Hi,

Herewith I am attaching the complete error details.

I downloaded aspose.total for .NET and Registered the Aspose.words.dll from .net2.0 folder.



Please help us asap.After that only we can conclude whether we can use Aspose.words for our Document generation project.



Thanks

Dear Team,



Please provide sample code for Compressing PDF size.I am using Aspose.words as com in Delphi and when saving .doc file to pdf ,size would be double.

I am not able to use PDFsaveoptions properties like usercorefonts,PDFtextcompression in doc.Save method.

Error: Incompatible types : ‘_SaveOptions’ and ‘_PdfSaveOptions’



Below is the code tried in Delphi

var

doc: _Document;

builder: _DocumentBuilder;

Saveoptions :_PdfSaveOptions;

opendoc:_ComHelper;

dataDir :string;

l8087CW: Word;

begin

l8087CW := Default8087CW;

Set8087CW($133f);

try

doc := CoDocument.Create;

builder := CoDocumentBuilder.Create;

opendoc:=CoComHelper.Create;

Saveoptions:=CoPdfSaveOptions.Create;

dataDir := ‘c:\test3.pdf’;

doc := opendoc.Open(‘c:\test.DOC’);

Saveoptions.TextCompression:=PdfTextCompression_Flate;

Saveoptions.UseCoreFonts:=True;

doc.Save_3(dataDir,Saveoptions) ;



finally

Set8087CW(l8087CW);

end;

Hi Vijaya,

Thanks for your inquiry. We are working over your query and will get back to you soon.
Hi Vijaya,

We apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi Vijaya,

Thanks for your patience. Please read "Creating a Wrapper Assembly" from following article:
Use Aspose.Words for .NET via COM Interop

In your case, we suggest you please create a wrapper class in C#/VB.NET and use it in your Delphi code. Please check following wrapper class for your kind reference. Hope this helps you.

namespace AsposeComWrapper

{

class DocumentConversion

{

public void ExportToPdf(object inPath, object outPath)

{

Document doc = new Document((string)inPath);

PdfSaveOptions saveOptions = new PdfSaveOptions();

saveOptions.TextCompression = PdfTextCompression.Flate;

saveOptions.UseCoreFonts = true;

doc.Save((string)outPath, saveOptions);

}

}

}


Please make assembly visible for COM (On the View menu, click Solution Explorer. In Solution Explorer, right-click the project that you want to build for COM interop, and then click Properties. Click the Application node. Click to button the Assembly Information. Click to select the Make assembly COM-visible check box)


Please register assembly using regasm.exe utility.

regasm C:\AsposeComWrapper.dll /codebase

Hi Vijaya,

Thanks for your patience. It is to inform you that the issue which you are facing is actually not a bug in Aspose.Words. So, we have closed this issue (WORDSNET-14809) as 'Not a Bug'.

The problem occurs somewhere inside Delphi (or Embarcadero) because we are using Double.NaN value in our code. You can reproduce the same problem with any other .NET assembly which uses Double.NaN inside the code.

namespace DoubleNan

{

public class TestClass

{

public TestClass() { }

public void TestMethod()

{

Console.WriteLine("Start1");

double test = Double.NaN;

Console.WriteLine("End1");

}

}

}


Please create a wrapper class and register it using regasm.exe utility as shared in my previous post. Try to use this assembly inside Delphi in Embarcadero RAD studio, like this:

var testClass: OleVariant;

CoInitialize(nil);

testClass := CreateOleObject('DoubleNan.TestClass');

testClass.TestMethod;

CoUninitialize;


You will get the same exception like upon using Aspose.Words. The same assembly works fine in VB via COM.
Hi Vijaya,

Further to my previous post, the exception you are getting is a well-known problem with Delphi. The reason is that Delphi run-time changes the the Floating Point Control Word (FPCW) register and .NET run-time doesn't expect that change.

Please check following article about this problem:
Floating point exception in managed code results in Access Violation crash

The article suggests to reset FPCW before executing .NET code from Delphi. Please check the following code snippet. Hope this helps you.

procedure Foo;
var
saved8087CW : Word;
begin
saved8087CW := Default8087CW;
try
// Disable all floating-point exceptions.
Set8087CW($133F);
// Now we are ready to use Aspose.Words assembly.
// ...
finally
Set8087CW(saved8087CW);
end;
end;
