In my code i try to download the pdf file of my view by clicking on Export button but unable to download it.
I want to download the view same as i see on my browser.
I installed iTextSharp.pdf for downloading pdf.

IMP:
1. I create a action method name GetSelectedTemplate where i get data and fetch that all data to the GetSelectedTemplate.cshtml view.
2. in that view when i click on export button i want to download the pdf (same as view -> all data and design (like a scrrenshot)) of view.
I write Pdf downloading code in another action method "Export".

What I have tried:

ASP.NET
Controller: <pre>[HttpGet]
		public async Task<ActionResult> GetSelectedTemplate(int TempId)
		{
			JobSeeker objJ = new JobSeeker();
			BALJobSeeker objBAL = new BALJobSeeker();
			List<JobSeeker> jobSeekers = new List<JobSeeker>();
			objJ.TemplateId = TempId;
			SqlDataReader dr = await objBAL.TemplateNameDetails(objJ);
			// Retrieve lists from session
			ViewBag.BasicList = HttpContext.Session["BasicList"];
			ViewBag.QualificationList = HttpContext.Session["QualificationList"];
			ViewBag.EmployementList = HttpContext.Session["EmployementList"];
			ViewBag.ProjectList = HttpContext.Session["ProjectList"];
			ViewBag.CertificationList = HttpContext.Session["CertificationList"];
			ViewBag.SkillsExperienceList = HttpContext.Session["SkillsExperienceList"];
			// Retrieve the objective value from the query string
			string objective = Request.QueryString["ProfileSummary"];
			// Pass ObjectiveBag data to another controller through the TempData.
			//TempData["ObjectiveBag"] = objective;
			ViewBag.ObjectiveBag = TempData["ObjectiveBag"];
			if (await dr.ReadAsync())
			{
				string templateName = dr["TemplateName"].ToString();
				if (templateName == "Resume_Template_1")
				{
					return View("GetSelectedTemplate");
				}
				else if (templateName == "Resume_Template_3")
				{
					return View("GetSelectedTemplate2");
				}
				else if(templateName == "Resume_Template_2")
				{
					return View("GetSelectedTemplate3");
				}
				else
				{
					return HttpNotFound();
				}
			}
			return View();
		}
		[HttpPost]
		[ValidateInput(false)]
		public FileResult Export(string PdfHtml)
		{
			using (MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream())
			{
				using (StringReader sr = new StringReader(PdfHtml))
				{
					Document pdfDoc = new Document(PageSize.A4, 10f, 10f, 100f, 0f);
					PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, stream);
					pdfDoc.Open();
					XMLWorkerHelper.GetInstance().ParseXHtml(writer, pdfDoc, sr);
					pdfDoc.Close();
				}
				return File(stream.ToArray(), "application/pdf", "Resume.pdf");
			}
		}
