    PDF manipulation in Flex

    ratnawe

      Hi,

       

      is there any way of manipulating PDF files in Flex 3?

       

      What I want to do is

       

      • load (not necessarily show) an existing PDF file in a Flex, AIR, AS3 environment
      • read its properties, e.g. the PDF version, and finally
      • make changes to the PDF file, e.g. convert to PDF/A for archiving purposes, i.e. Acrobat Standard or Professional capabilites.

       

      I know that AlivePDF is THE library when it comes to PDF generation but isn't there something similar for PDF manipulation? Or will the Acrobat SDK be available to Flex, AIR, AS programmers in the near future?

       

      Thanks in advance!
