Convert URL to PDF Example

Here we have an example of IronPDF renderig into a PDF by using the RenderUrlAsPdf() method. The parameter is an absolute (fully formed) Uri. This pints to the Html document to be rendered as a PDF.

using IronPdf;

// Instantiate Renderer
var renderer = new ChromePdfRenderer();

// Create a PDF from a URL or local file path
var pdf = renderer.RenderUrlAsPdf("");

// Export to a file or Stream
Imports IronPdf

' Instantiate Renderer
Private renderer = New ChromePdfRenderer()

' Create a PDF from a URL or local file path
Private pdf = renderer.RenderUrlAsPdf("")

' Export to a file or Stream
