PLEASE NOTE: iTextSharp is EOL, and has been replaced by iText7

We HIGHLY recommend customers use iText7 for new projects, and to consider moving existing projects from iTextSharp to iText7 to benefit from the many improvements such as:

  • HTML to PDF (PDF/UA) conversion
  • PDF Redaction
  • SVG support
  • Better language support: Indic, Thai, Khmer, Arabic, Hebrew. (Close-source addon)
  • PDF Debugging for your IDE
  • Data Extraction
  • Better continued support and bugfixes
  • More modular, extensible handling of your document workflow
  • Extra practical add-ons
  • Encryption, hashing & digital signatures

iTextSharp consists of several dlls.

The main iTextSharp release contains:

  • itextsharp.dll: the core library
  • itextsharp.xtra.dll: extra functionality (PDF 2!)
  • itextsharp.pdfa.dll: PDF/A-related functionality
  • itextsharp.xmlworker.dll: XML (and HTML) functionality

This project is hosted on
