Missing DLL file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    Where to get relevant DLL file, due to error below?

    The type or namespace name 'iTextSharp' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)



    Many Thanks & Best Regards, Jackson Chen

  • iTextSharp is a third-party product, you can get a free community edition from https://itextpdf.com/en/products/itext-7/itext-7-community

  • Hi,

    Yes, I did enable iText 7 on my project. But now, I am not sure which DLL file is missing.

  • Perhaps you need an older version before iText 7 - https://www.nuget.org/packages/iTextSharp/

    RTFM.  It will tell you what DLL the required namespace can be found in. 

    It's impossible for any thinking person to believe that you knew you needed this library, you downloaded this library, and then you didn't read any documentation or else you quit reading a tutorial that instructed you how to download and set this library up in the first place.

    I believe that this thread exists only to spam MSDN with ads for iTextSharp.


    Before you can learn anything new you have to learn that there's stuff you don't know.

  • Try to download it from NuGet package, and it should resolve the error.

  • Hi,
    Currently iText 7 was installed already on the project, due to issue like

    Error	CS0246	The type or namespace name 'iTextSharp' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
    


    how to correct such lines?

    using iTextSharp.text;
    using iTextSharp.text.pdf;
