PDF Alternative

Hello,

We have a inhouse LOB WinForm application, 20 users or so, and I have a concern about the PDF licensing costs.  From my research we would have to spend $3,300 or $4,800 for PDF licensing.  This is kinda steep for such small user-base.

Is there a significant advantage to their API?  What a tool like PDFSharp here on CodePlex work too?  Any input would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Michael DePouw

PS I'm super excited about writing linq queries for reporting!

Actually we now have a free PDF report writer based on iTextSharp, you can
see an example of it on the home page. It's completely free to license I
believe, but double check that just in case since IANAL (I am not a lawyer)

Thanks for the quick reply.  I see, iTextSharp support, great!

BTW, the Key Components documentation probably should be updated for iTextSharp support.
