public PdfDocument ConvertHtmlString(

)

Parameters

htmlString

The html string to be converted to pdf.

The PdfDocument object that can be modified and saved to a file, to a stream, to a memory buffer or to a HTTP response.

The resulted PdfDocument object can be modified and saved to a file, to a stream, to a memory buffer or to a HTTP response. The PdfDocument object must be closed after save to release the system resources used during conversion.

The baseUrl parameter allows the converter to determine the full absolute urls from relative urls for images and css files appearing in the html string.

HtmlToPdf converter = new HtmlToPdf();
PdfDocument doc = converter.ConvertHtmlString(html, baseUrl);
doc.Save(file);
doc.Close();
