Is there any functionality within the API's or DLL's to create a thumbnail from a PDF? I have a font-end application that adds documents to Sentryfile, but I'd like to display a thumbnail of the document before addding it. I saw the thumbnailcreator.dll and ghostscript, but I'm not sure which, if either, would do the job.

Thanks

Revision_RetrieveCurrentThumbnail should return the thumbnail of the document you're wanting.

I did look at that function, but I would like to generate / display the thumbnail before the document is added to SentryFile. Revision_RetrieveCurrentThumbnail requires the document to already be added.

We're afraid that the thumbnail generator requires that the document be in a cabinet with a document_id before one can be generated. The thumbnail method cannot be accessed without it being a SentryFile document first.
