Using PDF Extractor SDK from Delphi

Some Delphi versions are incorrectly working with .NET - ActiveX wrappers directly but works fine through the so called "late binding" which do NOT require to have anything imported or added (so remove the PDFExtractor... tlb file form the project).

Here is the sample DPR code:

program Project1;

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

{
IMPORTANT:
To work with Bytescout PDF Extractor SDK you may also use Late Binding

}

uses
SysUtils,
ActiveX;

var
extractor: Variant;
begin
CoInitialize(nil);

// Create Bytescout.PDFExtractor.CSVExtractor object using CoCSVExtractor class
extractor := CreateOleObject('Bytescout.PDFExtractor.CSVExtractor') ;


extractor.RegistrationName := 'demo';
extractor.RegistrationKey := 'demo';

// Load sample PDF document
extractor.LoadDocumentFromFile ('../../sample3.pdf');

// extractor.CSVSeparatorSymbol = ','; // you can change CSV separator symbol (if needed) from "," symbol to another if needed for non-US locales

extractor.SaveCSVToFile ('output.csv');

// destroy the extractor object
extractor := nil;

end.
