  2. Install the Syncfusion.Pdf.WinForms NuGet package as reference to your .NET Framework application from NuGet.org. NuGet package reference screenshot
  3. Include the following namespaces in the Form1.Designer.cs file.


using Syncfusion.Pdf;
using Syncfusion.Pdf.Graphics;
using Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid;
using System.Drawing;



Imports Syncfusion.Pdf
Imports Syncfusion.Pdf.Graphics
Imports Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid
Imports System.Drawing


  1. Use the following code snippet in the click event of the button to add two images in one PDF cell.


//Create a new PDF document
PdfDocument pdfDocument = new PdfDocument();
//Create the page
PdfPage pdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add();
//Create new PdfGrid
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();
//Add row
PdfGridRow row1 = pdfGrid.Rows.Add();
//Add columns
//Set the value to the specific cell
row1.Cells[0].Value = "Two images in one PDF table cell";
//Add row
PdfGridRow row2 = pdfGrid.Rows.Add();
row2.Height = 400;
pdfGrid.BeginCellLayout += PdfGrid_BeginCellLayout;
//Create and customize the string formats
PdfStringFormat format = new PdfStringFormat();
format.Alignment = PdfTextAlignment.Center;
pdfGrid.Rows[0].Cells[0].StringFormat = format;
//Draw the PdfGrid
pdfGrid.Draw(pdfPage, PointF.Empty);
//Save the document
//Close the document
//This will open the PDF file so, the result will be seen in default PDF viewer 


'Create a new PDF document
Dim pdfDocument As New PdfDocument()
'Create the page
Dim pdfPage As PdfPage = pdfDocument.Pages.Add()
'Create new PdfGrid
Dim pdfGrid As New PdfGrid()
'Add row
Dim row1 As PdfGridRow = pdfGrid.Rows.Add()
'Add columns
'Set the value to the specific cell
row1.Cells(0).Value = "Two images in one PDF table cell"
'Add row
Dim row2 As PdfGridRow = pdfGrid.Rows.Add()
row2.Height = 400
AddHandler pdfGrid.BeginCellLayout, AddressOf PdfGrid_BeginCellLayout
'Create and customize the string formats
Dim format As New PdfStringFormat()
format.Alignment = PdfTextAlignment.Center
pdfGrid.Rows(0).Cells(0).StringFormat = format
'Draw the PdfGrid
pdfGrid.Draw(pdfPage, PointF.Empty)
'Save the document
'Close the document
'This will open the PDF file so, the result will be seen in default PDF viewer 


  1. Use the following code in event handler.


private static void PdfGrid_BeginCellLayout(object sender, PdfGridBeginCellLayoutEventArgs args)
    //Draw images one after another in single PDF cell
    if(args.RowIndex==1 && args.CellIndex ==0)
        //Load the first image from the disk
        PdfBitmap image1 = new PdfBitmap("Image1.jpg");
        //Draw first image
        args.Graphics.DrawImage(image1, new RectangleF(args.Bounds.X,args.Bounds.Y,args.Bounds.Width,200));
        //Load the second image from the disk
        PdfBitmap image2 = new PdfBitmap("Image2.jpg");
        //Draw second image
        args.Graphics.DrawImage(image2, new RectangleF(args.Bounds.X,args.Bounds.Y+200,args.Bounds.Width,200));



Private Shared Sub PdfGrid_BeginCellLayout(sender As Object, args As PdfGridBeginCellLayoutEventArgs)
     'Draw images one after another in single PDF cell
     If args.RowIndex = 1 AndAlso args.CellIndex = 0 Then
         'Load the first image from the disk
         Dim image1 As New PdfBitmap("Image1.jpg")
         'Draw first image
         args.Graphics.DrawImage(image1, New RectangleF(args.Bounds.X, args.Bounds.Y, args.Bounds.Width, 200))
         'Load the second image from the disk
         Dim image2 As New PdfBitmap("Image2.jpg")
         'Draw second image
         args.Graphics.DrawImage(image2, New RectangleF(args.Bounds.X, args.Bounds.Y + 200, args.Bounds.Width, 200))
     End If
 End Sub
