Aspose PDF Java - Create PDF from scratch

Hi guys,


Id like to ask how I can create a PDF from scratch? Created PDF contains text in 2 columns and an image at the bottom. I have the text values and image directory stored in string variables already, but I do not know how to create a PDF from them.

Regards,

Hi Junmil,


Thanks for your interest in our API’s.

In order to add text in two columns, please try using following code snippet. For your reference, I have also attached the output generated over my end.

[Java]

com.aspose.pdf.Document doc = new
com.aspose.pdf.Document();<o:p></o:p>

// specify the left margin info for the PDF file

doc.getPageInfo().getMargin().setLeft(40);

// specify the Right margin info for the PDF file

doc.getPageInfo().getMargin().setRight(40);

Page page = doc.getPages().add();

com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Graph graph1 = new com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Graph(500, 2);

// Add the line to paraphraphs collection of section object

page.getParagraphs().add(graph1);

//specify the coordinates for the line

float[] posArr = new float[] { 1, 2, 500, 2 };

com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Line l1 = new com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Line(posArr);

graph1.getShapes().add(l1);

//Create string variables with text containing html tags

String s = "" +

" How to Steer Clear of money scams</ "

+ "";

//Create text paragraphs containing HTML text

com.aspose.pdf.HtmlFragment heading_text = new com.aspose.pdf.HtmlFragment(s);

page.getParagraphs().add(heading_text);

com.aspose.pdf.FloatingBox box = new com.aspose.pdf.FloatingBox();

//Add four columns in the section

box.getColumnInfo().setColumnCount(2);

//Set the spacing between the columns

box.getColumnInfo().setColumnSpacing("5");

box.getColumnInfo().setColumnWidths("105 105");

TextFragment text1 = new TextFragment("By A Googler (The Official Google Blog)");

text1.getTextState().setFontSize(8);

text1.getTextState().setLineSpacing(2);

box.getParagraphs().add(text1);

text1.getTextState().setFontSize(10);

text1.getTextState().setFontStyle(com.aspose.pdf.FontStyles.Italic);

// Create a graphs object to draw a line

com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Graph graph2 = new com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Graph(50, 10);

// specify the coordinates for the line

float[] posArr2 = new float[] { 1, 10, 100, 10 };

com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Line l2 = new com.aspose.pdf.drawing.Line(posArr2);

graph2.getShapes().add(l2);

// Add the line to paragraphs collection of section object

box.getParagraphs().add(graph2);

TextFragment text2 = new TextFragment("Sed augue tortor, sodales id, luctus et, pulvinar ut, eros. Suspendisse vel dolor. Sed quam. Curabitur ut massa vitae eros euismod aliquam.

box.getParagraphs().add(text2);

page.getParagraphs().add(box);

//Save the Pdf

doc.save("c:/pdftest/Two_COlumnDocument.pdf");

Thanks so much for your sample codes, I’m currently tying and modifying it to create the expected PDF format for my application.
