C# PDF Control & Library
I'm looking for a way to display a PDF (similar to a picture box), in a Windows Form. After that I need to be able to create a PDF. What's the best library for the job for creating the PDF (from simple text)? I've taken a look at several and I'm not sure which one is the best. Preferably open source. As for the control, I tried the COM object Adobe provides... I can't seem to get it working. At all. I've tried loading several files, there are no errors. It simply fails to load.
I worked with SharpPDF and it did great job. And it's open source.
To answer your question about getting the PDF to render, you could use a WebBrowser Control on your form as long as the client workstation has Adobe Reader installed. The browser will automatically pick up the MIME type and load the in-browser Adobe Reader.
For creating pdf's iTextSharp is very good, and it's free too.
