Table ColumnAdjustment and Cell text with HtmlTagSupport crashes


If I create a Table and add Cells containing Text with HtmlTagSupport I get an ArgumentNullException in “Direct-to-file” mode when setting table’s ColumnAdjustment to AutoFitContent.

Code sample (C#):
FileStream fs = new FileStream(output, FileMode.Create);
Pdf pdf = new Pdf(fs);

Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Section section = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Section();

Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Table table = new Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Table();
table.ColumnAdjustment = ColumnAdjustmentType.AutoFitToContent; // throws ArgumentNullException
for (int iRow = 0; iRow < 10; iRow++)
Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Row row = table.Rows.Add();

for (int iCol = 0; iCol < 5; iCol++)
Aspose.Pdf.Generator.Cell cell = row.Cells.Add();
Text cellText = new Text(“Text”) { IsHtmlTagSupported = true };

try { section.AddParagraph(table); } catch { }


Is this the desired behaviour or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for support!

Hello codewarior,

Thanks for your reply! I recognized that the mentioned problem still there in the current version 9.1.0 of Aspose.Pdf for .NET. How do I know in which release of Aspose.Pdf for .NET the bug PDFNEWNET-36410 is corrected?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Ralf,

Thanks for your patience. We have fixed your reported issue in new DOM package. Please check following code to create table with ColumnAdjustment and HTML string. Hopefully it will help you to accomplish the task.

string outFile = “36965.pdf”;<o:p></o:p>

Document doc = new Document();

Page page = doc.Pages.Add();

Aspose.Pdf.Table table = new Aspose.Pdf.Table();

table.ColumnAdjustment = ColumnAdjustment.AutoFitToContent;

for (int iRow = 0; iRow < 10; iRow++)


Aspose.Pdf.Row row = table.Rows.Add();

for (int iCol = 0; iCol < 5; iCol++)

{ Aspose.Pdf.Cell cell = row.Cells.Add(); HtmlFragment cellText = new HtmlFragment("Text"); cell.Paragraphs.Add(cellText); }
