Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on May 11, 2010


my past post https://viralsarvaiya.wordpress.com/2009/07/08/make-a-pdf-file-from-asp-net/ is demonstrate how to develop the pdf file, but when i search in web that have less example for the image in background.

here i demonstrate how to set image in background in pdf file.

step 1 :

follow the link to create the pdf : https://viralsarvaiya.wordpress.com/2009/07/08/make-a-pdf-file-from-asp-net/

stpe 2 :

here i put the whole code for the image in background.

dont forget to download and put the itextsharp.dll file in bin folder.


void makePDF()
 {
 Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

 Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=test.pdf");

 Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);

 string imageFilePath = Server.MapPath(".") + "/images/test.jpg";

 iTextSharp.text.Image jpg = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imageFilePath);

 // Page site and margin left, right, top, bottom is defined
 Document pdfDoc = new Document(PageSize.A4, 10f, 10f, 10f, 0f);

 //Resize image depend upon your need
 //For give the size to image
 jpg.ScaleToFit(3000, 770);

 //If you want to choose image as background then,

 jpg.Alignment = iTextSharp.text.Image.UNDERLYING;

 //If you want to give absolute/specified fix position to image.
 jpg.SetAbsolutePosition(7, 69);

 PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, Response.OutputStream);

 pdfDoc.Open();

 pdfDoc.NewPage();

 Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph("this is the testing text for demonstrate the image is in background \n\n\n this is the testing text for demonstrate the image is in background");

 pdfDoc.Add(jpg);

 pdfDoc.Add(paragraph);

 pdfDoc.Close();

 Response.Write(pdfDoc);

 Response.End();
 }
