I am creating an on demand PDF version of a web page with a report table.

I am running into a problem because my report has line breaks within the table cells using a <BR> html code. When I create the table using Generator, it shows that text as <BR> and does not recognize the line break.

Is there any line break character that this product will recognize inside a text value?

I see a text control for breaking lines, but I can't figure out how to get it into a cell as the cell simplay has a text value.

The <BR> tag is not supported to use in the cell of a table. It will be displayed as normal text. In order to get a new line you will have to use a new line character ("\n") in the string.

Can you please send over the following details to so  we can look into it further?

1.     Code sample which uses static data to recreate the behaviour.
2.     Output PDF.
3.     Exact version and build number of the DynamicPDF DLL file. You can get this information in DLL references properties (Version and Description fields) in Visual Studio.
