We are trying to generate pdf in UWP application using PDF API.
And the need is that the Unicode characters should be able to be written to the PDF from the application. Can you please let us know whether multilingual Unicode characters are supported with PDF API from UWP.
Thanks in Advance for any inputs on this.
//Load the true type font.
Stream fontstream = typeof(MainPage).GetTypeInfo().Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("App1.Assets.arial.ttf");
//Create a new PDF document.
PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();
//Add a new page.
PdfPage page = doc.Pages.Add();
//Initialize the PDF true type font.
PdfFont font = new PdfTrueTypeFont(fontstream, 12, PdfFontStyle.Regular);
page.Graphics.DrawString("hello world! @ # €", font, PdfBrushes.Black, new System.Drawing.PointF(0, 0));
