For those who are going to create Universal apps requiring PDF rendering for both Windows Phone Store and Windows Store we have prepared a sample showing our Apitron PDF Rasterizer for .NET component in action.
This C# sample is called ProgressiveRenderingSample and it was created using Visual C#\Store Apps\Universal Apps\Blank App template. Sample is included into the product download package, see Samples folder (get it here). The solution contains two specific projects each targeting its own platform (Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1) and a shared code project.
In this sample we demonstrate that the same code can be used to render PDF to image on both platforms and the technique called “progressive rendering”. Both apps render PDFs using special rendering thread and update their views asynchronously taking the load off the UI thread. It makes the app more responsive to user actions and gives him perfect feedback.
Screenshots, showing 2 apps side by side:
Both apps use the same code and library for rendering and they even look similar having the same layout for their main pages. Try it yourself or contact us if you have any questions or comments.
