Asked On September 19, 2008 01:22 PM UTC

I tested pdf Export with Version of pdf component and found that it produces Version 1.4 PDF
However version of the Pdf component produces 1.5 PDF Is there a setting where i can specify which pdf Version should be produced. Or did you decide that in you only support PDF Version 1.5 ( Adobe Reader 6 and greater)

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Changing PDF version

In version, we have hardcoded the PDF version as 1.5 by default. We can change the version number for the PDF document with the help of the Version property of the FileStructure class.

Kindly use the below code to change the version number,
//Changing PDF version as 1.4
doc.FileStructure.CrossReferenceType = PdfCrossReferenceType.CrossReferenceTable;
doc.FileStructure.Version = PdfVersion.Version1_4;

Please do find the sample from the below specified location and let me know if this helps,
