    PDF output for graphical MFC C++ app

    Can anyone recommend a good library/API for adding PDF output to a graphically-intensive MFC C++ (GDI+ VC++ 6 etc) application?
    For example a simple EMF-to-PDF conversion would seem to be sufficient.
    It seems to be a common capability of many apps. Is there a standard or common solution I have missed?

    I'm sure there are many good solutions.

    This may seem odd to suggest for an MFC target, but take a look at wxWidgets PDF support. It is possible to incorporate that into an MFC application, and it's free.
    If my post was interesting or helpful, perhaps you would consider clicking the 'rate this post' to let me know (middle icon of the group in the upper right of the post).

    So far I'm not getting that idea. The Adobe PDF SDK is too costly. PDFLib is more reasonable but seems to be too low level - that is it does not have a simple EMF-to-PDF function, instead requires all low level functions to be mapped to PDF APIs, out of the question for this complex app.

    I'll look into the wxWidget PDF support as suggested. Thanks
