as per my requirement I created a PDF using iTextsharp and i want upload it to a specific document set (dynamic) in a document library when an event receiver is triggered from a list.

Can anyone please help me with this ?

  • Do you want idea to implement it or are you facing any issues in your code ? – Karthik Jaganathan Nov 18 '19 at 9:22
  • I just want to know how to get the URL of a document set which is present in a document library, not the relative url the absolute url so that i can add the byte file ex: SPFile f = mylibrary.Files.add("server/sitecol/doclib/docset/file.pdf",bytes,true) I just to get the URL – Samrat Guha Nov 19 '19 at 8:00

My sample test code for your reference.

public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)
            using (SPWeb web = properties.Web)
                using (System.IO.MemoryStream memoryStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
                    Document document = new Document(PageSize.A4, 10, 10, 10, 10);

                    PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, memoryStream);

                    Paragraph para = new Paragraph(properties.ListItem["Title"].ToString());


                    string text = @"you are successfully created pdf file.";
                    Paragraph paragraph = new Paragraph();
                    paragraph.SpacingBefore = 10;
                    paragraph.SpacingAfter = 10;
                    paragraph.Alignment = Element.ALIGN_LEFT;
                    paragraph.Font = FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.HELVETICA, 12f, BaseColor.GREEN);

                    byte[] bytes = memoryStream.ToArray();

                    string libraryName = "doc";
                    SPList lib = web.Lists.TryGetList(libraryName);
                    SPFolder folder = web.GetFolder(lib.RootFolder.ServerRelativeUrl + "/testDocumentSet");

                    string dsturl = folder.ServerRelativeUrl + "/test.pdf";
                    SPFile myfile = folder.Files.Add(dsturl, bytes, true);                    


Don't use encoded url in c# code.

I tested in my local SharePoint 2013 by creating a document set called [test, aaads], the code works.

SPFolder folder = web.GetFolder(lib.RootFolder.ServerRelativeUrl + "/test, aaads");
string fullurl= web.Url+folder.Url + "/test.pdf";

  • The document set is having a comma and space Like Guha, Samrat and the url looks like '..../Guha%2C%20Samrat' is there any way to solve this ?? Or else I have to create a string and genrate the asked format. I also require to send an email so that the user gets direct access to the pdf I created. – Samrat Guha Nov 19 '19 at 13:14
