Background

As a computer programmer, sometimes you may need to automatically create and edit PDF document. Here I present you a free PDF processing library (Spire.PDF) which just meets the need.

Introduction

This library is very powerful and easy to use. Check the sample code below. Just three line of code, it creates a PDF document with one blank page. See, it is very easy. The method Add will just add a blank page into the PDF document.

 

After adding a blank page, you should add some content to the page. Unless a blank page is what you want. You can add text, image, shapes, barcode, table, grid and all other stuff you want to page of PDF document.

These are some methods that the library provides:

page.Canvas.DrawString()

Add text to page.

Class: PdfUnidimensionalBarcode

Draw(PdfPageBase page, PointF location);

Class: PdfTable

Draw(page, new PointF(0, y));

This library also supports watermark, encryption, digital signature, conversion to many file format, merge documents, split document, extracting text and image…. In a word, you can manipulate PDF files easily and flexibly using this library.

For example:
