Document Imaging SDK 12.96 now includes a brand new C# Annotation sample application that uses the Document Imaging SDK DLLs instead of the OCX/ActiveX controls. The outdated OCX/ActiveX control technology will be phased out for a more secure alternative. The annotation sample includes the source code on how to implement many of the complex annotations in the Document Imaging SDK to help developers easily transition their applications. The following annotations are available for implementation:

  • Whiteout
  • Highlight
  • Note
  • Line
  • Rectangle
  • Rounded rectangle
  • Ellipse
  • Text
  • Freehand
  • Metafile
  • Stamp
  • Rubber stamp
  • Voice
  • Comment
  • Checkbox
  • Textbox
  • Multiline textbox
  • Datetime
  • Shape (Left/Right/Up/Down arrow)

Added support for opening and saving Vector/Editable PDF to the Annotation C++, Annotation OCX C#, and Annotation DLL C# samples.

The Document Imaging SDK now includes new solutions and project files for Visual Studio 2022, 2019, and 2017 to the C++, C#, and VB.NET samples. We removed old solution and project files for Visual Studio 2013, 2012, 2010, and 2005.

Many outdated samples are removed from Document Imaging SDK. Some of the samples were also updated. For more details please see the Document Imaging SDK version history.
