How to include rotated watermarks in center of the page in PDF document:

To achieve including rotated watermarks in the center of the page in PDF document, we need to translate transform the page graphics to center position and calculate the center from size of the watermark text, then render the watermark in X and Y position. The below code illustrates the same.


// Create a new instance of PdfDocument class.
PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();
// Add a page to the document.
PdfPage page = document.Pages.Add();
// Create Pdf graphics for the page.
PdfGraphics graphics = page.Graphics;
//Create a font
PdfFont font = new PdfTrueTypeFont(new System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 20,FontStyle.Bold), true);
//save the grapics state
PdfGraphicsState state = graphics.Save();
//Translate the page graphics to be in center.
graphics.TranslateTransform(page.GetClientSize().Width / 2, page.GetClientSize().Height / 2);
//Set the transparency
//Set the rotation
string watermarkText = "Imported Using Essential PDF";
// Measure the size of the watermark text
SizeF waterMarkSize= font.MeasureString(watermarkText);
//Draw the watermark text.
graphics.DrawString(watermarkText, font, PdfPens.Red, new PointF(-waterMarkSize.Width/2, -waterMarkSize.Height/2));
//Restore the graphics
// Save the document and dispose it.
