Method 1

You don’t set the width of a cell.

you should set the width of the columns. And you can do that by applying them on the table object:

float[] widths = new float[] { 1f, 2f };
table.SetWidths(widths);

The answer from Neha is to set the width of the table object

Method 2

VB:

Dim intTblWidth() As Integer = {12, 10, 26, 10}

C#:
int[] intTblWidth = { 12, 10, 26, 10 };

Method 3

int  count=Gridview1.Columns.Count
PdfPTable table = new PdfPTable(count);
float[] columnWidths = new float[count];
for (int v = 0; v < count; v++)
{
    if (v == 0) { 
    columnWidths[v] = 10f;
    }
    else if (v == 2)
    {
        columnWidths[v] = 30f;
    }
    else if(v == 3)
    {
        columnWidths[v] = 15f;
    }
    else if(v == 4)
    {
        columnWidths[v] = 18f;
    }
    else if(v == 5|| v == 6|| v == 7)
    {
        columnWidths[v] = 22f;
    }
    else
    {
        columnWidths[v] = 20f;
    }
}

table.SetWidths(columnWidths);

Method 4

#region Name..!!

            PdfPTable tblName = new PdfPTable(3);
            tblName.WidthPercentage = 98f;
            float[] colWidthsaccing4 = { 100, 500, 700 };
            tblName.SetWidths(colWidthsaccing4);
            PdfPCell celladdingo4;
            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("  ", Smallspace));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 1;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0;
            celladdingo4.Colspan = 2;
            tblHeader6.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("1.", TableFontmini_ARBold8Nor));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 1;
            
            celladdingo4.PaddingBottom = 5f;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0.5f;
            tblName.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("  Name :", TableFontmini_ARBold8Nor));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 0;
            celladdingo4.PaddingBottom = 5f;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0.5f;
            tblName.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase(" " +dt.Rows[0]["EmpName"].ToString(), TableFontmini_ARBold8Nor));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 0;
            celladdingo4.PaddingBottom = 5f;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0.5f;
            tblName.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("  ", Smallspace));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 1;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0;
            celladdingo4.Colspan = 2;
            tblHeader6.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("  ", Smallspace));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 1;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0;
            celladdingo4.Colspan = 2;
            tblHeader6.AddCell(celladdingo4);

            celladdingo4 = new PdfPCell(new Phrase("  ", Smallspace));
            celladdingo4.HorizontalAlignment = 1;
            celladdingo4.BorderWidth = 0;
            celladdingo4.Colspan = 2;
            
            tblHeader6.AddCell(celladdingo4);


            doc.Add(tblName);

            #endregion

Method 5

cell.width = 200f; you have to put capital W on width correct is cell.Width = 200f;
