Mix MigraDoc and PDFsharp screen shot

Source Code

Creating the Document

We create a PdfDocument, not a (MigraDoc) Document:
static void Main()
{
  DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
  string filename = "MixMigraDocAndPdfSharp.pdf";
  filename = Guid.NewGuid().ToString("D").ToUpper() + ".pdf";
  PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();
  document.Info.Title = "PDFsharp XGraphic Sample";
  document.Info.Author = "Stefan Lange";
  document.Info.Subject = "Created with code snippets that show the use of graphical functions";
  document.Info.Keywords = "PDFsharp, XGraphics";
 
  SamplePage1(document);
 
  SamplePage2(document);
 
  Debug.WriteLine("seconds=" + (DateTime.Now - now).TotalSeconds.ToString());
 
  // Save the document...
  document.Save(filename);
  // ...and start a viewer
  Process.Start(filename);
}

The First Page

Here we create a MigraDoc Document object to draw the content of this page:
static void SamplePage1(PdfDocument document)
{
  PdfPage page = document.AddPage();
  XGraphics gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(page);
  // HACK²
  gfx.MUH = PdfFontEncoding.Unicode;
  gfx.MFEH = PdfFontEmbedding.Default;
 
  XFont font = new XFont("Verdana", 13, XFontStyle.Bold);
 
  gfx.DrawString("The following paragraph was rendered using MigraDoc:", font, XBrushes.Black,
    new XRect(100, 100, page.Width - 200, 300), XStringFormats.Center);
 
  // You always need a MigraDoc document for rendering.
  Document doc = new Document();
  Section sec = doc.AddSection();
  // Add a single paragraph with some text and format information.
  Paragraph para = sec.AddParagraph();
  para.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Justify;
  para.Format.Font.Name = "Times New Roman";
  para.Format.Font.Size = 12;
  para.Format.Font.Color = MigraDoc.DocumentObjectModel.Colors.DarkGray;
  para.Format.Font.Color = MigraDoc.DocumentObjectModel.Colors.DarkGray;
  para.AddText("Duisism odigna acipsum delesenisl ");
  para.AddFormattedText("ullum in velenit", TextFormat.Bold);
  para.AddText(" ipit iurero dolum zzriliquisis nit wis dolore vel et nonsequipit, velendigna "+
    "auguercilit lor se dipisl duismod tatem zzrit at laore magna feummod oloborting ea con vel "+
    "essit augiati onsequat luptat nos diatum vel ullum illummy nonsent nit ipis et nonsequis "+
    "niation utpat. Odolobor augait et non etueril landre min ut ulla feugiam commodo lortie ex "+
    "essent augait el ing eumsan hendre feugait prat augiatem amconul laoreet. ≤≥≈≠");
  para.Format.Borders.Distance = "5pt";
  para.Format.Borders.Color = Colors.Gold;
 
  // Create a renderer and prepare (=layout) the document
  MigraDoc.Rendering.DocumentRenderer docRenderer = new DocumentRenderer(doc);
  docRenderer.PrepareDocument();
 
  // Render the paragraph. You can render tables or shapes the same way.
  docRenderer.RenderObject(gfx, XUnit.FromCentimeter(5), XUnit.FromCentimeter(10), "12cm", para);
}

Creating Page Two

This page contains six pages, created with MigraDoc and scaled down to fit on one page:
static void SamplePage2(PdfDocument document)
{
  PdfPage page = document.AddPage();
  XGraphics gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(page);
  // HACK²
  gfx.MUH = PdfFontEncoding.Unicode;
  gfx.MFEH = PdfFontEmbedding.Default;
 
  // Create document from HalloMigraDoc sample
  Document doc = HelloMigraDoc.Documents.CreateDocument();
 
  // Create a renderer and prepare (=layout) the document
  MigraDoc.Rendering.DocumentRenderer docRenderer = new DocumentRenderer(doc);
  docRenderer.PrepareDocument();
 
  // For clarity we use point as unit of measure in this sample.
  // A4 is the standard letter size in Germany (21cm x 29.7cm).
  XRect A4Rect = new XRect(0, 0, A4Width, A4Height);
 
  int pageCount = docRenderer.FormattedDocument.PageCount;
  for (int idx = 0; idx < pageCount; idx++)
  {
    XRect rect = GetRect(idx);
 
    // Use BeginContainer / EndContainer for simplicity only. You can naturaly use you own transformations.
    XGraphicsContainer container = gfx.BeginContainer(rect, A4Rect, XGraphicsUnit.Point);
 
    // Draw page border for better visual representation
    gfx.DrawRectangle(XPens.LightGray, A4Rect);
 
    // Render the page. Note that page numbers start with 1.
    docRenderer.RenderPage(gfx, idx + 1);
 
    // Note: The outline and the hyperlinks (table of content) does not work in the produced PDF document.
 
    // Pop the previous graphical state
    gfx.EndContainer(container);
  }
}

Helper Routine GetRect

Calculates the area of a scaled down page:
static XRect GetRect(int index)
{
  XRect rect = new XRect(0, 0, A4Width / 3 * 0.9, A4Height / 3 * 0.9);
  rect.X = (index % 3) * A4Width / 3 + A4Width * 0.05 / 3;
  rect.Y = (index / 3) * A4Height / 3 + A4Height * 0.05 / 3;
  return rect;
}
static double A4Width = XUnit.FromCentimeter(21).Point;
static double A4Height = XUnit.FromCentimeter(29.7).Point;
