Asked On November 14, 2008 01:14 PM UTC

I am using syncfusion for one of my client.

While converting word documents into pdf, that it aligns the documents left in the pdf file while in the original document, alignment was centered.

And also images on a word docs does not get transferred over when its converted to pdf.

Below are the codes i am using to convert .doc into pdf in c#.

MemoryStream ms = ConvertToPdf(hifUploadFile.PostedFile.InputStream);

protected MemoryStream ConvertToPdf(Stream st)
{


HtmlConverter html = new HtmlConverter();
WordDocument wd = new WordDocument(st, FormatType.Doc); // Save stream to word document

HTMLExport htmlExport = new HTMLExport();
MemoryStream PDF_STREAM = new MemoryStream();
MemoryStream HTML_STREAM = new MemoryStream();


htmlExport.SaveAsXhtml(wd, HTML_STREAM); // Convert Doc to html


Byte[] bt = HTML_STREAM.GetBuffer();




PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();
doc.PageSettings.Margins.All = 10;
doc.PageSettings.Width =750f;

PdfPage page = doc.Pages.Add();
PdfGraphics g = page.Graphics;
SizeF pageSize = page.GetClientSize();

PdfUnitConvertor convertor = new PdfUnitConvertor();


using (MemoryStream PDF_STREAM1 = new MemoryStream(bt))
{
using (System.Drawing.Image img = html.ConvertToImage(PDF_STREAM1, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8 , ImageType.Metafile,1024,-1,AspectRatio.KeepWidth))
{
PdfMetafile metafile = (PdfMetafile)PdfImage.FromImage(img);
if (img.Size.Width > pageSize.Width)
{
PdfMetafileLayoutFormat format = new PdfMetafileLayoutFormat();
format.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;
format.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;
format.SplitTextLines = false;
metafile.Draw(page, new RectangleF(0, 0, pageSize.Width, pageSize.Height), format);
}
else
{
PdfMetafileLayoutFormat format = new PdfMetafileLayoutFormat();
format.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;
format.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;
format.SplitTextLines = false;
metafile.Draw(page, new RectangleF(0, 0, img.Width, img.Height), format);

}
}
}

doc.Save(PDF_STREAM);
doc.Close();

return PDF_STREAM;

}

Hi Sandeep,

Thanks for the document.

I am able to reproduce the issue in the given docx file, the image is not preserved, so the content is moved to up. But this is working fine for doc format. The image and the alignments are perfect.

We suspect the issue "While converting the docx file to html the image is not preserved “to be a defect and we have forwarded this to our development team for more analysis. We will update you in two business days with more details.

Here is the output PDF document after converting the .doc file to PDF:

If pdf conversion of the sent doc file works perfect, please show me the code you are using to covert doc/docs into pdf(using memory stream).

Hi Sandeep,

After analysis the issue we found the below details.

When you save a Document in HTML DocIO needs to save all images embedded in the document as standalone files. If you save the document into a file and provide a file name, DocIO saves the embedded images in the same folder where the document file is saved.

However, if you save the document into a stream, DocIO does not have a folder where to save the images, but still needs to save the embedded images somewhere as files. In this case, HtmlExportImagesFolder allows you to specify where the images will be save.

Please refer the below code snippet to do so:

wd.SaveOptions.HtmlExportImagesFolder = Server.MapPath(".");
htmlExport.SaveAsXhtml(wd, HTML_STREAM);


So please export the images into the folder before streaming the HTML page. Let me know if you need any further details.

Best Regards,
Bhuvana

Hello Bhuvana,

Thanks for reply,

I am implementing your solution but problem still occurs. Images are not shown in pdf file even though images are saved in the specified location using
wd.SaveOptions.HtmlExportImagesFolder = Server.MapPath("~/Files/Images");

Sometime i receives following error : --

"An exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.ExternalException' occurred in Syncfusion.DocIO.Base.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Couldnt create storage."



"An exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException' occurred in AxSHDocVw.DLL but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component."

The code i using is in the attached file.

Please test it in your side and give me solution.

Thanks and Regards

Sandeep Verma

My friend often works with doc files. He opened and started working with his document but something happened. He lost whole data. Luckily he told me this incident some days ago.
