As you might have guessed from the title, this post is of the “get it done” variety. So, the code may be a little rough. Its the sort of code that works, but isn’t fully understood (by me at least). I wasn’t able to find a clear example on the net, so I pieced together examples and guesses based on reading the code and interpreting method and class names.
Why guess? Well, iTextSharp is a pretty robust open source project which is useful for creating and manipulating PDF documents. The problem is, it doesn’t seem to have any useful documentation online. It _is_ open source, so you can read the code all day. Also, there are some tutorials that you can download from the files page (in the examples folder).
