ABCpdf Version 8

Is anyone on the site familiar with ABCpdf?
We are using version 8 and everything seems to work
When rendering the .pdf using AddImageUrl the pdf always
renders as Action Canceled.
I know for a fact the url used in AddImageUrl is working with no
problems as I can run the URL which creates a .Net Gridview and
is populated when bound to the database.

Any suggestions?

I haven't played with ABCpdf in quite a while, but I'll take a quick stab at it. Are you using session variables on that page at all? I know that we had a problem with ABCpdf and session variables. We had to come up with alternative methods of passing the needed data.

If it's not that, I've got no clue, but figured I'd offer that in case it was the easy solution.

No session variables involved.  But thank for trying.
We are just creating a URL including some query strings.
It runs the URL page fine.  But, we always get that
Action Canceled message.

I was thinking it may be some sort of problem caused by calling the url
and then continuing with the rest of the code which sends the email with the .pdf
Possibly I may have to create a timer loop to give it some time.

Thanks again for trying.

If the URL you're calling is sending an email, that could be it. I just remember it being a pain to get it working and since it's working I haven't touched it in years. :) Have you tried calling a URL like http://www.google.com to find out if it's the page you're calling or the actual call you're making?

If you post the applicable code, I can match it up to what I have and see what looks different.

This question is being abandoned.  No resolution.  Just found a workaround without using abcpdf.

Thanks for all that tried to help.
Sorry I wasn't able to help more. If you want to post your code, I'm willing to see how it compares to mine. Also, if you let me know if calling http://www.google.com works, we could troubleshoot if it's the page you're calling or the page you're using abcpdf.

Since you found another solution, seems like it would only be if you had an interest in getting abcpdf to work.
