How to Instantiate

The easiest way to instantiate the control is to place the control on your form in form-designer mode. Alternatively you may instantiate the control without placement, though in some programming languages this will make difficult or restrict some required tasks. In C# for example you would do as follows:

AxPDFXEdit.AxPXV_Control pdfCtl = new AxPDFXEdit.AxPXV_Control();

To prevent evaluation restrictions (the embedding of DEMO labels within a file and on screen) you must provide a PDF-XChange Editor SDK developer's license key using the IPXV_Control:SetLicKey method, once done so you will be able to use the entire API free of evaluation limitations.
