    Thumbs up Show all the .pdf contents in to a grid view or any other control ...

    Hi all,

    I am able to read a .pdf file and show it on a text box.... But my requirement is that i shld be able to show all the content and if any images in to the .pdf file in the o/p.... Please help me out... Which control will support for this work...

    I have written the below code...

    Here is the link for dll --- http://sourceforge.net/projects/itextsharp/


    Code:
    Imports System.IO
    Imports System.Text
    Imports iTextSharp.text.pdf
    Imports iTextSharp.text
    Imports Read_Write_PDF_Files
    Imports iTextSharp
    Imports System.Collections.Generic
    Imports iTextSharp.text.pdf.parser
    Imports iTextSharp.text.xml
    
    
    
    ' Dim PdfReader As New System.IO.StreamReader("E:\PDF program in vb.net\Read Write PDF Files\sample.pdf")
    
            Dim text As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()
            'Dim pdfReader1 As PdfReader = New PdfReader("E:\PDF program in vb.net\Read Write PDF Files\sample.pdf")
            Dim pdfReader1 As PdfReader = New PdfReader(" C:\Users\aseema\Desktop\UGSI - URL Access Request Process.pdf")
    
            Dim page As Integer
            For page = 1 To pdfReader1.NumberOfPages Step page + 1
                Dim strategy As ITextExtractionStrategy = New SimpleTextExtractionStrategy()
                Dim currentText As String = PdfTextExtractor.GetTextFromPage(pdfReader1, page, strategy)
    
                currentText = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(ASCIIEncoding.Convert(Encoding.Default, Encoding.UTF8, Encoding.Default.GetBytes(currentText)))
    
                'text.Append(currentText)
                TextBox1.Text = currentText
                'DataGridView1.Rows.Add(line.Split(","))
    
                ' DataGridView1.Rows.Add(New String() {currentText})
                '   currentText = "djjoiduieropire"
                text.Append(currentText)
            Next
            pdfReader1.Close()
    
            Return

    add a .dll -- iTextSharp

    You'd have to buy a license for the format of the PDF file. Unless you know someone at ADOBE

    Nope.

    You're already using iTextSharp. All you need to do now is use its libraries and functionalities to display the control. You cannot display it otherwise, as the VB / C# controls have no idea of PDF. Even if you were to try a RichTextBox, you would still have to convert the PDF content to RTF.

    My advice would be to interrogate all iTextSharp's capabilities.

    * I do actually have a lot of experience with iTextSharp, just in case you're wondering Good luck!
