I want to create a pdf of the current xamarin form. I used pdf sharp and itext7 to implement it but unable to do it.
but below code only capture the text of xamarin, not the image. i just want to save currently viewed xamarin form to pdf.
I am struggling with this for a few weeks.

What I have tried:

var pdf = PDFManager.GeneratePDFFromView(ss);
       string localFilename = Guid.NewGuid().ToString() + ".pdf";
       string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData) + localFilename;
       DependencyService.Get<IPdfSave>().Save(pdf, localFilename);
       await Launcher.OpenAsync(new OpenFileRequest
           File = new ReadOnlyFile(path)

I guess it depends on what "ss" is pointing to. Or that you're not using Path.Combine. Or you're writing to a different file than reading. Or not.

ss is the stacklayout's name

my code is working well when I have the only labels but I add an image, it doesn't add an image to pdf and only convert text to pdf

The layout of the visuals has to be in the "updated state" for actual Height and Width when capturing. Can't tell what state the visuals are in.
