Working with .NET PDF Tables using the PdfGrid model

17 Jan 202324 minutes to read

The Syncfusion .NET PDF library supports creating PDF tables or grids. The PDF table displays data from the data sources or by direct data binding in a tabular format. It is designed for high performance with advanced customization, styling, and formatting. Here you will see the creation of a PDF table using the PdfGrid model.

Creating a simple table

The PdfGrid allows you to create a table by entering the data manually or from an external data source.

Create a simple table from a data source

The DataSource can be a data set, data table, arrays or an IEnumerable object.

NOTE

In Silverlight, Windows store apps, and Xamarin, only the strongly typed IEnumerable objects are supported.

The following code sample illustrates how to create a simple table from a data source using the PdfGrid.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();

//Add a page.
PdfPage page = doc.Pages.Add();

//Create a PdfGrid.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E01", "Clay" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E02", "Thomas" });

//Assign data source.
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Draw the grid to the page of a PDF document.
pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10));

//Save the document.
doc.Save("Output.pdf");
//Close the document.
doc.Close(true);
'Create a new PDF document. 
Dim doc As PdfDocument = New PdfDocument()

'Add a page. 
Dim page As PdfPage = doc.Pages.Add()

'Create a PdfGrid. 
Dim pdfGrid As PdfGrid = New PdfGrid()

'Create a Datatable.
Dim dataTable As DataTable = New DataTable()

'Add columns to the DataTable. 
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID")
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name")

'Add rows to the DataTable. 
dataTable.Rows.Add(New Object() {"E01", "Clay"})
dataTable.Rows.Add(New Object() {"E02", "Thomas"})

'Assign data source. 
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable

'Draw grid to the page of PDF document.
pdfGrid.Draw(page, New PointF(10, 10))

'Save the document.
doc.Save("Output.pdf")
'Close the document. 
doc.Close(True)
//Create a new PDF document.

List<object> data = new List<object>();
Object row1 = new { ID = "E01", Name = "Clay" };
Object row2 = new { ID = "E02", Name = "Thomas" };

data.Add(row2);

//Add list to the IEnumerable.
IEnumerable<object> dataTable = data;
//Assign data source.
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Draw the grid to the page of a PDF document.
pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10));

//Save the PDF document into the stream.
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
await doc.SaveAsync(stream);
//Close the document.

Cell customization

PdfGridCell provides various direct options to customize the cells like ColumnSpan, RowSpan, text color, background color, image position and etc using PdfGridCellStyle.

The following code example illustrates how to customize the cell in the PdfGrid.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();

//Create the page.
PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();

//Create the parent grid.
PdfGrid parentPdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Add the rows.
PdfGridRow row1 = parentPdfGrid.Rows.Add();
PdfGridRow row2 = parentPdfGrid.Rows.Add();
row2.Height = 58;

//Add the columns.
parentPdfGrid.Columns.Add(3);

//Set the value to the specific cell.
parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value = "Nested Table";
parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].RowSpan = 2;
parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].ColumnSpan = 2;

//Create the child table.
PdfGrid childPdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Set the column and rows for the child grid.
childPdfGrid.Columns.Add(5);

for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
{
PdfGridRow row = childPdfGrid.Rows.Add();

for (int j = 0; j < 5; j++)
{
row.Cells[j].Value = String.Format("Cell [{0} {1}]", j, i);
}

}

//Set the value as another PdfGrid in a cell.
parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].Value = childPdfGrid;

//Specify the style for the PdfGridCell.
PdfGridCellStyle pdfGridCellStyle = new PdfGridCellStyle();
pdfGridCellStyle.TextPen = PdfPens.Red;
pdfGridCellStyle.Borders.All = PdfPens.Red;
pdfGridCellStyle.BackgroundImage = new PdfBitmap(imagePath);
PdfGridCell pdfGridCell = parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[0];

//Apply style.
pdfGridCell.Style = pdfGridCellStyle;

//Set image position for the background image in style.
pdfGridCell.ImagePosition = PdfGridImagePosition.Fit;

//Draw the PdfGrid.
parentPdfGrid.Draw(pdfPage, PointF.Empty);

//Save the document.
pdfDocument.Save("Output.pdf");
//Close the document.

Built-in table styles

In-built table styles can be applied to PdfGrid, and the appearance is made similar to Microsoft Word’s built-in table styles. You can also apply in-built table styles with the following additional table style options.

  • Banded columns
  • Banded rows
  • First column
  • Last column
  • Header row
  • Last row

The below code example illustrates how to apply built-in table style using ApplyBuiltinStyle method of the PdfGrid with styles from PdfGridBuiltinStyle Enum.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();

//Add a page.
PdfPage page = doc.Pages.Add();

//Create a PdfGrid.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E01", "Clay" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E02", "Thomas" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E03", "George" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E04", "Stefan" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E05", "Mathew" });

Adding multiple tables

The Essential PDF supports maintaining the position of a PDF grid drawn on a PDF page using PdfGridLayoutResult. It provides the rendered bounds of the previously added grid, which can be used to place successive elements without overlapping. Add multiple PDF grids using the bottom position of the previously rendered PDF grid. The following code sample illustrates this.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();

//Add a page.
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add();

//Create a new PdfGrid instance.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Salary");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E01", "Clay", "$10,000" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E02", "Thomas", "$10,500" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E03", "Simon", "$12,000" });

//Assign data source.
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Draw the grid on the PDF document pagement and store the grid position in PdfGridLayoutResult.
PdfGridLayoutResult pdfGridLayoutResult = pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10));

//Initialize PdfGrid and DataTable.
pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();
dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Age");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Sex");

//Add rows to the DataTable.

dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "Steven", "22", "Female" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "Michael", "24", "Male" });

//Assign data source.

