    Ok, I have a few manuals setup in a similar fashon to the Sitefiniy help (http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/installation-and-administration-guide.aspx) in a SF3.7 installation and I was hoping to write a quick script to go through each page add the page Title as the title, then dump the contents of the generic Content into the PDF.

    Other than controls on the page template, each page itself only has 1 Generic Content control.


    Is there a simple way to do this?  I'm happy to buy a PDF convert API if also needed.

    Thanks in advance.
    Regards
    Byron

    Hi Byzza,

    You can get the page and controls on it as shown here, bug you need to use a third party library to convert the content to PDF

    I finially managed to extract all the information I needed and can display it on a page, but I'm having trouble finding a decent HTML to PDF convert for asp.net
    Can you recommend any please?

    Thank you

    Hi Byzza,

    There should be some free libraries on codeplex or codeproject like this one.
