize all aspects of document viewer including how document pages are shown, scaled, positioned, etc., the view and functionality of the scrollbars, the toolbar appearance and functionality and so on.

Designing your Own Document Viewer for Flash documents

Designing a viewer for Flash documents requires Flash and ActionScript programming and designing skills as document viewers are just regular Flash movies. You may design document viewers using Macromedia Flash Professional, Adobe Flash CS Professional or Adobe Flex software.

The details of document viewer design depend on the output format you use. As Print2Flash supports three output formats, there are three possible kinds of viewers. Refer to the links below for help topics containing guidelines on design of a custom viewer for each format:

The active document generation mode is controlled by the Flash Document Format field in the Flash Output tab of Document Options window. Programmatically it can be controlled using OutputFormat property of Profile object if using Print2Flash OLE Automation API or with OutputFormat option if using Enhanced Batch Processing.

Designing your Own Document Viewer for HTML5 documents

Designing a viewer for HTML5 documents requires HTML and JavaScript programming and design skills as document viewers are just regular HTML pages with linked page image SVG files. Refer to Designing Custom Viewer for HTML5 Documents help topic for further information.
