Description

The SaveAsPDFFile() function is set up exactly the same as the SaveAsPNGFile() function. In addition, an optional title, subject and author can be entered.

Starting with xmCHART 5.0.4, it is also possible to append or insert the created drawing to an already existing PDF document. When fileFlag = 3, the drawing is appended to the PDF file, by adding an optional page number the drawing is inserted before the entered page number.
