I have a project that requires reading in a number of txt files of various lengths and converting them to pdf. What is the most straight forward way to do that? I have varying page sizes I have to deal so I want to just read in my text and create a PdfDocument. Is there a way to just have the DrawString auto size and add pages automatically or must I do all those calculations to keep adding pages and rectagles? Are there more samples our there somewhere that can show how to handle multiple unknown pages?

Thanks

var fileTxt =
System.IO.File.ReadAllText(@"K:\SOMEFILE.TXT",
Encoding.UTF8);



// Set font encoding to unicode
XPdfFontOptions options = new XPdfFontOptions(PdfFontEncoding.Unicode);
XFont font = new XFont("Courier New", 6, XFontStyle.Regular, options);


// Create new document
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();
PdfPage page = document.AddPage();

XGraphics gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(page);


XTextFormatter tf = new XTextFormatter(gfx);
tf.Alignment = XParagraphAlignment.Left;

tf.DrawString(fileTxt, font, XBrushes.Black,
new XRect(20, 20, page.Width-20, 300), XStringFormats.TopLeft);

I would most likely use MigraDoc's Document class and add each line of the TXT file using AddParagraph.
You get the page breaks for free.

Another option is the XTextFormatter class or the XTextFormatterEx family of classes - but you still have to add the page breaks and take care of page margins.
