Hi Sharad,

I didn't checked whatz the problem with your code, but you can use below code to convert html to pdf, it works fine for me and I hope it will work for you also :).

I use ITextSharp dll version

private void Converter(string htmlText, string path)
            Document doc = new Document(PageSize.A4);
                iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter pdf = (iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, new FileStream(path, FileMode.Create)));
                //pdf.SetEncryption(iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter.STRENGTH128BITS, "user password", "owner password", iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter.ALLOW_COPY);

                //make an arraylist ....with STRINGREADER since its no IO reading file...
                System.Collections.Generic.List<IElement> htmlarraylist = iTextSharp.text.html.simpleparser.HTMLWorker.ParseToList(new StringReader(htmlText), null);
                //add the collection to the document
                for (int k = 0; k < htmlarraylist.Count; k++)
                // or add the collection to an paragraph 
                // if you add it to an existing non emtpy paragraph it will insert it from
                //the point youwrite -
                //Paragraph mypara = new Paragraph();//make an emtphy paragraph as "holder"
                //mypara.IndentationLeft = 36;
                //mypara.InsertRange(0, htmlarraylist);
            catch (Exception ex)
                //Log error
                catch (Exception e)
                    //log document closing error

Hello ravi is it also show the Images as well as the border of the table and css applied , i have done this same right now but not able to show the css and table borders
well in my case it was simple inline css and this piece of code worked perfectly fine their. For having a separate style sheet file, I think you need to use some overload of "ParseToList" method, one of them takes a stylesheet parameter.

I have passed null for that as i haven't used an external css.

For image thing, this code works fine till it gets absolute paths(URLs or absolute directory file path). It starts crying when given relative path, so I'll suggest you to correct image src values in html before passing it in converter method.

Hope this helps you.
