Automated text cropping within a table cell

Hi everyone,

I searched the doc and this forum but I could not find a quick way to crop the text within a table cell.

Actually, I do have a table with Fixed column widths and Fixed row heights, what I would like is to have my cell content (a simple string on one line) automatically cropped if too large for my cell.

Is there a direct way to do this using aspose pdf ?

Hi Olivier,

Thanks for your patience.

Recently we have introduced Table, Row, Cell etc classes under Aspose.Pdf namespace and in order to resolve your issue, I would suggest you to please try using the new classes. Please take a look over the following code snippet based on new classes and for your reference, I have also attached the resultant PDF which I have generated over my end.


Document doc = new

Page page = doc.Pages.Add();

//Instantiate a table object

Aspose.Pdf.Table tab1 = new Aspose.Pdf.Table();

//Add the table in paragraphs collection of the desired section


//Set with column widths of the table

tab1.ColumnWidths = "50 50 50";

//Set default cell border using BorderInfo object

tab1.DefaultCellBorder = new Aspose.Pdf.BorderInfo(Aspose.Pdf.BorderSide.All, 0.1F);

//Set table border using another customized BorderInfo object

tab1.Border = new Aspose.Pdf.BorderInfo(Aspose.Pdf.BorderSide.All, 1F);

//Create MarginInfo object and set its left, bottom, right and top margins

Aspose.Pdf.MarginInfo margin = new Aspose.Pdf.MarginInfo();

margin.Top = 5f;

margin.Left = 5f;

margin.Right = 5f;

margin.Bottom = 5f;

//Set the default cell padding to the MarginInfo object

tab1.DefaultCellPadding = margin;

//Create rows in the table and then cells in the rows

Aspose.Pdf.Row row1 = tab1.Rows.Add();




TextFragment mytext = new TextFragment("col3 with large text string");

//row1.Cells.Add("col3 with large text string to be placed inside cell");


row1.Cells[2].IsWordWrapped = false;

//row1.Cells[2].Paragraphs[0].FixedWidth= 80;

Aspose.Pdf.Row row2 = tab1.Rows.Add();




//Save the Pdf
