C# – iTextSharp “The document has no pages.” error

asp.netc++itextsharp

I'm creating a pdf file with an image. I'm getting the image, first saving it into the server, after creating an iTextSharp image with it;

iTextSharp.text.Image backgroundImage = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(path);

On this line I'm getting an error "The document has no pages."

Here is the StackTrace:

   location: iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfPages.WritePageTree()
   location: iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter.Close()
   location: iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfDocument.Close()

Yesterday code was working well, but weirdly today I'm getting this error. Here is my code:

using (var fs = new FileStream(pdfFileName, FileMode.Create))
{
    using (var pdfDoc = new iTextSharp.text.Document())
    {
        if (orientation == CertificateOrientation.HORIZONTAL)
            pdfDoc.SetPageSize(PageSize.A4.Rotate());
        using (var w = PdfWriter.GetInstance(pdfDoc, fs))
        {
            pdfDoc.Open();
            pdfDoc.NewPage(); // add Page here

            iTextSharp.text.Image backgroundImage = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(path);

            if (orientation == CertificateOrientation.HORIZONTAL)
            {
                backgroundImage.ScaleAbsoluteWidth(Config.PdfActualSizeHorizontal[0]);
                backgroundImage.ScaleAbsoluteHeight(Config.PdfActualSizeHorizontal[1]);
            }
            else if (orientation == CertificateOrientation.VERTICAL)
            {
                backgroundImage.ScaleAbsoluteWidth(Config.PdfActualSizeVertical[0]);
                backgroundImage.ScaleAbsoluteHeight(Config.PdfActualSizeVertical[1]);
            }
            backgroundImage.SetAbsolutePosition(0, 0);
            pdfDoc.Add(backgroundImage);

            pdfDoc.Close();
        }
    }
}

I cant't get the problem. Is there any solution?

EDIT:

I added a line before getting Image instance

pdfDoc.Add(new Paragraph(" "));

After that the error becomes to this:

System.ObjectDisposedException was caught Message=Cannot access a
closed file.

Best Solution

Try this one:

var path ="path of final pdf to save";
var imagePath="path of image that should be paste in final pdf file";
iTextSharp.text.Document document = new iTextSharp.text.Document();
PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, new FileStream(path, FileMode.Create));
iTextSharp.text.Image myImage = iTextSharp.text.Image.GetInstance(imagePath);
myImage.ScaleAbsoluteHeight(document.PageSize.Height);
myImage.ScaleAbsoluteWidth(document.PageSize.Width);
myImage.Alignment = Element.ALIGN_CENTER;
document.Add(myImage);
document.Close();

Thats all.
