We generally use the excellent iText library for generating pdf files using Java.

When we need to display text vertically it is simply a matter of rotating the cell containing the text by 90 degrees as shown in the following example.

PdfPCell cell = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("Some text I want to be vertical"));
cell.setRotation(90);

The same technique can be used to render text at any angle.

    It does not work, for me the method setRotation is undefined for object PdfPCell.
    I try to use cell.rotate() but it doesn’t not work.
