Hi all,
I am unable to display 'Text Box' in pdf while converting html string to pdf using HTMLWorker(iTextSharp.dll)


Document pdfDoc = new Document();
iTextSharp.text.html.simpleparser.HTMLWorker hw = new
string sttt = "<input type='text' name='firstname' value='Hello/>";
hw.Parse(new StringReader(sttt ));

Not informative. What does it mean, "I'm unable"? And how it is, "display Text Box"? What it should be? PDF is not HTML...

Ya fine, is there any specific reason behind it?

If you want to add a text box to your PDF file, then have a look here:[^]


I found the reason why it is not working: your HTML code is not well-formed, because the value attribute is not closed: there's an apostrophe missing.
Try this:
string sttt = "<input type='text' name='firstname' value='Hello'/>";

That's fine ProgramFOX, and thank you first of all,

Here the problem is, I want to add text box through html code. Because I am converting html code to pdf using HTMLParser.

Here I am able to parse total my html code into pdf except this text box so.....

I'm sorry, but I'm afraid there's a way to create the text box from the input tag, because I find nothing about it in Google. I only found the way as described in the link. Again, I'm sorry.
What you can try: use a HTML parser such as the HtmlAgilityPack, and parse some input tags from the HTML, and make sure that they're added as described in the link.

Hi ProgramFOX,
Actually I used HTMLWorker which belongs to iTextSharp.dll.
It's open source dll to convert any page into pdf format. Using this dll I am unable to add textbox to pdf.(Me to also searched lot of sites in Google to solve this issue.)
