3 mins read

Syncfusion Essential PDF is a .NET PDF library used to create, read, and edit PDF documents. Using this library, you can paginate a table in the PDF page using C# and VB.NET.

Steps to paginate a table in PDF page programmatically:

  1. Create a new C# console application project. Create a console application project in WinForms PDF
  2. Install the Syncfusion.Pdf.WinForms NuGet package as reference to your .NET Framework application from NuGet package reference screenshot in WinForms PDF
  3. Include the following namespaces in the Program.cs file.


using Syncfusion.Pdf;
using Syncfusion.Pdf.Graphics;
using Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid;
using System.Drawing;



Imports Syncfusion.Pdf
Imports Syncfusion.Pdf.Graphics
Imports Syncfusion.Pdf.Grid
Imports System.Drawing


  1. Use the following code snippet to paginate a table in PDF page.


//Create a new PDF document
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();
//Add a page
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add();
//Create a PdfGrid
PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();
//Create a data table
DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();
//Add columns to the DataTable
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
dataTable.Columns.Add("Type", typeof(string));
dataTable.Columns.Add("Date", typeof(DateTime));
//Add rows to the DataTable
for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
    dataTable.Rows.Add(57, "AAA", "ABC", DateTime.Now);
    dataTable.Rows.Add(130, "BBB", "BCD", DateTime.Now);
    dataTable.Rows.Add(92, "CCC", "CDE", DateTime.Now);
//Assign data source
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable;
//Set properties to paginate the grid
PdfGridLayoutFormat layoutFormat = new PdfGridLayoutFormat();
layoutFormat.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;
layoutFormat.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;
//Draw grid to the page of PDF document
pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10), layoutFormat);
// Save the document
//Close the document
//This will open the PDF file so, the result will be seen in default PDF Viewer 



'Create a new PDF document
Dim document As New PdfDocument()
'Add a page
Dim page As PdfPage = document.Pages.Add()
'Create a PdfGrid
Dim pdfGrid As New PdfGrid()
'Create a data table
Dim dataTable As New DataTable()
'Add columns to the DataTable
dataTable.Columns.Add("ID", GetType(Integer))
dataTable.Columns.Add("Name", GetType(String))
dataTable.Columns.Add("Type", GetType(String))
dataTable.Columns.Add("Date", GetType(DateTime))
'Add rows to the DataTable
For i As Integer = 0 To 19
    dataTable.Rows.Add(57, "AAA", "ABC", DateTime.Now)
    dataTable.Rows.Add(130, "BBB", "BCD", DateTime.Now)
    dataTable.Rows.Add(92, "CCC", "CDE", DateTime.Now)
'Assign data source
pdfGrid.DataSource = dataTable
'Set properties to paginate the grid
Dim layoutFormat As New PdfGridLayoutFormat()
layoutFormat.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage
layoutFormat.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate
'Draw grid to the page of PDF document
pdfGrid.Draw(page, New PointF(10, 10), layoutFormat)
' Save the document
'Close the document
'This will open the PDF file so, the result will be seen in default PDF Viewer
