create a itextsharp pdf on aspx page. RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1651858287 posted
    I am using a Wizard control I would like to create a pdf before the user
    goes to ActiveStep 5.
    I was wondering what I have to add to the page directive
    <%@ Page Language="C#" ..../>

    I am not using the code behind only on the aspx page.
    void OnNextButtonClick(object sender, WizardNavigationEventArgs e) 
         if(Wizard1.ActiveStepIndex == 4)  
            //create pdf

    You can create button and button click event and inside this event you can generate pdf using iTextSharp. See this article on iTextSharp to understand.

    Hi sweetSteal,

    I am not using the code behind only on the aspx page.

     if(Wizard1.ActiveStepIndex == 4)   {     //create pdf     }

    According to your description, I couldn’t understand your requirement clearly.

    Do you mean you want to create a itextsharp pdf in code behind?

    If this is your requirement, I suggest you could refer to this code about how to create a pdf file by itextsharp.

    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server"></asp:GridView>
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" OnClick="Button1_Click" />
     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (!IsPostBack)
                    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
                    dt.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[3] { new DataColumn("Id"), new DataColumn("Name"), new DataColumn("Country") });
                    dt.Rows.Add(1, "n1", "c1");
                    dt.Rows.Add(2, "n2", "c2");
                    dt.Rows.Add(3, "n3", "c3");
                    GridView1.DataSource = dt;
            protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(500, 300);
                Document pdfDoc = new Document(rect, 10F, 10F, 10F, 0F);
                using (StringWriter sw = new StringWriter())
                    using (HtmlTextWriter hw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw))
                        HTMLWorker htmlparser = new HTMLWorker(pdfDoc);
                        StringReader sr = new StringReader(sw.ToString());
                        PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, Response.OutputStream);
                Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
                Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=GridViewExport.pdf");
            public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)

    If I misunderstand your requirement, please post more details information about your requirement.

    Best regards,
