GetHeight method on a table breaks its rendering

Hi everyone,

when I build a table with colspans and rowspans greater than one and apply the method GetHeight() on my table, the rendering of the table is broken. See for instance the code below in C#/.NET 3.5.
Am I missing something here ? Please help use, it would be of great benefit for us to have this feature working.


public void TestMethod1()
var table = new Table();
table.DefaultCellBorder = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.BorderInfo((int)Aspose.Pdf.Generator.BorderSide.All, 0.3F);
var widths = "25 50 35 50 ";
table.ColumnWidths = widths;

var row1 = table.Rows.Add();

var row2 = table.Rows.Add();

var row3 = table.Rows.Add();

var row4 = table.Rows.Add();

var pdf = new Pdf();
var section = pdf.Sections.Add();

public static void AddCell(Row row, string text, int colSpan, int rowSpan)
var cell = row.Cells.Add(text);
cell.RowSpan = rowSpan;
cell.ColumnsSpan = colSpan;
