I am not sure that you can create a pdf without using a 3rd party tool. Is there a reason you don't want a 3rd party tool? It seems like reinventing the wheel.

Hello Sofia,

I will recommend you to go through following articles published here on CodeProject to know more about how it can be done. Using a third party toolkit will be much beneficial rather than re inventing the wheel.

There are other articles as well on this site.

Try using PDFSharp it's MIT Licensed. Please go through the PDF specification (http://wwwimages.adobe.com/www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/pdf/pdfs/adobe_supplement_iso32000_1.pdf) if you want to do it all by yourself.
