I am testing HTML2PDF v3.2 and I have some trouble understanding how to work out the baseurl parameter

html.LoadHTMLString Page.Value, BaseUrl


My file is at this url : http://myserver/myfolder/doc.html

My first image is at this url : http://myserver/myfolder/files/image1.gif
<img src=files/image1.gif>
My second image is at this url : http://myserver/imagefolder/image2.gif
<img src=/imagefolder/image2.gif>

if i record the html file on an other PC and modify it in order to add <base href="http://myserver/myfolder/">, it works fine (all images are displayed in my browser

But I can't make it work with html2PDF with baseurl=http://myserver/myfolder/

Any suggestion ?

Dear Thomas,

Try to not use BaseUrl at all ( "" - empty). I think it can helps.

Thank you very much !

Best regards,

Dear Thomas,

Please check Internet Explorer settings - "show images" must be turned on.

BaseUrl only affects PDF URL links generation, it is not used to modify HTML source to change path for images. To correclty convert any HTML to PDF, you should open it in IE, and it must be rendered OK. If IE cannot render it properly, Add-On also cannot convert it. If you leave Base URL field empty in test utility dialog, you'll get correct PDF.

Thank you very much !

Best regards,
Two Pilots

I try to use HTML2PDF v3.2 and I fill the fileld BaseURL in the method LoadHTMLString with the value: "D:\MyFolder\MySubFolder\", but it doesn't work correctly because doesn't print the image. This is the HTML code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<img src="bse.jpg" width="697" height="218">

Where is that I wrong?
Thanks and regards

Dear Alessandro,

BaseURL does not affect images loading process. It's only used to cahnge URL links in generated PDF. To load all images, you need to write HTML which will be loaded by IE correctly, with all images.

Thank you very much !

Best regards,
