Basics of Pdf

Hello,

I have been playing around with the aspose.Pdf product and have a few questions.
I use VS2003 vb.net & SQL2000.

I have been trying the basic examples with xml.
The only way I can get it to work is by using a xml file formatted as stated in the examples. If I call on VB.net to generate an xml file from a dataset the pdf examples does not work.

how do I overcome this issue?
Does aspose.pdf generate xml files from datasets that it can read?

Thanks
Craig

Dear Ceaig,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

Please make sure the xml you generated :

1) cab be loaded correctly by .Net;
2) match the Aspose.Pdf’s xml format;

You can save your xml to a file and see if it is correct.

Tommy,
My xml file is below. What format changes do I make to it so that aspose.pdf will read it.
I am not very proficient with xml. this is the xml file that my vb.net generates.


<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<NewDataSet>
<Table>
<Date>2005-01-05T00:00:00.0000000+11:00</Date>
<Product>Semo </Product>
<Time>12:47:00</Time>
<Sample>Bulk Outloading </Sample>
<Code> </Code>
<Bin> </Bin>
<Protein>9.3</Protein>
<Moisture>14.7</Moisture>
<Invoice>O1011398 </Invoice>
<Customer>Rinoldi </Customer>
</Table>
</NewDataSet>

Thanks

Dear Craig,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

Your xml does not match Aspose.Pdf’s format. You need to write a XSLT file to transform it. Please refer to Hello World - XML and XSLT.
