I'm using ItextSharp to create pdf documents. At the end of the document it adds this text.

{"appName":"Unknown","requestId":"38675e673dc54c2682dec4f3e6c0bfb4"}

What is this and how can I get ride of it??

It looks like JSON, most likely your own application is writing it to the PDF file.  Can you share part of your code?

Here is my code for generating the pdf.

using (MemoryStream myMemoryStream = new MemoryStream())
                {

                    Document myDocument = new Document(PageSize.A1, 10f, 10f, 10f, 0f);
                    PdfWriter myPDFWriter = PdfWriter.GetInstance(myDocument, myMemoryStream);
                    myDocument.Open();
                    WebClient wc = new WebClient();
                    string htmlText = wc.DownloadString("http://localhost:59392/GeneratePDF/CreatePDF.aspx?pid=" + bb);
                    Response.Write(htmlText.Replace("\r", "").Replace("\n", "").Replace("  ", ""));
                    List<IElement> htmlarraylist = HTMLWorker.ParseToList(new StringReader(htmlText), null);
                    for (int k = 0; k < htmlarraylist.Count; k++)
                    {
                        myDocument.Add((IElement)htmlarraylist[k]);
                    }
                    myDocument.Close();
                    byte[] content = myMemoryStream.ToArray();
                    using (FileStream fs = File.Create("PayEval" + bb + ".pdf"))
                    {

                        fs.Write(content, 0, (int)content.Length);
                        var p5 = new tblAttachment();
                        p5.ApplicationID = RecID;
                        p5.DocName = "Eval" + bb + ".pdf";
                        p5.DocType = "pdf";
                        p5.DocByteSize = Convert.ToInt32(fs.Length);
                        p5.DocBinary = content;
                        ctx1.tblAttachments.Add(p5);
                        ctx1.SaveChanges();
                        Int32 Attach = p5.AttachmentID;

                    }
					
					}

Open in new window

What's the content of htmlText?  Does it happen to include the string "{"appName":"Unknown","requestId":"38675e673dc54c2682dec4f3e6c0bfb4"}"?

<!</div>\r\n\r\n-- Visual Studio Browser Link -->\r\n<script type=\"application/json\" id=\"__browserLink_initializationData\">\r\n    {\"appName\":\"Unknown\",\"requestId\":\"84aee9b329d54004969ddcdae2b993c9\"}\r\n</script>\r\n<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"http://localhost:54202/6e500d6e2c2e40b19d14bdc8bb202bb4/browserLink\" async=\"async\"></script>\r\n<!-- End Browser Link -->\r\n\r\n</body>\r\n</html>"

That code is injected on the page by the VS2013 debugger to support the Browser Link feature.  Please follow the instructions on the link below to disable it.

I hope this helps.
