Re: Create and Read PDF file formats

Sorry to say, I am not aware of any API of 3rd party jar that you can use to manipulate pdf files directly on the Blackberry.   But this question (or something similar) has been asked before, I recommend that you do a good search of this forum.  I believe one forum lurker was writing something to do something similar, but I don't know what stage this is at - you will find it if you search.

 

Good luck.
