Export data to PDF or Word File


  • Hi! Im new in the c#/XAML creating windows 8 app. Im trying to create an app which will export data (probably gridviewitems) to pdf or word file format. Im using a third party library such as itextsharp and pdfsharp for exporting data to pdf, but i cant run the program and had some issues in namespaces. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!

  • There aren't any in-box API to export Word or PDF so you'll need to use a 3rd party library that supports Windows Store apps. You don't say what problems you are having with your libraries, but I suspect they aren't designed for use in Windows Store apps. You'll need to check with the authors.

    I'm not aware of any free libraries which are compatible, but I believe some of the commercial component libraries can write these file types.
