Source Code Listing

The Main method:
static void Main(string[] args)
{
  // Create a MigraDoc document
  Document document = CreateDocument();
  document.UseCmykColor = true;
 
  // ===== Unicode encoding and font program embedding in MigraDoc is demonstrated here =====
 
  // A flag indicating whether to create a Unicode PDF or a WinAnsi PDF file.
  // This setting applies to all fonts used in the PDF document.
  // This setting has no effect on the RTF renderer.
  const bool unicode = false;
 
  // An enum indicating whether to embed fonts or not.
  // This setting applies to all font programs used in the document.
  // This setting has no effect on the RTF renderer.
  // (The term 'font program' is used by Adobe for a file containing a font. Technically a 'font file'
  // is a collection of small programs and each program renders the glyph of a character when executed.
  // Using a font in PDFsharp may lead to the embedding of one or more font programms, because each outline
  // (regular, bold, italic, bold+italic, ...) has its own fontprogram)
  const PdfFontEmbedding embedding = PdfFontEmbedding.Always;
 
  // ========================================================================================
 
  // Create a renderer for the MigraDoc document.
  PdfDocumentRenderer pdfRenderer = new PdfDocumentRenderer(unicode, embedding);
 
  // Associate the MigraDoc document with a renderer
  pdfRenderer.Document = document;
 
  // Layout and render document to PDF
  pdfRenderer.RenderDocument();
 
  // Save the document...
  const string filename = "HelloWorld.pdf";
  pdfRenderer.PdfDocument.Save(filename);
  // ...and start a viewer.
  Process.Start(filename);
}

The CreateDocument method:
/// 
/// Creates an absolutely minimalistic document.
/// 
static Document CreateDocument()
{
  // Create a new MigraDoc document
  Document document = new Document();
 
  // Add a section to the document
  Section section = document.AddSection();
 
  // Add a paragraph to the section
  Paragraph paragraph = section.AddParagraph();
 
  paragraph.Format.Font.Color = Color.FromCmyk(100, 30, 20, 50);
 
  // Add some text to the paragraph
  paragraph.AddFormattedText("Hello, World!", TextFormat.Bold);
 
  return document;
}
