PDF generation from an ASP.NET App.

Any recommendation of a well written and supported library for the dynamic PDF generation within an ASP.NET application?

While I haven't tried it with ASP.NET, I know that Crystal Reports does a fine job of building PDF files. I've used it with console apps on the backend plenty of times.

I've been using the .NET assemblies provided by ActivePDF Studio ( www.activepdf.com ).  They give code examples that I've been using for a few weeks, albeit on a very low volume site...I'm not sure how well it would do on a higher volume server.

I can personally vouch for the quality of this component. I have been using it under fairly stressful conditions for months without even a hitch. Took about 30 minutes to get it going and I've forgotten about it even since (a good thing).

This is free, fairly easy to use, and with plenty of features:

We have used it in quite a few asp.net web applications. Works great!
