PDF Library

Posted 02 January 2008 - 08:43 AM

Hello, all.

I am currently working on a project that requires me to create some reports for a client app. We have decided that the reports will be exported in PDF format, and I am looking for a good PDF library for C# - does anyone have any recommendations?

I've already tried iTextSharp, but it's not quite what I'm looking for.

Thanks,
Girasquid

Since you haven't really outlined what it is that you are looking for IN the library, I will just show you a page full of PDF libraries for C# and you can go to each website (via its link) and read up on what it can do for you. Then you can choose which one fits your application.

Open Source PDF Libraries in C#

Hopefully you find one that you like. :)

Thanks Martyr2 - as it turns out, I got iTextSharp working, and don't actually need any other PDF libraries now.
