Usage animation of the PDF library

👨‍💻 Design PDF documents using C# and employ a code-only approach. Utilize your version control system to its fullest potential.

🧱 Compose PDF document with a range of powerful and predictable structural elements, such as text, image, border, table, and many more.

⚙️ Utilize a comprehensive layout engine, specifically designed for PDF document generation and paging support.

📖 Write code using concise and easy-to-understand C# Fluent API. Utilize IntelliSense to quickly discover available options.

🔗 Don't be limited to any proprietary scripting language or format. Follow your experience and leverage all modern C# features.

⌛ Save time thanks to a hot-reload capability, allowing real-time PDF document preview without code recompilation.

Simplicity is the key

How easy it is to start and prototype with QuestPDF? Really easy thanks to its minimal API! Please analyse the code below that generates basic PDF document:

using QuestPDF.Fluent;
using QuestPDF.Helpers;
using QuestPDF.Infrastructure;

// code in your main method
Document.Create(container =>
{
    container.Page(page =>
    {
        page.Size(PageSizes.A4);
        page.Margin(2, Unit.Centimetre);
        page.Background(Colors.White);
        page.DefaultTextStyle(x => x.FontSize(20));
        
        page.Header()
            .Text("Hello PDF!")
            .SemiBold().FontSize(36).FontColor(Colors.Blue.Medium);
        
        page.Content()
            .PaddingVertical(1, Unit.Centimetre)
            .Column(x =>
            {
                x.Spacing(20);
                
                x.Item().Text(Placeholders.LoremIpsum());
                x.Item().Image(Placeholders.Image(200, 100));
            });
        
        page.Footer()
            .AlignCenter()
            .Text(x =>
            {
                x.Span("Page ");
                x.CurrentPageNumber();
            });
    });
})
.GeneratePdf("hello.pdf");

Version 2023.5.0
- Simplified development loop by introducing cross-platform methods: GeneratePdfAndShow() and GenerateXpsAndShow()
- New shared image API: the ability to define a single image resource that is used in multiple places in the document without increasing its size
- New DocumentSettings API: target image raster DPI - now, the library automatically resizes all images to achieve desired DPI (dots-per-inch) resolution. It allows for minimizing output file size
- New DocumentSettings API: target image compression quality - the ability to specify the balance between size and quality for images in the document. It allows for minimizing output file size
- Refactoring: moved the PdfA setting from the DocumentMetadata class to the DocumentSettings class
- Improved Image API by providing additional FluentA API methods
- Improvement: the GenerateImage element now provides the expected image resolution, abstracting away the physical area size and target image DPI
