VectorDraw Developers Framework
Current version 6
Native PDF export capability
Framework (VDF) is a graphics engine-library that can be used from developers
in order to visualize their applications. With the functionality
provided, our customers can easily create, edit, manage, export, import
and print 2d and 3d drawings - graphic files. A powerful format used by
VDF named VDML (and VDCL same as VDML but compressed) XML based that supports custom objects
and is not depended from the component's version. The library also
supports for import-export several vector and raster formats
including native PDF and SVG export.
The version 6 engine is written from the scratch and is completely new. The geometric algorithms are re-written giving better and faster results. The whole component is in managed .NET 2005 C# code and also a ActiveX component is produced that works as a wrapper to the .NET component for backward compatibility for older development platforms like VisualBasic 6.0 and Delphi.
Our company's main goal is to provide our clients an easy way to add to their applications graphics that make the interface more friendly.
