Scanning Documents from VB.Net 2003

P: n/a
Hi-

I am working on a very simple document management system. I would like to
allow the user to control a scanner from inside the
application(specifically, scan a document and save it in .pdf format, and
with the database maintaining the name of the newly created file).

I have not worked scanners on a programming level and any help would be
greatly appreciated(also, please note that I am not opposed to buying com
objects to facilitate the development).

Thanks,

Rick

Here's a link to some TWAIN code for VB.NET that is a conversion of the C#

As one poster mentioned, you can use Atalasoft DotImage for a suite of
managed .NET imaging components that lets you very easily scan
documents, and save them to a PDF.

Also, if you want a standalone 100% managed scanning solution, you can
use DotTwain, but this doesn't give you PDF output support.

More information is available at http://www.atalasoft.com/

Please give us a call or email if you would like to talk more about
how oru components could save you a lot of time and money.
