Converting from Generator to Document

Trying to transition from the Generator to Document namespace I’m having trouble knowing what to replace some items with:

   public bool GenerateIntroPageForAuditTrail(DataTable data, string resultLocation, string name)
        bool _result = false;

            if (!string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(resultLocation) && data != null && data.Rows.Count > 0)
                if (File.Exists(resultLocation))

                // Instantiate a Pdf instance
                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf doc = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Pdf();

                // Create a section in the Pdf instance

                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Section section = doc.Sections.Add();
                section.IsLandscape = true;
                section.PageInfo.PageHeight = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.PageSize.A3Height;
                section.PageInfo.PageWidth = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.PageSize.A3Width;

            //What I sthe replace ment for Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Text 

                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Text theader = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Text(section);

          //What I sthe replace ment for Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Segment 

                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Segment seg1 = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Segment(theader);
                seg1.Content = name;
                seg1.TextInfo.FontSize = 32.0f;
                seg1.TextInfo.Alignment = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.AlignmentType.FullJustify;
                seg1.TextInfo.IsTrueTypeFontBold = true;
                theader.Margin.Top = 100f;
                theader.Margin.Left = 250f;
                theader.Margin.Right = 250f;
                theader.Margin.Bottom = 50f;

                //seg1.TextInfo.FontName = "TimesRoman";

                // Create a Table object
                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Table table = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Table();
                table.Margin.Top = 10f;
                //table.Margin.Left = 150f;
                //table.Margin.Bottom = 150f;
                //table.Margin.Right = 150f;

                //table.IsRowBroken = false;
                table.Alignment = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.AlignmentType.Center;
                table.ColumnAdjustment = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.ColumnAdjustmentType.AutoFitToWindow;

                table.Border = borderInfo;

                // Add the Table object in the paragraphs collection of the section

                // Set column widths of the table
                table.ColumnWidths = "400 400";//"40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40";

                // Set default cell border of the table using BorderInfo object
                table.DefaultCellBorder = borderInfo;

                // Import data into the Table object from the DataTable created above
                table.ImportDataTable(data, false, 0, 0, data.Rows.Count, data.Columns.Count);

             //What I sthe replace ment for Aspose.Pdf.Generator.textformats 

                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.TextInfo textformats = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.TextInfo();

                textformats.IsTrueTypeFontBold = true;
                textformats.BackgroundColor = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Color("White");
                textformats.Alignment = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.AlignmentType.Left;
                textformats.FontSize = 24.0f;

                Aspose.Pdf.Generator.MarginInfo cmargin = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.MarginInfo();
                cmargin.Top = 10f;
                cmargin.Left = 10f;
                cmargin.Right = 10f;
                cmargin.Bottom = 10f;

                foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Row item in table.Rows)
                    // Iterate through all cells in the row and set their background color to blue
                    foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Cell curCell in item.Cells)
                        curCell.DefaultCellTextInfo = textformats;
                        curCell.IsWordWrapped = true;
                        curCell.VerticalAlignment = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.VerticalAlignmentType.Center;
                        curCell.Padding = cmargin;

                // Save the Pdf

                _result = true;

        catch (Exception ex)

        return _result;


Thank you for contacting support.

PDF document object is initiated as under:

Document document = new Document();

Moreover, now the PDF document contains Pages instead of sections, so you may add a page as:

Page page = document.Pages.Add(); 

you may set the height and width of page like:

page.PageInfo.Height = PageSize.A3.Height;
page.PageInfo.Width = PageSize.A3.Width;

Furthermore, kindly visit below documentation articles for your kind reference.

We hope this will be helpful. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
