Creating on-the-fly PDF using C#.NET

Few days back I post about how to create PDF using PHP. But I always wonder How can I do it using .NET Framework, as what I found that PDF library for .NET are more than total project cost. But thanks to Open source developer I found few libraries out their for free.

  One that works for me is iTextSharp hosted on SourceForge.NET. My friend for life SourceForge Always comes good with its code collection.

I try its VB example first, that are for Windows Application. But it hardly matters for me. As they run perfectly when I try to use them for ASP.NET application.

Though my project is in C#, I use the C# library by adding it as new project to my solution and than using its name spaces as in its VB.NET Tutorial example. All works so perfect that I cannot explain.
