    PDF Thumbnails - Umbraco7

    Hi

    I have it to work in Umbraco7 - Cant install the pacakage in Umbraco 7, so i had to install it manually

     

    1. Unzip the  pacakae
    2. Upload the Flexit.PdfThumbnails.dll, GhostscriptSharp.dll , gsdll32.dll, gsdll64.dll
    3. Add the reference
    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage
    @using Flexit.PdfThumbnails
    @*
        Macro Parameters To Create, for this macro to work:
        Alias:mediaId     Name:Media Folder ID    Type:Single Media Picker
    *@
    
    @if (Model.MacroParameters["mediaId"] != null)
    {
         @* Get the media folder as a dynamic node *@
        var mediaFolder = Umbraco.Media(Model.MacroParameters["mediaId"]);
    
        if (mediaFolder.Children.Any())
        {
            <ul>
                @* for each item in children of the selected media folder *@
    
                @foreach (var mediaItem in mediaFolder.Children)
                {
                    int mediaID = mediaItem.Id;
                    var pdf = PDFHelper.GetMedia(mediaID);
                    <li>
                        <h5><a href="@mediaItem.umbracoFile">@mediaItem.Name</a></h5>
    
                        @foreach (var thumb in pdf.PdfThumbs)
                            {
                                <a target="_blank" href="@pdf.Media.Url"><img height="200" src="@thumb.fileName" alt=@mediaItem.Name""></a>
                            }
                        }
    
                    </li>
                }
            </ul>
        }
    }

    If this helps anyone

    I honestly want this to work, but it doesn't.

    I upload the dlls, and then create this on "partial View Macro Files", but nothing happens. It's broken in some way.

    If you (or anybody else) could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    :-)

    This solution will also work in Umbraco 7.3.0

    Funny, it doesn't work for me. When I call the new GetMedia extension I can see that there is no 'pdfThumbnails' node in the XML

    <File id="4394" parentID="4386" level="3" creatorID="0" sortOrder="6" createDate="2015-04-27T11:46:20" updateDate="2015-11-19T14:34:55" nodeName="filename.pdf" urlName="filenamepdf" path="-1,2966,4386,4394" isDoc="" nodeType="1033" writerName="Sebastian Dammark" writerID="0" version="bec89a23-d2fa-40a9-b49e-44f9238e3bcd" template="0" nodeTypeAlias="File">
        <umbracoFile>/media/1921/filename.pdf</umbracoFile>
        <umbracoExtension>pdf</umbracoExtension>
        <umbracoBytes>4370118</umbracoBytes>
    </File>
    

    I expect the DLL's to be uploaded to BIN folder ?

    Just for info

    I can see the folder in the media folder /media/1921/pdfthumbnails

    And just for kicks, it would be nice if you could tell it what page to convert to PDF. That way you don't fill the server with unused JPGs

    This should work:

    @using Flexit.PdfThumbnails
    
    int pdfId = Convert.ToInt32(CurrentPage.pdfProperty);
    var pdf = PDFHelper.GetMedia(pdfId);
    foreach (var thumb in pdf.PdfThumbs.Take(1)){
        @thumb.fileName
    }
    

    If not - Try saving your PDF-file in the media archive.

    Hi

    New information to help out here.

    Just testet on Umbraco version 7.4.2

    Install this: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/pdf-preview/

    Add a media picker to a doc type

    Add the macro to a template.

    Example template:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage @{ Layout = null; var pdfId = Model.Content.GetPropertyValue("pDF"); var pdfUrl = Umbraco.TypedMedia(pdfId).Url; }

    Index PDF

    @Umbraco.RenderMacro("PdfPreview", new {LinkURL=pdfUrl, MediaId=pdfId, PageNum="1", QualityDPI="18"})

    Result:

    enter image description here
