Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodDispose
Releases all resources managed by this object.
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
Releases the unmanaged resources used by the PdfDecoder and optionally releases the managed resources
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodGetDefaultResolution
Public methodGetFrameCount
Returns the number of pages in a PDF document.
(Overrides MultiFramedImageDecoderGetFrameCount(Stream).)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetImageInfo(Stream)
Returns information about the first page of the PDF document.
(Overrides ImageDecoderGetImageInfo(Stream).)
Public methodGetImageInfo(Stream, Int32)
Returns information about the given page of the PDF document.
(Overrides MultiFramedImageDecoderGetImageInfo(Stream, Int32).)
Public methodGetTextDocument
Creates the text document.
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsValidFormat
Returns true if and only if the specified Stream contains a PDF document.
(Overrides ImageDecoderIsValidFormat(Stream).)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone

Public methodRead(Stream, ProgressEventHandler)
Read a PDF document and return the first page as an AtalaImage.
(Overrides ImageDecoderRead(Stream, ProgressEventHandler).)
Public methodRead(Stream, Int32, ProgressEventHandler)
Read a PDF document and return the given page as an AtalaImage.
(Overrides MultiFramedImageDecoderRead(Stream, Int32, ProgressEventHandler).)

Remarks
To support reading JPEG2000 and JBIG2 compressed PDF files, you must distribute the Atalasoft.dotImage.Jbig2.dll and Atalasoft.dotImage.Jpeg2000.dll alongside your Atalasoft.dotImage.PdfReader.dll. However you are not required to distribute these dependencies if you do not wish to support JP2 or JBIG images within PDF files.
