How to add nested Grid in PDF

How to add nested Grid in PDF


We can add a nested grid or table in the PDF document. This can be achieved by using the PdfGrid class. Please find the following code sample for achieving this requirement.

            //Create a new PDF document.

            PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();


            //Create the page

            PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();


            //Create the parent grid

            PdfGrid parentPdfGrid = new PdfGrid();


            //Add the rows

            PdfGridRow row1 = parentPdfGrid.Rows.Add();

            PdfGridRow row2 = parentPdfGrid.Rows.Add();

            row1.Height = 20;

            row2.Height = 58;


            //Add the columns



            //Set the value to the specific cell.

            parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[0].Value = "Parent Table";

            parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].RowSpan = 2;

            parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].ColumnSpan = 2;


            //Create the child table

            PdfGrid childPdfGrid = new PdfGrid();


            //Set the column and rows for child grid


            for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)


                PdfGridRow row = childPdfGrid.Rows.Add();

                for (int j = 0; j < 5; j++)


                    row.Cells[j].Value = String.Format("Child Cell [{0} {1}]", j, i);



            //Set the value as another PdfGrid in a cell.

            parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[1].Value = childPdfGrid;


            //Specify the style for the PdfGridCell.

            PdfGridCellStyle pdfGridCellStyle = new PdfGridCellStyle();

            pdfGridCellStyle.Borders.All = PdfPens.Red;

            PdfGridCell pdfGridCell = parentPdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[0];


            //Apply style

            pdfGridCell.Style = pdfGridCellStyle;


            //Draw the PdfGrid.

            parentPdfGrid.Draw(pdfPage, PointF.Empty);


            //Save the document.



            //Close the document
