SelectPdf for .NET - Pdf Html Element - VB.NET / ASP.NET Sample

HTML content can be added to a pdf document in several ways. If a complex document is created that will contain several types of pdf elements and the html content that will be added is only a small part of the total content, PdfHtmlElement objects can be used to convert web pages or raw html content and add the conversion result to the pdf document.

If the pdf is generated mostly as a result of an html to pdf conversion, the HtmlToPdf object should be used instead. This is described in details in the "Html to Pdf Converter" section of our samples that starts here.

The following sample shows how to use a PdfHtmlElement object to convert a web page to pdf using SelectPdf Library for .NET.


Sample Code Vb.Net

Public Class pdf_html_element
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub BtnCreatePdf_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        ' create a new pdf document
        Dim doc As New PdfDocument()

        ' add a new page to the document
        Dim page As PdfPage = doc.AddPage()

        ' create html element 
        Dim html As New PdfHtmlElement(TxtUrl.Text)

        ' add the html element to the document

        ' save pdf document
        doc.Save(Response, False, "Sample.pdf")

        ' close pdf document
    End Sub
