PSPDFRenderTask

Objective-C


@interface PSPDFRenderTask : NSObject

Swift

class RenderTask : NSObject

A render task is used to create an image from the page (or part of it) of a document.

Depending on the PSPDFRenderRequest cache policy, a render task checks the cache before actually triggering a new rendering.

You create a render task by passing it an instance of PSPDFRenderRequest. Once you have created a render request make sure to fully set it up before scheduling it in a render queue.

A simple example of requesting an image from a page:

let request = MutableRenderRequest(document: document)
request.pageIndex = 0
request.imageSize = CGSize(width: 320.0, height: 480.0)

let task = RenderTask(request: request)!
task.priority = .utility
task.delegate = self

SDK.shared.renderManager.renderQueue.schedule(task)
  • Unavailable

    Not the designated initializer

    Undocumented

    Declaration

    Declaration

    PSPDF_EMPTY_INIT_UNAVAILABLE
  • Initializes a task with a given render request.

    The render request is copied so you can no longer make changes to it after creating a render task out of it.

    Note

    The initializer verifies the request and returns nil if the request is not valid.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nullable instancetype)initWithRequest:(nonnull PSPDFRenderRequest *)request
                                       error:(NSError *_Nullable *_Nullable)error;

    Swift

    init(request: PSPDFRenderRequest) throws

    Parameters

    request

    The render request the task should fulfill.

    error

    Error that is set if creating the render task failed, because the render request is invalid.

  • The render request this task is initialized with.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, readonly) PSPDFRenderRequest *_Nonnull request;

    Swift

    var request: PSPDFRenderRequest { get }
  • The delegate that is used for reporting progress on this render task.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, weak) id<PSPDFRenderTaskDelegate> _Nullable delegate;

    Swift

    weak var delegate: RenderTaskDelegate? { get set }
  • The completion handler to be called after the rendering has completed.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (copy, nullable) void (^) (UIImage *_Nullable, NSError *_Nullable) completionHandler;

    Swift

    var completionHandler: ((UIImage?, Error?) -> Void)? { get set }
  • The rendered image after the task has completed.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, nullable) UIImage *image;

    Swift

    var image: UIImage? { get }
  • true if the task has been cancelled, false otherwise.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, getter=isCancelled) BOOL cancelled;

    Swift

    var isCancelled: Bool { get }
  • true if the task has been completed, false otherwise.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (readonly, getter=isCompleted) BOOL completed;

    Swift

    var isCompleted: Bool { get }
  • Cancels a task.

    You will no longer receive any callbacks from this task after cancelling it.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)cancel;

    Swift

    func cancel()
  • Groups a number of tasks together and executes a completion handler once all grouped tasks complete.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    + (void)groupTasks:(nonnull NSArray<PSPDFRenderTask *> *)tasks
        completionHandler:(nonnull void (^)(void))completionHandler;

    Swift

    class func groupTasks(_ tasks: [RenderTask], completionHandler: @escaping () -> Void)

    Parameters

    tasks

    The tasks you want to group.

    completionHandler

    The completion handler that is executed once all render tasks in the tasks array completed.

  • Deprecated

    Deprecated in PSPDFKit 9.1 for iOS. Use initWithRequest:error: instead.

    Undocumented

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nullable instancetype)initWithRequest:(PSPDFRenderRequest *)request PSPDF_DEPRECATED(9.1, 4.1, "Use `initWithRequest:error:` instead.") NS_SWIFT_UNAVAILABLE("Use version with error handling");
