Description

The function opens the output file into which the PDF file should be written.
The PDF file must be created in memory if this function should be used. This is the case if you called DynaPDF.New without a file path.

It is strongly recommended to check with DynaPDF.HaveOpenDocument whether a PDF file is still in memory before calling this function.

If you get back an error "Cannot open file!", please check if you didn't open the file before with DynaPDF.OpenPDFFromFile. In that case a call to DynaPDF.CloseImportFile may be needed.

See also OpenOutputFile function in DynaPDF manual.
