iText is a PDF library that allows you to CREATE, ADAPT, INSPECT and MAINTAIN documents in the Portable Document Format (PDF):
- Generate documents and reports based on data from an XML file or a database
- Create maps and books, exploiting numerous interactive features available in PDF
- Add bookmarks, page numbers, watermarks, and other features to existing PDF documents
- Split or concatenate pages from existing PDF files
- Fill out interactive forms
- Serve dynamically generated or manipulated PDF documents to a web browser
iText is used by Java, .NET, Android and GAE developers to enhance their applications with PDF functionality.
iTextSharp is the .NET port.
Several iText engineers are actively supporting the project on on StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/itext

I think it is probably the best PDF library in the market. I have tried many of them and they either aren't as simple or simply don't have the features. On the other hand, it lacks some documentation, which in someway they do mitigate with their engineers in Stackoverflow. Overall, I'm very happy with the library. It's simple to use, the use of most of the features are around Stackoverflow, and it has a lot (and I mean a lot) of features. My favourite was being able to fill in AcroFields in PDFs ;)
Um, can someone write some documentation? Sheesh. I've never seen so little documentation. It's like you didn't even try.
Thanks for quick release of 5.5.5 - 5.5.4 had the "index out of array bounds" issue again. You saved my bacon, as I was just about to look for something else, but didn't want to. Barry
This library is so poorly documented and badly designed it's not even funny.
