Converting SVG to PNG using C#


Question

I've been trying to convert SVG images to PNG using C#, without having to write too much code. Can anyone recommend a library or example code for doing this?

You can call the command-line version of inkscape to do this:

Also there is a C# SVG rendering engine, primarily designed to allow SVG files to be used on the web on codeplex that might suit your needs if that is your problem:

There is a much easier way using the library http://svg.codeplex.com/ (Newer version @GIT, @NuGet). Here is my code

var byteArray = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(svgFileContents);
using (var stream = new MemoryStream(byteArray))
{
    var svgDocument = SvgDocument.Open(stream);
    var bitmap = svgDocument.Draw();
    bitmap.Save(path, ImageFormat.Png);
}
