Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf API is gone

Hi, we have run into an issue after upgrade from older versions of apsose.pdf to latest 17.10.
The old Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf API is gone in 17.10 and also the old xml template format to build pdf docs.
Old format
New format

This is the the xml format that we used in the in the Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf API
AsposeXMLTemplate.zip (1.1 KB)

Do you have migration information to build up the same document with the new DOM API?
Best Regards

We are investigating your old XML template and require little time. We will get back to you soon.


Thanks for your patience.

We have tried to convert your XML template according to new DOM based structure, by following the XML Schema (.xsd) provided with the API and managed to produce similar output PDF document. Please check attached PDF document and XML (DOM) template. Regarding XML Schema, you can find it in XML folder, located in Aspose.Pdf installation directory. However for your convenience, we have attached XML Schema file as well.

Document doc = new Document();
doc.BindXml(dataDir + "AsposeXMLTemplate_DOM.xml");
doc.Save(dataDir + "AsposeXMLTemplate_DOM.pdf");

Aspose.Pdf.zip (1.6 KB)
AsposeXMLTemplate_DOM.zip (1.2 KB)
AsposeXMLTemplate_DOM.pdf (3.4 KB)

You can migrate your existing XML templates to DOM based XML structure, by following the element sequence in XML Schema. In case you face any issue, please feel free to let us know.

Hi I have started with porting from generator to DOM and I need help information on how to be able to do simulate or alternativ to generators Replaceable symbols.
We use the following:
#$NL Line break in Cell
#$UNICODE(160) Non-breaking space
What can we do to simulate this in DOM xml?
Best Regards

Thanks for your inquiry.

Would you please share a sample XML template where you are using these symbols and they are not taking any effect. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Hi, I have uploaded the pdf and also the dom xml that shows the problems…

  1. #$UNICODE(160) is ignored and shows in the pdf
    2)#$NL is ignored and shows in the pdf
  2. IsKeptWithNext Table attribute is ignored and the table shows in two different pages.
    This used to work in aspose.Generator.
