Convert HTML to SVG

EVO PDF Client for .NET Core

EVO HTML to PDF Converter also allows you to easily convert in just a few lines of code HTML pages and HTML strings to vector images in SVG format. In this section you can learn about the basic settings of the converter.

You can choose the HTML document to convert which can be:

The basic options you can set are grouped in a few categories.

HTML Viewer Options

  • HTML Viewer Width. This option is the equivalent in converter of the browser window width. The property you can set in your code to control the browser window width is HtmlToSvgConverterHtmlViewerWidth. When the browser window width is changed the HTML content displayed inside the window can have a different layout and something similar happens when you change the HTML Viewer width of the converter. At a given viewer width, the converter will capture by default the whole height of the HTML content, but you can set the HTML Viewer height to capture only the top part of the HTML page

  • HTML Viewer Height. This option is the equivalent in converter of the browser window height and can be used to limit the conversion to the top part of the HTML page. If this property is not set the entire page will be converted. The property you can set in your code to control the browser window height is HtmlToSvgConverterHtmlViewerHeight
