Table with more than 8 columns are not being display on pdf page

Hi,
I am creating pdf document by importing table having 10 to 11 columns but On a page, only first 6 columns are being displayed and rest of columns are not getting displayed. I am trying to search its solution but not succeeded.

Please provide the help.

Thanks,
Sudhanshu

Thanks for contacting support.

In order to keep table on the relevant page, you need to set ColumnAdjustment property of the table to AutoFitToWindow OR you can also specify the ColumnWidths property of the table according to total width of the page. Please check following code snippet where I have added a table with 11 columns inside a page by setting ColumnAdjustment to AutoFitToWindow.

Document doc = new Document();
Page page = doc.Pages.Add();
page.PageInfo.Width = PageSize.PageLetter.Width;
page.PageInfo.Height = PageSize.PageLetter.Height;
var Table = new Table()
{
  ColumnAdjustment = ColumnAdjustment.AutoFitToWindow,
  DefaultCellBorder = new BorderInfo(BorderSide.All)
};
var Row = Table.Rows.Add();
var Cell1 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell2 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell3 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell4 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell5 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell6 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell7 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell8 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell9 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell10 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
var Cell11 = Row.Cells.Add("Cell");
page.Paragraphs.Add(Table);
doc.Save(dataDir + "tableAlignment.pdf");

For your reference, an output obtained from above code is also attached. In case you face any other issue, please share your sample document along with the code snippet, so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Hi Asad,
Thanks for quick reply.
I have set the ColumnAdjustment to AutoFitToWindow , now each column is displaying properly but table
content and header is not aligned properly.
I am attaching here sampe file of PDF document , we have to set table content same as in pdf file but I am unable to set the width of columns and alignment as same.

Below are the code that i have done as POC

DataTable dt = new DataTable(“Employee”);
dt.Columns.Add(“ID”, typeof(Int32));
dt.Columns.Add(“Employee Name”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“Gender”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“Address”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“City”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“Country”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“Pin”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“District”, typeof(string));
dt.Columns.Add(“Area”, typeof(string));

        //Add 2 rows into the DataTable object programmatically          

        for (int i = 0; i < 150; i++)
        {
            DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr[0] = (i + 1);
            dr[1] = "Mary Miller " + (i + 1);
            dr[2] = "Female";
            dr[3] = "Sopra steria Pvt ltd";
            dr[4] = "Noida";
            dr[5] = "France India";
            dr[6] = "201012";
            dr[7] = "Ghaziabad";
            dr[8] = "Noida" + (i + 1);
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
        }

        // The path to the documents directory.
        string dataDir = Path.GetFullPath(GetDataDir_Data() + @"Content\TempFiles\");

        Document document = new Document();

        t2.TextState.FontSize = 8;

        TextFragment t3 = new TextFragment("Last update: " + DateTime.Now.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy"));

Thanks for writing back.

Please check following code snippet, where I have generated a PDF with aligned table after modifying some lines of your code snippet. For your reference, I have attached and output as well, which was generated by below code snippet.
