How to render the complex scripts (Hindi) text in PDF properly?


To preserve the Hindi complex scripts in PDF document, we can use the GraphicsPath class to convert the string to path and can draw this path in PDF using PdfPath at specified points.

Please refer to the following code example how to draw the Hindi text in PDF document:



//Create a new document

PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();

doc.PageSettings.Margins.All = 0;

//Add a new page

PdfPage page = doc.Pages.Add();

PdfPen pen = PdfPens.Black;

PdfBrush brush = PdfBrushes.Black;

//Initialize the font

FontFamily font = new FontFamily("Arial Unicode MS");


//Create an instance for graphics path

GraphicsPath path1 = new GraphicsPath();

path1.AddString("मेरा नाम है दिनेश", font, 1, 12, new Point(10, 10), new StringFormat());

PointF[] points = path1.PathPoints;

byte[] pathTypes = path1.PathTypes;


//Draw the path in PDF document

PdfPath drawPath = new PdfPath(pen, points, pathTypes);

page.Graphics.DrawPath(brush, drawPath);



//Save and close the document
