Quick start

Install

Download the latest release zip, worth having around for the Demo application.
Either reference the proper DLL's from the downloaded release zip: HtmlRenderer.dll and one of: HtmlRenderer.WinForms.dll, HtmlRenderer.WPF.dll, HtmlRenderer.PdfSharp.dll. Note: add the targeted framework dlls you are targeting in your project, for PdfSharp you will also need to download PdfSharp dll.
Or, simply install the proper NuGet package using Visual Studio or command line:

        htmlPanel.Text = "<p><h1>Hello World</h1>This is html rendered text</p>";
