I want to save the pdf file. I do not want to download that file although I want to save that file inro database. below code is pdf creation code now how can I save that pdf file into the database. I do not want to upload that file with file uploader actually I want to save that file directly in database.

What I have tried:

string attachment = "attachment; filename=" + "abc" + ".pdf";
                Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment);
                Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
                StringWriter s_tw = new StringWriter();
                HtmlTextWriter h_textw = new HtmlTextWriter(s_tw);
                h_textw.AddStyleAttribute("font-size", "7pt");
                h_textw.AddStyleAttribute("color", "Black");
                Panel1.RenderControl(h_textw);//Name of the Panel
                Document doc = new Document();
                doc = new Document(PageSize.A4, 5, 5, 15, 5);
                FontFactory.GetFont("Times New Roman", 14);
                PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, Response.OutputStream);
                StringReader s_tr = new StringReader(s_tw.ToString());
                HTMLWorker html_worker = new HTMLWorker(doc);

Solution 3

string contentType = Response.ContentType;

using (Stream fs = Request.InputStream)
using (BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(fs))
//byte[] bytes = br.ReadBytes(fs.pdfDoc);
byte[] bytes = br.ReadBytes((Int32)fs.Length);
using (MySqlConnection con1 = new MySqlConnection("conectionstring"))
string query1 = "insert into tblFiles(clientid1,username,Name,ContentType,Data) values (@clientid1,@username,@Name, @ContentType, @Data)";
using (MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(query1))
cmd.Connection = con;
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@clientid1", TextBox1.Text);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@username", Session["username"].ToString());
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", filename);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ContentType", contentType);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Data", pdfDoc);

I think you need to use: cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Data", bytes);
