Convert HTML to PDF in Xamarin

This tutorial only applies to Xamarin.Android. See Xamarin.iOS equivalent here.
HTML to PDF conversion is available for Android API 19 and above.
Internet connection is not required when converting local HTML files. However, it is required for converting HTTP/HTTPS links.

The HTML to PDF conversion API accepts different sources, such as HTTP/HTTPS URLs, HTML strings, and everything that can be loaded in a WebView.

linkFrom link

To convert a link URL to PDF, simply:

HTML2PDF hTML2PDF = new HTML2PDF(this);
hTML2PDF.FromUrl("http://developer.android.com/about/index.html");
hTML2PDF.ConversionFinished += (sender, e) =>
{
    // do something with e.PdfOutput
};
hTML2PDF.ConversionFailed += (sender, e) =>
{
    // error handling
};

linkFrom HTML string

To convert an HTML string to PDF, simply:

HTML2PDF hTML2PDF = new HTML2PDF(this);
hTML2PDF.FromHTMLDocument(myBaseUrl, myHtmlData);
hTML2PDF.ConversionFinished += (sender, e) =>
{
    // do something with e.PdfOutput
};
hTML2PDF.ConversionFailed += (sender, e) =>
{
    // error handling
};

where myBaseUrl is the URL to use as the page's base URL. If null defaults to about:blank and myHtmlData is a String of data in the UTF-8 encoding. Click here for more info.

linkFrom other sources

If none of the above fit your needs, you can also pass in a WebView directly for conversion:

HTML2PDF hTML2PDF = new HTML2PDF(myWebview);
hTML2PDF.DoHtml2Pdf();
hTML2PDF.ConversionFinished += (sender, e) =>
{
    // do something with e.PdfOutput
};
hTML2PDF.ConversionFailed += (sender, e) =>
{
    // error handling
};
