Remarks

This class is capable of converting table-based HTML/XHTML documents (like invoices and reports) or plain-text into PDF format. For HTML, only the most common CSS styles are supported. The component, however, provides OnConvertXmlNodeToPdf delegate which allows you to fine-tune the conversion process by adjusting colors, alignment, fonts, or with direct emitting PDF content.

Prior to creating instances of this class, the correct license key must be set. See MailBee.Global.LicenseKey property for details.

Note Note
This class uses iTextSharp and HtmlAgilityPack open source libraries to make HTML be XHTML compliant and build actual PDF content. If you're using HtmlToPdf class, you'll also need to copy the corresponding .DLLs with your application. By default, iTextSharp and HtmlAgilityPack .DLLs reside at the same location where MailBee.NET.dll itself.
Note Note
This class is not supported in .NET Core and UWP apps.
