iText 7 relative column width no longer working starting iText 7.0.2

fixed the issue. Will look into that further The table layout algoritm changed in version 7.0.2 as is stated in the API docs (http://itextsupport.com/apidocs/itext7/latest/com/itextpdf/layout/element/Table.html#Table-float:A-boolean-). The simplest solution is to add a second parameter with the value true to the constructor of Table:
Table htable = new Table(new float[] {3, 8, 5, 10, 5, 10, 30}, true);

pdf created using itext jar giving error(not supported or damaged) at opening ,I am using itext version 5.3.0

I wish did fix the issue. The PdfWriter coupled with a Document stores the page content when the page is finished. A page is finished as soon as either the next page is started or the `Document is closed.
In case of as little content as in the OP's sample on only a single page and without a close call, therefore, it is not surprising that the OP observed that the size of file is 0 byte.

iText column width wrong

With these it helps Summary
If you are only using it to generate PDF tables instead of needing RTF and HTML output, then it might be better to use the PdfPTable class [Table is now unsupported] which is better supported and less prone to quirks (as explained here: PdfpTable vs. Table (vs. SimpleTable?)).

hop of those help? Please upgrade to the latest version of iText - 7.1.x line - and use the code below to create a table with columns of even width:
Table headerTable = new Table(UnitValue.createPercentArray(new float[]{5,5,5}));

Get absolute width from PdfPTable column (iText)

To fix the issue you can do Issue and explanation
The function table.getAbsoluteWidths() relies on the requirement that totalWidth of the table must be set, hence table.getTotalWidth() > 0.
this.absoluteWidths[k] = this.totalWidth * this.relativeWidths[k] / total;

Can you determine column-width in iText based on input (e.g. a string)?

Tag : java , By : changke

I wish this help you I am working on a project using iText and Java. In the project, I will be making a pdf. In this pdf, there will be multiple tables and they will have changing column counts and content, which means the column-widths have to be determined in a flexible way too. , What was needed was to split the string into an int[], like so:
String inputFromDatabase = "1,5";
String[] p = inputFromDatabase.trim().split(",");
int[] ans = new int[p.length];
for (int a = 0; a < p.length; a++) {
    ans[a] = Integer.parseInt(p[a]);
