How to add pagnumber in the footer of a PDF

Hi ,

Could you kindly let me know how to add the current page number in the footer of the PDF.

I am already using PDFFileStamp to add the file name of the PDF in the footer,I want to display the Page number near to this file name like below.

for first page:

Gen Corr - Report of Latest Progress on Matter - Page 1 of 17

and for the last page:

Gen Corr - Report of Latest Progress on Matter - Page 17 of 17

Thank you

Hi Anand,

Tilal shared the information on how to add PageNumber information while creating a new PDF file using Aspose.Pdf for Java. However if you need to add PageNumber information in existing PDF file, please try using addPageNumber(…) method of PdfFileStamp class.


String path = “./examples/resources/”;<o:p></o:p>

String inFile = path + "example2.pdf";

String outFile = path + "example2withpagenumber.pdf";

PdfFileStamp fileStamp = new PdfFileStamp(inFile, outFile);

//add page number

FormattedText ft = new FormattedText("Page # .", new Color(0, 0, 100),

FontStyle.CourierBold, EncodingType.Winansi, false, 10);
