    I want to convert HTML into PDF using Rotativa.

    I have tried this:

    public GridPagination FilterData(int? PageNumber, StaffInfoViewModel filters)
    GridPagination gridData = new GridPagination();
    double count = 0;
    // Getting all the Data from Database
    md.StaffList = _repository.StaffList();
    // Checking if the Page number is passed and is greater than 0 else considered as 1
    gridData.CurrentPage = PageNumber.HasValue ? PageNumber.Value <= 0 ? 1 : PageNumber.Value : 1;
    // Assigning the list of data to the Model's property
    gridData.StaffInfoData = md.StaffList;
    // Assigning filters
    gridData.StaffFilters = filters;

    //Getting the List with the matching emp_no
    if (filters.Id>0)
    gridData.StaffInfoData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Where(x => x.Id.ToString().Contains(filters.Id.ToString())).ToList();

    //Getting the List with the matching first_name
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(filters.Name))
    gridData.StaffInfoData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Where(x => x.Name.ToLower().Contains(filters.Name.ToLower())).ToList();

    //Getting the List with the matching last_name
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(filters.Designation))
    gridData.StaffInfoData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Where(x => x.Designation.ToLower().Contains(filters.Designation.ToLower())).ToList();

    //Getting the List with the matching gender
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(filters.Gender))
    gridData.StaffInfoData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Where(x => x.Gender.ToLower().Contains(filters.Gender.ToLower())).ToList();

    // If there are multiple filter key passed then the above condition will work as an operator condition

    // Total data count after filter
    gridData.TotalData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Count();

    // Getting the total pages
    count = (double)gridData.TotalData / gridData.TakeCount;
    gridData.TotalPage = (int)Math.Ceiling(count);

    // assigning the filtered data to model
    // This is the formula for skiping the previous page's data and taking the current page's
    gridData.StaffInfoData = gridData.StaffInfoData.Skip((gridData.CurrentPage - 1) * gridData.TakeCount).Take(gridData.TakeCount).ToList();
    catch (Exception ex)
    gridData = new GridPagination();
    //returning the Grid.
    return gridData;

    public ActionResult Index()
    return View(FilterData(1, new StaffInfoViewModel()));

    public ActionResult PaginateData(int pageNo, StaffInfoViewModel StaffFilters)
    return PartialView("_StaffList", FilterData(pageNo, StaffFilters));

    public ActionResult DownloadViewPDF()
    return new ActionAsPdf("Index");

    By using above code, Only page no. 1 is converted, how can I convert another pages?

    Hi Riju Maharjan,

    I want to convert HTML into PDF using Rotativa.

    You could add a temp page to show all of the results (without implementing paging), then convert this page to pdf.

    Please refer to the following article to learn how to use Rotativa.
