Giving reference of css on local drive or online

Hi All,

I have created a console application(C#) in Visual Studio and I have test folder on my C drive.

I have also kept a html file on my C drive and my code reads the html file and generates a pdf file at the same location.

I issue is that I have also kept a test.css file and I am trying to use this in my pdf generation but it is not working.

Path : C:\Test

I already tried to add reference of the css file in my html file like this -

< link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="../styles.css" > OR 
 < link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="C:\Test\styles.css" > OR 
< link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="https://mysite/styles.css" >

but none of this works, please help


I would like to share with you that you can use any css file while converting an HTML file to a PDF file. I have attached a sample HTML, CSS file, generated output file and the sample code to work with it.

        HtmlLoadOptions options = new HtmlLoadOptions(@"D:\Sample\");
        // Load HTML file
        Document doc = new Document(@"D:\Sample\source.html", options);
        // Save HTML file
        doc.Save(@"D:\Sample\Aspose_17.11.pdf"); (65.2 KB)

For further information on HTML to PDF conversion, please visit this documentation article for your kind reference.

I hope this will be helpful. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Getting this error -
At most 4 text fragments can be added in evaluation mode.Does this mean that I can have only 4 style attributes ??
