IvyDocumentReader not recognised in visual studio
« on: December 11, 2018, 08:06:42 AM »


I added the dll as a reference to the solution.
This is on top of my code: using IvyPdf;

This line:
PdfParser p = new PdfParser(IvyDocumentReader.ReadPdf(MyFileName));

IvyDocumentReader does not exist......

Hello knarf,

IvyDocumentReader is located in IvyDocumentReader.dll. Please reference it in your project in addition to IvyPdf.dll.

There are 3 dlls in IvyPdf folder. You need to reference some or all of them, depending on your needs:

IvyDocumentReader.dll - contains methods to read PDF files into IvyDocument object (collection of text Tokens and Lines)
IvyPdf.dll - contains methods to parse IvyDocument, search and extract information
IvyTemplateLib.dll - contains methods to read/write/execute extraction templates created via IvyTemplateEditor

For your sample code you need to reference the first two dlls.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you still have troubles.
