Name Type Description
stream Stream

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

options PdfExportOptions

A PdfExportOptions object which specifies the PDF export options to be applied when a document is exported.


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 the specified PDF export options (e.g. PdfExportOptions.ImageQuality, PdfExportOptions.NeverEmbeddedFonts and so on).

Note that in this instance the current printing system's export options, which are represented by the PdfExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Pdf property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions, are ignored.

If you want to use the current export options of a printing system, you should call the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToPdf method without the options parameter.

For more information, see Export to PDF.
