Dynamsoft Upgrades its Document Scan SDK with Requested Developer Features

The Upgraded SDK, Dynamic Web TWAIN v16.2, Improves Upon API, UI and Other Such Capabilities

VANCOUVER – Feb. 22, 2021 – Dynamsoft™ has updated its document capture and management software development kit with many code updates targeting features desired by developers to improve their own workflows or capabilities. The new SDK is v16.2.

To start, a new event, OnBufferChanged, was added. It is triggered when the buffer changes such as for a new page, an existing page is removed, modified, shifted, or filtered. The new OnBufferChanged event lets developers add the ability to know the status of a particular event in real time. For example, if a new page is added, the page count footer now visually changes as it happens. Same thing if a page is removed. This is possible whether using the built-in Dynamsoft viewer of a developer builds their own.

In addition, the default loader bar can now be customized with the API Dynamsoft.WebTwainEnv.CustomizableDisplayInfo.loaderBarSource. This is only effective when set before the page finishes loading (before DOMContentLoaded). This gives developers more control over how the loader UI looks in their end-user application.

A new global property was added, Dynamsoft.WebTwainEnv.IfAlwaysFocusOnPopupWindow. This is to control whether to set the focus on scanner-related windows opened by the Dynamsoft Service when the browser tab on which the SDK is running is active. In the past, these windows would be on top no matter which browser tab is active.

About Dynamic Web TWAIN

Dynamic Web TWAIN provides cross-browser and cross-platform document scanning support for web applications. Developers need only write a handful of lines of JavaScript code to enable document scanning, uploading, editing, and processing. This turns otherwise months of work to just days. The SDK works across Android, iOS, Linux, macOS or Windows devices.

Users can scan documents from TWAIN, SANE and ICA-compatible scanners using a variety of browsers: Chrome®, Firefox®, Edge®, Internet Explorer® (IE), or Safari®. Users can also edit captured documents and save the images in various file formats such as JPEG, TIFF, PDF, and more. These files can be transferred and stored across varying protocols, local or remote file systems, databases, and document repositories.

In addition, there are several add-ons available. A barcode scanner SDK provides enterprise-grade support for the most common 1D and 2D barcode symbols.

And a PDF rasterizer lets users conveniently view and convert PDF files into common image file formats.
