I'm making a windows form for a friend who delivers packages. I want to transfer his current paper form, into a PDF with the iTextSharp library.
What I need:
I want the table to have a little headline, "Company name" for example, where the text should be a little smaller than the text input from the windows form. Currently I'm using cells and was wondering if I can use 2 different font sizes within the same cell?
What I have:
table.AddCell("Static headline" + Chunk.NEWLINE + richTextBox1.Text);
var normalFont = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA, 9); var boldFont = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA_BOLD, 12); table.AddCell("Static headline", boldFont + Chunk.NEWLINE + richTextBox1.Text, normalFont);
You're passing a
String and a
Font to the
AddCell() method. That's not going to work. You need the
AddCell() method that takes a
Paragraph object as parameter. In iText 7
Paragraph consists of different
Text snippets that can have different fonts and sizes:
Cell cell = new Cell(); Paragraph p = new Paragraph(); Text t1 = new Text("Some bold text, "); t1.setFont(PdfFontFactory.createFont(FontConstants.HELVETICA_BOLD)); t1.setFontSize(9); p.add(t1); Text t2 = new Text("some normal text"); t2.setFont(PdfFontFactory.createFont(FontConstants.HELVETICA)); t2.setFontSize(12); p.add(t2); cell.add(p);
If you want an iText for C# example, you'll discover that it is very easy to port the Java to C# as the terminology is identical.
