Syntax

Web Studio Help s2fr function file pdfcreate.xml d127834e76 PDFCreate

strSourceFile
String specifying the file path and name of the desired source file ( *.doc, *.txt, or *.rtf ). If a complete path is not specified, then the function will look for the source file in the project folder.
optStrPdfFile
Optional string specifying the file path and name of the created PDF file. If a file path is not specified, then the PDF file will be saved in the same location as the source file. If this parameter is omitted — that is, if no file path or name is specified at all — then the PDF file will be saved in the same location and with the same name as the source file. Only a new extension is added. For example, pathMyDocument.rtf becomes pathMyDocument.pdf.
Note: When entering the file name without a path, a leading backlash (““) is optional.
