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.

From 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
};

From 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.

From 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
};
