Adding image & text to PDF using iTextSharp

Hello,

I want to do something like what' shown in code section using iTextSharp. I've got the GIF image and two texts that are to be aligned to the left of it, with some spacing between the image and between the lines as well ( a simple newline is OK). Then I want to flush the whole thing and start writing below the image, from the left border. The top of the image is to be aligned with the top of Text1. Can you provide me with a working code, please? I've been trying to achieve this for a while, but I generally fail with the top-alignment (IMage.ALIGN_TOP does not seem to work) and don't know how to skip below the image after Text2. Please do not provide links to general iTextSharp guides, just working code. Thanks.

=========  Text 1

|       |

| IMAGE |  Text 2

|       |

Ty this
//Try this

//Add reference to the ITextSharp.dll

using iTextSharp.text;  

using iTextSharp.text.pdf; 

//Add Namespace

//Lets see this code which will be place image into PDF document



//view sourceprint?01 // Now image in the pdf file  



       string imageFilePath = Server.MapPath(".") + "/image/Sunset.jpg";  



       iTextSharp.text.Image jpg = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imageFilePath);  



       //Resize image depend upon your need  



       jpg.ScaleToFit(280f, 260f);  



       //Give space before image  



       jpg.SpacingBefore = 30f;  



       //Give some space after the image  



       jpg.SpacingAfter = 1f;  



       jpg.Alignment = Element.ALIGN_LEFT;  



       doc.Add(paragraph); // add paragraph to the document  



          



       doc.Add(jpg); //add an image to the created pdf document 



Now to see full code you can place the below code in any event like on button click



In C# sample code function



view sourceprint?01 private void CreatePDFFile()  



 {  



         Document doc = new Document(iTextSharp.text.PageSize.LETTER, 10, 10, 42, 35);  



         try 



         {  



            string pdfFilePath = Server.MapPath(".") + "/pdf/myPdf.pdf";  



    



             //Create Document class object and set its size to letter and give space left, right, Top, Bottom Margin  



             PdfWriter wri = PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, new FileStream(pdfFilePath, FileMode.Create));  



             doc.Open();//Open Document to write  



    



             //Write some content into pdf file  



             Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph("This is my first line using Paragraph.");  



               



             // Now image in the pdf file  



            string imageFilePath = Server.MapPath(".") + "/image/Sunset.jpg";  



             iTextSharp.text.Image jpg = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imageFilePath);  



    



             //Resize image depend upon your need  



             jpg.ScaleToFit(280f, 260f);  



    



             //Give space before image  



             jpg.SpacingBefore = 30f;  



    



             //Give some space after the image  



            jpg.SpacingAfter = 1f;  



             jpg.Alignment = Element.ALIGN_CENTER;  



    



             doc.Add(paragraph); // add paragraph to the document  



                



             doc.Add(jpg); //add an image to the created pdf document  



         }  



         catch (DocumentException docEx)  



         {  



             //handle pdf document exception if any  



         }  



         catch (IOException ioEx)  



         {  



             // handle IO exception  



         }  



         catch (Exception ex)  



         {  



             // ahndle other exception if occurs  



         }  



         finally 



         {  



             //Close document and writer  



             doc.Close();  



               



         }  



    }
