How to Add Footer in PDF document using Aspose.PDF for .NET

Can I get an example of how I would add a footer to a pdf stream I have. The stream is the concatenation of two pdf documents. Please refer to Concatenate Issue for an open issue I have with that.


In the footer of the pdf which is a stream object I would like to add the page x of y right justified and a date/time stamp on the left.

I have a seen what appears to be a couple different options to accomplish this but I am not sure:
1) What is the right way/easiest method (given that I have a stream object)
2) Why the samples I have tried do not work

Hi Robert,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for sharing the details.

Please see the following documentation links as per your requirement:

Add Page Number in a PDF File (Facades)

Add Footer in a PDF File (Facades)

Add Text Stamp on All Pages in a PDF File (Facades)

Also, as per your scenario, please refer to the following code sample regarding concatenation of PDF files and then adding page stamp and date in the footer.

//create PdfFileEditor object

PdfFileEditor pdfEditor = new PdfFileEditor();

//output stream

FileStream outputStream = new FileStream("D:/AP Data/Dec2011/footer.pdf", FileMode.Create);

//input streams

FileStream inputStream1 = new FileStream("D:/AP Data/Dec2011/input1.pdf", FileMode.Open);

FileStream inputStream2 = new FileStream("D:/AP Data/Dec2011/input2.pdf", FileMode.Open);

//concatenate file

pdfEditor.Concatenate(inputStream1, inputStream2, outputStream);

//open document

PdfFileStamp fileStamp = new PdfFileStamp(outputStream, outputStream);

//get total number of pages

int totalPages = new PdfFileInfo(outputStream).NumberOfPages;

//create formatted text for page number

FormattedText formattedText = new FormattedText("Page # Of " + totalPages, System.Drawing.Color.Black, System.Drawing.Color.White, Aspose.Pdf.Facades.FontStyle.Courier, EncodingType.Winansi, false, 10);

//set starting number for first page; you might want to start from 2 or more

fileStamp.StartingNumber = 1;

//add page number

fileStamp.AddPageNumber(formattedText, 1);

//create formatted text for page number

FormattedText formattedText2 = new FormattedText(DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString(), System.Drawing.Color.Black, System.Drawing.Color.White, Aspose.Pdf.Facades.FontStyle.Courier, EncodingType.Winansi, false, 10);

//add footer

fileStamp.AddFooter(formattedText2, 5);

//save updated PDF

fileStamp.Close();

outputStream.Close();

inputStream1.Close();

inputStream2.Close();

Thank You & Best Regards,

Thanks for your response. Looks like the bug identified in my previous post (PDFNEWNET-32674 ) is allows hitting me on this one as well. I can get this to work fine using the example provided but when I use the memory streams it fails with the same error. Looks like I really need the above bug fixed

The bug I had reported in (PDFNEWNET-32674) and post Aspose.Pdf for .NET 6.6.0.

Problem is if I try to add a footer using the methods above I am getting an error "File does not begin '%PDF-'."

Attached is a sample project showing the issue
