The PDF Compressor API can be used for the batch process by calling a utility program via the command line, which then controls the PDF Compressor via the API:
- The PDF Compressor must run in API mode
- A utility e.g. C:\Program Files\Foxit\PDF Compressor\api\PDF_CompApi_Demo.exe can be called in the command line
Do not forget to add the rights parameters to activate the conversion
with -loadData you can reach the job list with all the settings for the conversion batch
Further parameter help to add searchable text to the output, read barcodes, set up output formats, etc.
But it is advisable that most of the parameters should be saved as a job file from which they can then be read. The commands are output by the auxiliary program itself when it is called.
3. The API folder inside the installation directory also contains documentation for creating command line programs by yourself:
C:\Program Files\Foxit\PDF Compressor\api
Important: The API itself does not offer the possibility of a remote connection and must therefore be called locally.
