PDF Renderers Overview

A PDF renderer is an object capable of rendering PDF elements into the final PDF document. Currently the PDF Creator API defines two types of renderers derived from the ElementsRenderer abstract class: the PdfPage class which renders elements in a PDF page and the Template class which renders the elements in a template area repeated on each page of the PDF document. Both renderers are capable to render the same graphic elements types like HTML to PDF converter elements, shape elements texts and images, but additionally, the PdfPage renderer can render other interactive elements like PDF links, digital signature elements, attachments, text notes that cannot be rendered by a Template renderer.
