Create pdfs from within .net c#

pdflib vs. reportviewer

advantages
disadvantages


pdflib
create pdfs with attachments
mail merge (blocks) difficult to handle (adobe plugin not working, ...)
bad sourcecode (coding style of pdflib)
operates on strings not with exceptions...


reportviewer

easy layout
export not only in pdf (html, csv, xls,...)
no dedicated pdf creation (only export report)



TO validate:
iText.NET
iText.NET is a Free PDF Library for .NET Framework
ported from java
