Problems with rowspan


I would like to use Aspose.PDF for Java for generating PDFs. So far I like Aspose.PDf, but I have a problem with rowspan in tables. I would like to use rowspan, but when I set it to 2 no row would be spanned, and to 3 only two rows are spanned. Furthermore the spanning starts at the cell under the cell with the defined rowspan. Do you have a solution for this problem?



Hi Katrin,

Thanks for using our products.

Can you please share the code snippet and the output file being generated over your end, so that we can test the scenario at our end. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Pdf pdf = new Pdf();
Section section = pdf.getSections().add();
Table table = new Table(section);
table.setColumnWidths(“100, 100, 100, 100”);
Row pdfRow;
Cell pdfCell;
for (int rowIdx = 0; rowIdx < 8; rowIdx++) {
pdfRow = table.getRows().add();
for (int colIdx = 0; colIdx < 4; colIdx++) {
pdfCell = pdfRow.getCells().add(“test”);
if(rowIdx == 2 && colIdx == 2){
BorderInfo borderInfo = new BorderInfo(BorderSide.All.getValue());

In row/cell 2, 2 the rowspan starts at row 3.