Table cell Styles

The Syncfusion .NET PDF library allows you to add different styles like change the background color using BackgroundBrush, add the background image using BackgroundImage, add borders using Borders in PdfGridCellStyle. Also we can add cell dimension by setting row Height, and column Width in PDF table along with spanning through the RowSpan and ColumnSpan.

The following code sample explains how to add different cell styles to a cell in the PdfGrid.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();

/Add a page. 
PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();

//Create a new PdfGrid instance.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Salary");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E01", "Clay", "$10,000" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E02", "Thomas", "$10,500" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E03", "Simon", "$12,000" });

//Assign data source to the PdfGrid.
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Assign the row height and column width.
pdfGrid.Rows[1].Height = 50;
pdfGrid.Columns[1].Width = 100;

//Initialize the PdfGridCellStyle and set the background color.

//Assign the background image to a PdfGridCell.
gridCell = pdfGrid.Rows[1].Cells[1];
gridCell.Style = gridCellStyle;
gridCell.ImagePosition = PdfGridImagePosition.Fit;

Word wrap

The Syncfusion .NET PDF library supports word wrapping in the table cell by setting the WordWrap property to Word of the PdfWordWrapType Enum. It also supports the Character and WordOnly text wrapping.

The following code sample explains how to apply word wrap in the PDF table cell.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();

//Add a page.
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add();

//Create a PdfGrid.
PdfGrid grid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("CustomerID");
dataTable.Columns.Add("CompanyName");
dataTable.Columns.Add("ContactName");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Address");
dataTable.Columns.Add("City");
dataTable.Columns.Add("PostalCode");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Country");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "ALFKI", "Alfreds Futterkiste", "Maria Anders", "Obere Str. 57", "Berlin", "12209", "Germany" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "ANATR", "Ana Trujillo Emparedados yhelados", "Ana Trujillo", "Avda. de la Constitucion 2222", "Mexico D.F.", "05021", "Mexico" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "ANTON", "Antonio Moreno Taqueria", "Antonio Moreno", "Mataderos 2312", "Mexico D.F.", "05023", "Mexico" });

//Assign data source.
grid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Create a new instance for string format.
PdfStringFormat format = new PdfStringFormat();

//Set a word wrap to string format.

Draw HTML styled text

The Syncfusion .NET PDF library provides support to render HTML string in the PDF table cell using the PdfHTMLTextElement class.

  • The PdfHTMLTextElement class provides support for a basic set of HTML tags, to render the HTML format text in the PDF document.

    Supported tags (Should be XHTML-compliant)

    • Font
    • B
    • I
    • U
    • Sub
    • Sup
    • BR

The following code example illustrates how to render the HTML string in a PdfGridCell.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();

//Create the page.
PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();

//Create a new PdfGrid.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Add columns.
pdfGrid.Columns.Add(2);

//Add row and cell values. 
PdfGridRow row1 = pdfGrid.Rows.Add();
row1.Cells[0].Value = "Product Name";
row1.Cells[1].Value = "Description";

//Add row and cell values.
PdfGridRow row2 = pdfGrid.Rows.Add();
row2.Cells[0].Value = "Essential PDF";

//Render the HTML text.
string htmlText = "<font color='#0000F8'><b>Essential PDF</b></font> is a <u><i>.NET library</i></u> " + "with the capability to produce <i>Adobe PDF files </i>.";
PdfHTMLTextElement richTextElement = new PdfHTMLTextElement(htmlText, new PdfStandardFont(PdfFontFamily.TimesRoman, 12), PdfBrushes.Black);

//Set the HTML styled text value to the table cell.
row2.Cells[1].Value = richTextElement;

//Draw the PdfGrid.
pdfGrid.Draw(pdfPage, PointF.Empty);

//Save the document.
pdfDocument.Save("Table.pdf");

Draw border less table

The Syncfusion .NET PDF library allows you to draw border less tables by setting the Transparent color to all Borders property of the PdfGridCellStyle. Also change or remove the border of either side of the table cell.

The following code sample illustrates how to draw a border less table in a PDF document using the PdfGrid.

//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();

//Create the page.
PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();

//Create a new PdfGrid.
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Create a DataTable.
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();

//Add columns to the DataTable.
dataTable.Columns.Add("Roll Number");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name");
dataTable.Columns.Add("Class");

//Add rows to the DataTable.
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E01", "Maxim", "IV" });
dataTable.Rows.Add(new object[] { "E02", "Clay", "IV" });

//Assign data source.
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;

//Declare and define the table cell style. 
PdfGridCellStyle headerStyle = new PdfGridCellStyle();

//Set the border color for the table.
headerStyle.Borders.All = new PdfPen(Color.Transparent);

//Set the text color for the header. 
headerStyle.TextBrush = PdfBrushes.Red;

//Apply the cell style for the header cells. 
for (int i = 0; i < pdfGrid.Headers[0].Cells.Count; i++)
{
    //Get the header cell.
    PdfGridCell headerCell = pdfGrid.Headers[0].Cells[i];

    //Apply the header style. 
    headerCell.Style = headerStyle;
}

//Declare and define the table cell style. 
PdfGridCellStyle cellStyle = new PdfGridCellStyle();

//Set the border color for the table.
