Q:

Can I add a table to a PDF with PDFNet?

----------
A:

There are multiple ways to add a table to a PDF document using PDFNet.

We provide a low-level interface called ElementBuilder which can insert text and paths directly into the PDF content stream.  Here are some code samples which could get you started:

An easier option is to create the table in another format, such as XAML, and then convert the XAML document to PDF:

Note that you could do the same with HTML:

On Windows platforms, you can even convert Office documents, as well as any printable document format:
