Then you should go through the iTextSharp thing I suggested. It's an OPEN SOURCE. You can go ahead and play around with the code.

1 solution

Well, have a look here:
Pdfizer, a dumb HTML to PDF converter, in C#[^]
Programmatically Convert Documents to PDFs the Easy Way[^]

Then there is iTextsharp:
CP result on iTextsharp articles[^], few of them:
Creating PDF Tables using C# (.NET 2.0) and iTextSharp[^]
Tutorials on creating PDF files using C# 2.0[^]

I don want use any of the other software or a third party tool to do.
If you don't want to use any third party then you won't be able to do it. .NET does not have any control or class to do the same for you.

He doesn't want to use an existing library.
Yes, I am surprised to see that he has no idea about the project and doesn't want to use a library. :omg:
He has not even shown that he did some research on the topic.

Oh! I missed answer to that line. If he doesn't want to then he won't be able to. Let me update. THanks.
