Issue Converting HTML to PDF


I am not able to convert the attached HTML to PDF using Aspose.PDF. The converted PDF file is not retaining any formatting specified in the HTML tag.

To rule out issues with a malformed HTML I used the same file in several other online conversion tool and the file converted correctly to PDF without any formatting issues.

Here is the code(using Aspose.PDF version 7.1):

Dim strHTML As String = File.ReadAllText("C:\testingRPT.html")

Dim oPDF As Pdf.Generator.Pdf = New Pdf.Generator.Pdf

Dim license As Aspose.Pdf.License = New Aspose.Pdf.License



oPDF.IsLandscape = True


Any help is truely appreciated.


Note: The file extension is renamed from .html to .txt to allow for uploading to the forum.

HI Seddesh,

Thanks for your patience. You may use new DOM approach for HTML to PDF conversion. Please try following code snippet, it will fix the issue.

HtmlLoadOptions options = new HtmlLoadOptions();<o:p></o:p>

// use the new conversion engine<o:p></o:p>

options.UseNewConversionEngine = true;<o:p></o:p>

// load HTML file<o:p></o:p>

Document pdfDocument = new Document(“Input.html”, options);

// save output as PDF format<o:p></o:p>

pdfDocument.Save(myDir + “Output.pdf”);
