Hello, We are currently migrating to 3.2 version of the Essential Suite and planning on utilizing more of the Essential components on top of those currently used. In particular, we are thinking about EssentialPDF. The requirements are: • Desktop application • Generate a multi-page statement containing outstanding invoices with further purpose of printing them and mailing (quite trivial I would say). Generating the PDF takes place on the user machine. • User should be prevented to modify the generated document in any way. Preventing from saving to disk is considering as well. Here is the input: • Standard Header, Standard Footer • Static document text stored in an XML file (or a text file) on user''s machine • Return address - stored in text file on user''s machine • Dynamic data in DataSet.DataTable containing the invoice info. All these provide data feed for generating the PDF. Originally, we were thinking merging all files into one XML and transforming them with XSL into XSL-FO document following another transformation into PDF with Rendering server (thrid party tool). Syncfusion came as a late player as we realize that we can be better off utilizing a tool (Essential) from a vendor that we already familiar with and (despite some pitfalls) have good and responsive support. I would really appreciate if you guys could assure me that EssentialPDF can do that job, in particular: • Generate a PDF doc according the above requirements? • Show the doc in Adobe Acrobat, or any other PDF compliant application? • Provide printing capabilities? • Prevent user from editing the doc? • Allow develop all that in an efficient manner? • Low effort maintenance after deployed? • Scalability? I would also appreciate prompt response since the decision should have been made last week and now we are behind the schedule (sound familiar?...). I will use your positive response as my base stand for using your tool in the upcoming meeting, so please give me as many “pro” arguments as you could, but be specific to requirements. Much appreciate.

Hi Lalitha, Thank you for a prompt reply. I briefed my boss on progress and my final report with recommendations ought to be published today. WITH RESPECT TO VERSION 3.3, is it worth for us upgrading from 3.2 that we are currently running on? Mind you, the new version will add risk to the project, so there should be a justification to go ahead with the upgrade. Could you please address following concerns: •Are we going to get more PDF-generating features with it? •What is in 3.3 that make it worth upgrading; in particular, for DataGrid, DataGrouping and PDF components?
