I try the code for autogenerate pdf.
and my code is:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.IO;
using iTextSharp.text;
using iTextSharp.text.pdf;
using iTextSharp.text.html;
using iTextSharp.text.html.simpleparser;
using System.Text;

public partial class pdf : System.Web.UI.Page
    string Date, ReportTitle;
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    protected void btn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        lblSubTitle.Text = "nafisa";
        Response.Buffer = true;
        Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" + lblSubTitle.Text.Replace(" ", "_").Replace("<br />", "") + "_" + DateTime.Now.Date.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy") + ".pdf");
        StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
        HtmlTextWriter hw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);
        //gvReport.AllowPaging = false;
        ReportTitle = lblSubTitle.Text;
        Date = lblDate.Text;
        // string content = "<div align="center" style="font-family:verdana;font-size:13px"><span style="font-size:13px;">" + ReportTitle + "</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size:8px:font-weight:bold">" + sw.ToString() + "</span></div>";
        string content = "<div align="center" style="font-family:verdana;font-size:13px"><span style="font-size:16px:font-weight:bold;color:Maroon">CARE MEDIQUIP</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size:13px:font-weight:bold">" + ReportTitle + "</span><br /><br /><div align="right" style="font-family:verdana;font-size:11px"><strong>Date :</strong>" + Date + "</div><br />" + sw.ToString() + "</div>";

        StringReader sr = new StringReader(content);
        Document pdfDoc = new Document(PageSize.A3, 10f, 10f, 10f, 0f);
        HTMLWorker htmlparser = new HTMLWorker(pdfDoc);
        PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, Response.OutputStream);
        // htmlparser.Parse(lblSubTitle.Text);

I get the error
