DynaPDFMBS.SetUseImageInterpolation(Index as Integer, Value as Boolean) as Boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 17.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Enables or disables image interpolation explictely for a given image.
Notes:
If nothing was specified (this is the default), a viewer applications can only use a heuristic to determine whether image interpolation should be enabled or not. The result is then of course application specific.
The parameter Handle must be a valid image handle that was returned by a DynaPDF function like InsertImage(), InsertImageEx(), or InsertImageFromBuffer(), for example.

If the function succeeds the return value is true. If the function fails the return value is false.

DynaPDFMBS.SetUserUnit(value as single) as boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 11.3 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: The function sets the user unit of the current open page.
Notes:
A user unit acts like a scaling factor. The page format and all page coordinates are multiplied with this factor in a viewer application. The default size of a PDF unit is 1/72 inch. User units can be useful if the page format would be too large to be expressed in standard PDF units. The largest page format in PDF is limited to 14400 units or 200 inches. This limit can be extended with the user unit.
The largest value that is supported is 75.0 which results in a maximum page format of 15,000 x 15,000 inches or 1,800,000 units. Note that all functions which return page coordinates or page properties do not consider the user unit.
The page format must still be in the range 3..14400 units. It is also strongly recommended to set the user unit only if necessary. This is only the case if the required page format is larger 14400 units.
Default value = 1.0

Return values:
If the function succeeds the return value is true. If the function fails the return value is false.

DynaPDFMBS.SetUseSwapFile(SwapContents as Boolean, SwapLimit as Integer) as Boolean
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 8.0 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: When creating large PDF files with many or large images it is sometimes recommended to page out large objects to a temp file to restrict the memory usage.
Example:
dim pdf as DynaPDFMBS // your DynaPDF object

// define a swap file in case memory is low
dim b as Boolean=pdf.SetUseSwapFile(False, 256*1024*1024)
if b=False then
MsgBox "Failed to create swap file."
Return
end if

DynaPDFMBS.ShowDifferences(PageIndex1 as Integer, OtherPDF as DynaPDFMBS, PageIndex2 as Integer, CheckMoving as boolean, HighlightColor as UInt32 = &hFFFF, ScaleFactor as Integer = 1, ColorTolerance as Integer = 3, debug as boolean = false) as Integer
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method DynaPDF MBS DynaPDF Plugin 15.3 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: Shows differences on two PDF pages by adding highlight annotations.
Notes:
Please pass page indexes for both pages. OtherPDF can be same as the current instance you call this method on.

CheckMoving: Whether to check for moving parts, e.g. the big part of the page shifted up one line.

Returns number of annotations on success which means that highlight annotations have been added to both pages.
Or returns negative value in case of error.
You can than render a page to show differences to user.
Requires a DynaPDF Pro license. Without a license, the DynaPDF watermark will reduce the accuracy.

Scale: When comparison, scales up the pictures used for comparison. Default is 1 for 72dpi, but you can use 2 for double.
ColorTolerance: The tolerance for color comparison.
Colors where red, green or blue components are within given tolerance are considered equal. So FFFFFF and FFFFFD are equal.
Default is 3.

Debug Parameter: Whether to write debug images to temp folder.
If true, we write png files to temp folder. One image is before the check, one with all similar lines removed and one with result of comparison. Red pixels show you the raster, green equal pixels.
