I'm looking for a library to convert HTML to PDF.   I'll be doing this in VB/C# .NET code. Currently, I am using Aspose to do this, but it's too slow for my application.  Looking for something fast, as my HTML is fairly simple.

Hi,

You can use iTextSharp for C#.

I have used PDFSharp and MigraDoc in several VB.NET projects:

It's free to use even in commercial applications. I've only used it to create and merge PDF files, and not to convert (which is what MigraDoc does, I believe).

To clarify - I don't want to point to the HTML via a browser.   This is a desktop app, and I want to be able to convert an HTML file.

Also, I need to be able to add pages, one at a time, to the PDF.  I'm adding the same basic HTML file (with minor data changes) multiple times to the PDF.  The HTML uses position:absolute for most of the elements.

I've installed PDFSharp and TheArtOfDev HTMLRenderer.    I can create a PDF document.   However, I can find sample code (VB.NET or C#.NET) that shows how to use HTMLRenderer and/or with PDFSharp.

I have used Syncfusion Essential Studio on a limited basis.  They have a community license, as well, which allows a free license under certain circumstances.  See the following page for more information: Syncfusion Community License
