Exporting to PDF via WebRequest and Stream

Hi,

I would like to export a webpage as image in PDF. Tried this from webresponse via stream. I use AsposePDF 9.1. I use Import() of Aspose PDF Generator. I am not getting the stream added to the final output PDF.

Please let me know the cause and ways to fix this issue.

Code

Pdf pdf = new Pdf();
HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.google.com");
myRequest.Method = "GET";
WebResponse myResponse = myRequest.GetResponse();
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(myResponse.GetResponseStream());
pdf.Import(sr);
sr.Close();
pdf.Save("C:/AsposePDFTest/WebPageOutput.pdf");

Thanks

Hi Omnath,


Thanks for contacting support.

In order to convert HTML contents to PDF format, please follow the instructions specified over Convert HTML to PDF Format.

If your requirement is to place HTML contents as image, you may first convert the HTML to PDF format, save the output in Image format and then convert the image back to PDF format. For further details, please visit

Hi,


Thanks for the update. My request was for a webpage to PDF via Webresponse and Stream.
I am trying the same functionality with some more changes in my previous code. I will check and get back.

Thanks.

Hi Nayyer,


I did some more changes in the code and tried the webpage to PDF conversion via Webresponse and Stream. But I did not get the output as expected. I even tried with Aspose Tech article example @ http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/pdfnet/Convert+HTML+to+PDF+Format (Section: Convert Web page to PDF). Issue observed is that pdf output contents is not appearing as in url passed. I see a complete mis-alignment in the pdf content when tried for a sample url (google.com).

Please provide your input.

Thanks,
Omnath

Hi Omnath,

Thanks for using our API's.

The HTML to PDF conversion is a complex feature and with every new release, we are working on making this feature robust enough so that it can cater most of HTML standards/tags etc. I have also observed the formatting issues when converting www.google.com to PDF format. However, if you are facing an issue while converting any of your HTML files to PDF format, please share the resource file so that we can further look into this matter. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Hi Nayyer,


Thanks. Can you please tell the workaround for fixing this issues in webpage (like www.google.com) conversion to pdf? Will there be a new version of Aspose PDF which can fix this if no workaround is available at this point.

Thanks,
Omnath

I was referring the code related to Aspose PDF API only. Thanks
