This method is essentially the same as the AddImageUrl method but it allows you to use
raw HTML rather than having to specify a URL.
Using the MSHTML, ABCGecko and ABCWebKit engines, ABCpdf saves
this HTML into a temporary file and renders the file using a
'file://' protocol specifier. So this is a convenience function -
it doesn't offer any performance enhancements. Sometimes the IIS
users do not have full access to the temp directory. This is
determined by the system setup you have on your machine. If this is
the case you will get errors returned. So if you are working from
ASP you may find that you need to enable access to the temp
directory for the ASPNET user, the IUSR_MACHINENAME user or the
Under the ABCChrome engine this method works slightly
differently and without an intermediate file. While in many cases
this is desirable, it may not scale well for very large HTML
strings. If your HTML is larger than perhaps a megabyte you may
wish to consider saving the HTML to file and referencing it via a
'file://' protocol specifier.
Styles and Images. HTML does not exist within a file and
so it does not have a location.
External stylesheets and images are often referenced via
relative URLs. Because the HTML has no location it is impossible to
resolve these relative reference.
This means you need to provide your stylesheet and image links
as absolute references or provide a BaseURI property
to allow them to be resolved. The BaseURI property is only
available when you are using the ABCChrome Chrome86 HTML
As an alternative you can insert an HTML BASE element into your
HTML to specify an appropriate base location, or you can save your
HTML to file in an appropriate location and then use AddImageUrl.
Note that any HTML BASE tag must appear in the HEAD and it must
appear before other references.
Make sure your HTML comes from trusted sources. See the Security
section of the HTML
/ CSS Rendering section of the documentation for details.
