    Hi there,

    It can not be done directly. For doing the conversion from the pdf file format to the swf file format you need to use third party library. One more library which can extract the information from the PDF file. There are lots of online tools are available to make the change in the PDF file. Download it from the site or purchase it from the shop and enjoy the conversion.

    Hope you will fine the solution with same

    Re: Convert pdf to swf using .net code

    SWF was known as the "Small Web Format" but later on it is modified as the "Shockwave Flash" by the one of the manufacturing company known as the Macromedia but this is not the end it again changes to the Small Web Format. But this happen because the company wants to give a phrase of Shockwave.

    SWF in present time is used for the format for displaying "animated" vector graphics. It is widely used on the web for exceeding the use of the W3C open standard SVG,It also used for the program i.e gaming

    Thanks you

    Re: Convert pdf to swf using .net code

    According to me, I suggest you to install the SWFTOOLS in your browser. After installing this tool on your local machine, simply copy the "font
    " and the PDF2SWF.exe file into a folder in your application root folder "PDF2SWF" and can make use of the following code as :
    Code:
    int Pgno = 1;
    string fNm = "Files/1.pdf";
    System.Diagnostics.Process r = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
    r.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    r.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
    r.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
    r.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
    r.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~");
    r.StartInfo.fNm = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/PDF2SWF/PDF2SWF.exe");
    r.StartInfo.Arguments = "-F " + "\"" 
                      +HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("~/PDF2SWF/FONTS") + 
                     "\"" + " -p " + Pgno + " " + fNm + " -o " + fNm + Pgno + ".swf";
    r.Start();
    r.WaitForExit();
    r.Close();

    Can you try to supply the code? It could be a syntax error. Try to re-type the whole line. watch that the web-url gets blue in the codeview.

    Working example:
    Code:
    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("iexplore.exe", "http://www.techarena.in");
    *But*: You simply could start a process with the url, then the default browser starts:
    
    System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("http://www.techarena.in");

    Re: Convert pdf to swf using .net code

    Hi there
    I agree with Katty that "It can not be done directly"
    Use code to convert pdf to swf is very hard stuff, maybe you can use a convert software.
    From my experience, free converters like "free pdf to swf", "Free 3DPageFlip PDF to Flash Converter" is you good choice.
