We stumbled upon Scryber the other day when we were looking for a solution for our project.
Our goal is to create a software that creates (multi page) PDFs with a header, body and footer.
Our idea is that we are having multiple XML files for the headers and bodys while there is one single footer XML. Depending on the software logic and choices, the right header and body will be picked from a folder, followed by adding the footer XML so the PDF can be generated.
Also, text placeholders should be available in the XML files for dynamic text content.
According to a video we found on youtube the files with the extension pdfx are getting parsed into PDF format. What we want to do is using C#.NET code to save the generated PDF into a folder on a server.
The questions now are:
a) Is it possible to tell our c# code to join the XML files header_123.xml, body_1447.xml and footer.xml together to create a PDF file?
b) Can we use placeholders?
c) Is there any API available on this website where we can look up all the methods we need?
