My html file is containing a image and I placed both my html file and the image in the same folder App_Data.
Sample HTML file:
<div style='font-size: 10pt'><p align='center'><font size='5' style='font-weight: bold;'>Hello world</font><br><font style='color: rgb(128, 128, 128);' size='2'>5/16/2013</font><br><img src='Chart.png' alt='Image' style='width: 150px; height: 113px; '></p><p>Hello world</p><div>
I tried my HTML file using your sample application 'Html to pdf(Html String)14949383871505149555.zip' (HtmlToPDF.aspx).
No issues with the Html string. Only the image in the html file is not properly rendering. The alternate text for the image only displaying in the converted pdf.
steps to replicate:
1. place a html file and an image in App_Data folder
2. refer the image in the html file like the html which I placed above.
3. try the html file using 'Html to pdf(Html String)14949383871505149555.zip' (HtmlToPDF.aspx).
If the issue is with the path of the image, plz tell me, how to give the image path.
Thank you for your patience, please find the response below.
When converting HTML to PDF from string, the HTMLConverter saves it as an html file and then navigate to the page using WebBrowser control to convert into image. Hence it is recommended to have the absolute path of the image from disk or the link of the uploaded image.
Regarding the searchable text, if you running the conversion in IE 9 or IE 10 installed machines, there is a known issue with MSHTML rendering engine that it generates only bitmap image. This can be solved by updating the registry as specified in the following MSDN link:
The utility to update this change in registry is shipped with Essential Studio install. You can access it as below.
