Android-PdfMyXml Android Arsenal Jitpack

convert your android

layouts into PDF document, works on all versions of Android.


How to use

Option 1: Simply fork or download the project, you can also download and create

file yourself.

Option 2: Jitpack

Add Jitpack in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }

Add to your dependencies:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.HendrixString:Android-PdfMyXml:{Tag}' // the latest version is "v1.0.1"

Notable features

  • should work on all Android versions
  • completely scalable
  • supports bitmap re usage.
  • production proved code. Used in a commercial project.


1. create XML layouts

First create XML layouts. give it dimensions in pixels (and for all it's sub views) and proportions according landscape or portrait according to ratio 1:1.41.

page1.xml ```java <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


you can create as many as pages/templates as you need.

2. Implement a View renderer

implement your View renderer by extending

or by anonymously instantiating it and injecting the layout id. the initView(View view) will supply you an inflated View automatically. There are other options but I wont cover it now. ```java AbstractViewRenderer page = new AbstractViewRenderer(context, R.layout.page1) { private String _text;
public void setText(String text) {
    _text = text;

@Override protected void initView(View view) { TextView tv_hello = (TextView)view.findViewById(R.id.tv_hello); tv_hello.setText(_text); }


// you can reuse the bitmap if you want page.setReuseBitmap(true);

#### 3. Build the PDF document
Use `PdfDocument` or `PdfDocument.Builder` to add pages and render and run it all at background with progress bar.
PdfDocument doc            = new PdfDocument(ctx);

// add as many pages as you have doc.addPage(page);

doc.setRenderWidth(2115); doc.setRenderHeight(1500); doc.setOrientation(PdfDocument.A4_MODE.LANDSCAPE); doc.setProgressTitle(R.string.gen_please_wait); doc.setProgressMessage(R.string.gen_pdf_file); doc.setFileName("test"); doc.setSaveDirectory(_ctx.getExternalFilesDir(null)); doc.setInflateOnMainThread(false); doc.setListener(new PdfDocument.Callback() { @Override public void onComplete(File file) { Log.i(PdfDocument.TAG_PDF_MY_XML, "Complete"); }

public void onError(Exception e) {
    Log.i(PdfDocument.TAG_PDF_MY_XML, "Error");



or use

```java new PdfDocument.Builder(ctx).addPage(page).orientation(PdfDocument.A4MODE.LANDSCAPE) .progressMessage(R.string.genpdffile).progressTitle(R.string.genpleasewait) .renderWidth(2115).renderHeight(1500) .saveDirectory(ctx.getExternalFilesDir(null)); .filename("test") .listener(new PdfDocument.Callback() { @Override public void onComplete(File file) { Log.i(PdfDocument.TAGPDFMY_XML, "Complete"); }
                         public void onError(Exception e) {
                             Log.i(PdfDocument.TAG_PDF_MY_XML, "Error");
