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");


 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);



 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");

Make a PDF file from

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on July 8, 2009

to make a pdf file hear I demonstrate as below,

you have to take a itextsharp.dll file from the following link

now the code is as follows,

Imports iTextSharp.text
Imports iTextSharp.text.pdf

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
If IsPostBack = False Then
End If
End Sub

Sub makepdf()

Dim labelFont14 As Font = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.TIMES_ROMAN, 14, Font.NORMAL)
labelFont14.Color = New iTextSharp.text.Color(0, 25, 25)

Dim labelFont12 As Font = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.TIMES_ROMAN, 12, Font.NORMAL)
labelFont12.Color = New iTextSharp.text.Color(0, 25, 25)

'as like that you can define the font.

PageSize.A4.BackgroundColor = New iTextSharp.text.Color(255, 255, 255)
Dim doc As Document = New Document(PageSize.A4, 1, 0, 0, 30)
PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, New FileStream(Server.MapPath("path/filename.pdf"),FileMode.Create))
doc.AddAuthor("Author name")


Dim tablemain As Table = New Table(1)

'here table(1) denotes the 1 collumns, when u add the cell then it creates the one column and then 2nd cell is make the 2nd row for that column

tablemain.BorderWidth = 0
tablemain.Width = 100.0F
tablemain.Padding = 0
tablemain.Spacing = 0

Dim celln As New Cell(New Chunk(“string” & vbCrLf, labelFont14))
celln.Width = 90.0F
celln.HorizontalAlignment = Element.ALIGN_CENTER



as per your requirements you can set the collumns and rows
