public sealed class XslFoLoadOptions : XmlLoadOptions


XslFoLoadOptions()Creates XslFoLoadOptions object without xsl data.
XslFoLoadOptions(Stream)Creates XslFoLoadOptions object with xsl data.
XslFoLoadOptions(string)Creates XslFoLoadOptions object with xsl data.


BasePath { get; set; }The base path/url from which are searched relative paths to external resources (if any) referenced in loaded SVG file.
DisableFontLicenseVerifications { get; set; }Gets or sets flag to disable any license restrictions for all fonts while loading the file.

The following example shows how to convert XSL-FO file to PDF file

// The path to the documents directory.
string dataDir = @"YOUR_DATA_DIRECTORY";

// The path to your XSL-FO File.
string xslFoFile = Path.Combine(dataDir, "XSLFO-to-PDF.xslfo");

// The path to output PDF File.
string pdfFile = Path.Combine(dataDir, "XSLFO-to-PDF.pdf");

// Initialize XslFoLoadOptions	
XslFoLoadOptions xslFoLoadOptions = new XslFoLoadOptions();
using (Document pdfDocument = new Document(xslFoFile, xslFoLoadOptions))
    // Save PDF file

    ' The path to the documents directory.
    Dim dataDir As String = "YOUR_DATA_DIRECTORY"

    ' The path to your XSL-FO File.
    Dim xslFoFile = Path.Combine(dataDir, "XSLFO-to-PDF.xslfo")

    ' The path to output PDF File.
    Dim pdfFile = Path.Combine(dataDir, "XSLFO-to-PDF.pdf")
    ' Initialize XslFoLoadOptions  
    Dim xslFoLoadOptions As XslFoLoadOptions = New XslFoLoadOptions()
    Using pdfDocument As Document = New Document(xslFoFile, xslFoLoadOptions)
        ' Save PDF file
    End Using
