This is a development kit that lets you develop applications with PDF reading capabilities.
PDF Viewer SDK helps develop, visually, PDF reader functionality. The kit will help develop a reader that is user friendly. Most users, even with a passing familiarity with a computer would be able to start the reader easily. The interface offered to the end user is very simple. This is fully compatible with the latest versions of the Adobe Acrobat document standards. You are not going to need the Adobe reader in any case. Several controls are available that eases viewing of PDFs. There is a select feature that helps select parts of the document and copies them easily. You can copy these segments into the clipboard. This may be text or images. Controls are available for viewing the documents comfortably. Zoom in/out controls helps view the content up close if necessary. If required you could view more than one page at a time too.
Full search feature is available. You can search the content for a specific piece of text. To work with the SDK, you need to develop programs in VB. It is compatible with Visual Studio 2005-2012. You need to have Microsoft .NET framework 2.0, 3.5, 4.00 resident in the development system. One could easily ask if you need another reader when Adobe has one available free. However, if you need to incorporate reader functionality into an application you are developing, you need a tool like this. This is a good product.
