PDF To Clipboard...

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have been successful in my endeavors to get a thumbnail of a PDF, but we do not have image manipulation functions in AutoIt. I basically am interested in any code that could be shared (even if I need to make a plugin) that will take information (picture object) from the clipboard resize to 50% oringinal size. I can get it to the clipboard, I just cant get it off without the dirty methods.

Maybe if Lazy cat could share how his works internally or if it just uses the DLL/Plugin he created. I really would love to be able to have these PDF's as a thumbnail so the person using my program will know which is which.

I have tried just using GUICtrlCreateObj() and including the Acrobat in there, but that isnt working out as planned.

Someone let me know if they know of a solution. I have been googling for a bit, and searching through the different screen capture functions I have seen on the forum. All of them are the entire solution, not just the second half :D.

Edit: Found _ClipPutFile() which is the exact opposite of what I need. :P

Thanks :D,

JS

If you are not opposed to third-party programs, I'd normally say IrfanView http://www.irfanview.com/main_what_is_engl.htm

However, it appears to lack a resize by percentage--I only see /resize=(w,h)

Maybe imagemagick would work--I have not tried.

I agree with Cyberslug about simply using IrfanView. As to resize by percentage you can simply do this with AutoIT code (imagewidth/X = desired percent reduction) solve for X and plug it into the run command that you launch irfanview from.

I have thought about Irfan View. I have it installed on my system (always have and always will :D), but I have been unable in my searches to find the command line options for it.

Thanks,

Thank you everyone!
