Windows Phone support has been added! Convert PDF to image in Windows Phone Store applications with our .NET component.

      Another big release is now available for our users, a version of Apitron PDF Rasterizer for Windows Phone 8.
      It seems that if you have to develop an application for Windows Phone 8 and need PDF to image conversion you are quite limited in this matter.

But we have solved this problem and now you can get it done using Apitron PDF Rasterizer (see http://apitron.com/Downloads ).

We also created a sample for you, and below are  highlights from Windows Phone 8 app showing it in action(complete code sample is included with download package and can be found in Samples\WindowsPhoneAppSample folder):

1) XAML for main page is very simple, we have only title, button, and container image placed on page

    FontFamily="{StaticResource PhoneFontFamilyNormal}"
    FontSize="{StaticResource PhoneFontSizeNormal}"
    Foreground="{StaticResource PhoneForegroundBrush}"
    SupportedOrientations="Portrait" Orientation="Portrait"

    <!--LayoutRoot is the root grid where all page content is placed-->
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="Transparent">
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
            <RowDefinition Height="*"/>

        <!--TitlePanel contains the name of the application and page title-->
        <StackPanel x:Name="TitlePanel" Grid.Row="0" Margin="10,10,10,10" Orientation="Horizontal">
            <TextBlock Text="PDF to Image sample by Apitron" Style="{StaticResource PhoneTextNormalStyle}" Margin="12,0" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            <Button x:Name="Render" Click="OnRenderClicked" Content="Render" />

        <!--ContentPanel - place additional content here-->
        <Grid x:Name="ContentPanel" Grid.Row="1" Margin="12,0,12,0">
            <Image HorizontalAlignment="Stretch"  VerticalAlignment="Stretch" x:Name="myImage"/>

2) PDF to image rendering code (C#)

    public partial class MainPage : PhoneApplicationPage
        // Constructor
        public MainPage()

        /// <summary>
        /// Handles Render button click event
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="sender"></param>
        /// <param name="e"></param>
        private async void OnRenderClicked(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            // get the assets folder for the app
            StorageFolder folder = await Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Current.InstalledLocation.GetFolderAsync("Assets");

            // get the file included in app assets
            StorageFile file = await folder.GetFileAsync("3bigpreview.pdf");

            // open the file and render first page
            using (Stream stream = await file.OpenStreamForReadAsync())
                Document doc = new Document(stream);

                Apitron.PDF.Rasterizer.Page page = doc.Pages[0];

                ErrorLogger logger = new ErrorLogger();
                WriteableBitmap bm = page.Render((int) page.Width, (int) page.Height, new RenderingSettings(), logger);               

                myImage.Source = bm;               


3) resulting app, running on a Windows Phone 8 Device, I used our lovely test file here and as you can see it looks the same on as on "big" screens.

  1. This is exactly what I was looking for my project.

  2. I really think that Apitron.PDF.Rasterizer is excellent. It shows a lot of polish over previous versions.

  3. How do I get Windows Phone version?
