asp.net, itextsharp, print pdf

I have a link like <a href="printreport.pdf">Print</a> it calls simple pdf file. (the pdf has no company logo)
Now I want to the pdf printing with logo at the left top corner. I can change the url to
<a href="printreportwithlogo.aspx">Print</a>
and call itextsharp to add the logo there. First of all, is it possible? if yes, can you show me how to do that?

Thanks

one more question. there may be a pdf file with more than one page - meaning that
each pdf page has to print the company logo. so i believe it must use itextsharp to read
how many page in the pdf and then loop in and put the printing companylogo inside of the loop.

I just know how to describe but don't know how to code ...:-(

Thanks

You could do something along these lines:

printreportwithlogo.aspx
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="printreportwithlogo.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApplication1.printreportwithlogo" %>

Open in new window

printreportwithlogo.aspx.cs
using iTextSharp.text.pdf;
using System;

namespace WebApplication1
{
    public partial class printreportwithlogo : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

            string pdfPath = Server.MapPath("~/Content/files/book.pdf");
            string imgPath = Server.MapPath("~/Content/images/experts-exchange-logo.png");
            PdfReader reader = new PdfReader(pdfPath);
            PdfStamper stamper = new PdfStamper(reader, Response.OutputStream);
            iTextSharp.text.Image img = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imgPath);
            PdfContentByte content;

            img.SetAbsolutePosition(10, 700);

            for (int i = 1; i < reader.NumberOfPages; i++)
            {
                content = stamper.GetOverContent(i);
                content.AddImage(img);
            }

            stamper.Close();
        }
    }
}

Open in new window


Keep in mind that the coordinate system starts from the bottom left, so you may need to fiddle with the "10, 700" to get your positioning just right. The for loop handles adding the image to each page. If you later need to only add it to one page, you can swap out the for loop for just its body.
