Pagination issues with HTML string

Postby rambach » Tue Jun 27, 2017 12:32 pm

I have an HTML string that needs to fit on multiple pages. The below code is what I am using. I have tried every combination for the format.Layout and format.Break options with no luck. The string gets added to the page but just truncates off the bottom and doesn't paginate to the next page. What am I doing wrong or what code am I missing?




Code: Select all
PdfDocument Doc= new PdfDocument();
        PdfNewPage page = Doc.Pages.Add(PdfPageSize.Note) as PdfNewPage;


        PdfFont font = new PdfFont(PdfFontFamily.Helvetica,2,PdfFontStyle.Regular);
        PdfBrush brush = PdfBrushes.Black;

        PdfHTMLTextElement kbContent = new PdfHTMLTextElement(lblHTMLcontent.Text, font, brush);

        kbContent.TextAlign = Spire.Pdf.Graphics.TextAlign.Left;

        PdfMetafileLayoutFormat format = new PdfMetafileLayoutFormat();
        format.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;
        format.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;
 
        kbContent.Draw(page, new RectangleF(0, 0, page.GetClientSize().Width, page.GetClientSize().Height), format);

Dear rambach,

Thanks for your inquiry.
I have tested the scenario you mentioned with Spire.PDF Pack(Hot Fix) Version:3.9.181, and the string could be placed on next page if the one page doesn't fit it. Please use the latest version and have a try. If the issue still exists, please provide us with the HTML for testing.

Thanks,
Betsy

It still just never creates the additional pages and truncates the string. How does it know where to break the HTML string?

Dear rambach,

Thanks for waiting.
Due to the complexity of the issue, we need more time to investigate it. Considering this situation, there are other workarounds which might help you solve your issue quickly.
1) use LoadFromHTML method in Spire.PDF.
https://www.e-iceblue.com/Tutorials/Spi ... rself.html
2) use New Plugin and Spire.PDF.
https://www.e-iceblue.com/Tutorials/Spi ... lugin.html
3) use Paragraph.AppendHTML method in Spire.Doc, as Spire.Doc also supports converting html string to PDF.
Hope this helps. And once there is any progress about the issue you submitted, we will let you know.

Sincerely,
Betsy
