PdfiumLight

A lightweight C# Library to render PDFs with Google's Pdfium in .NET Apps. This is basically a much slimmer version of Pieter van Ginkel's PdfiumViewer with some added functionality.

Getting started

Getting started is easy. Just add PdfiumLight, PdfiumViewer.Native.x86.v8-xfa and / or PdfiumViewer.Native.x86_64.v8-xfa (see below) as NuGet dependencies to your project and you're good to go:

// Load the pdf file and create a new document object
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument("C:/Users/Tom/Documents/sample.pdf");
// Load the first page
PdfPage page = document.GetPage(0);
// Render the page
Image renderedPage = page.Render(700, 1200, 1, 1, PdfRotation.Rotate0, PdfRenderFlags.None);

You have to provide pdfium.dll

There are many ways to include pdfium.dll, the most easy one is by adding one or both of the following NuGet-dependencies created by @pvginkel:

  • PdfiumViewer.Native.x86.v8-xfa
  • PdfiumViewer.Native.x86_64.v8-xfa

A very basic packages.config could look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<packages>
  <package id="PdfiumLight" version="0.0.3" targetFramework="net45" />
  <package id="PdfiumViewer.Native.x86.v8-xfa" version="2018.4.8.256" targetFramework="net45" />
  <package id="PdfiumViewer.Native.x86_64.v8-xfa" version="2018.4.8.256" targetFramework="net45" />
</packages>

Features

(already implemented)

  • load PDF-documents
  • render pages
  • convert device coordinates to page coordinates and vice versa
  • extract text from page
  • check if there is text at a specific point on the page (very usefull if implementing a text layer)

(still to come)

  • support for internal and external links
  • search
  • annoatation support
  • form support

(wishlist)

  • caching
  • part-by-part rendering (although I'm not sure if Pdfium does support it)
  • simple editing features such as reorder and deleting pages and merging documents
