Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream object to which the created PDF file should be sent.


Once the document export has started, it will run until the resulting document is complete and cannot be interrupted or canceled in the process.

Use this method to export a document in PDF format using its current PDF-specific export options.

These options are represented by the PdfExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Pdf property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions. This object provides the PdfExportOptions.ImageQuality, PdfExportOptions.NeverEmbeddedFonts and other properties which are intended to specify parameters of the resulting PDF file.

If you want to ignore the current export options of a printing system, and use your specific settings when a document is exported to PDF, you should use the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToPdf method with the options parameter.
