How to align the header/footer to left or center or right?


Hi, support,

I used Words.dll based on to add new header/footer, but failed to set its alignment property.
My codes is as follow:

document = New Global.Aspose.Words.Document(sFile)
For Each section As Global.Aspose.Words.Section In document.Sections
For Each Header As Global.Aspose.Words.HeaderFooter In section.HeadersFooters
If Header.HeaderFooterType = Global.Aspose.Words.HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary Or _
Header.HeaderFooterType = Global.Aspose.Words.HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst Or _
Header.HeaderFooterType = Global.Aspose.Words.HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven Then
End If
num = &H21
font = builder.Font
builder.Font.Scaling = num
builder.Font.Spacing = -1
builder.Font.Size = 9
builder.Bold = 0
builder.Italic = 0
builder.Underline = 0
builder.Font.StrikeThrough = 0
builder.ParagraphFormat.Borders.Bottom.LineStyle = Global.Aspose.Words.LineStyle.Single
builder.Font.Color = LColor.BackColor
builder.Font.Name = CmbFontname.Text
builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = Global.Aspose.Words.ParagraphAlignment.Center
’ set the alignment of added header to center, but the alignment of the added header in the output file is still left not center. In some case, there is one more redundant hard return added to the header.
builder.Write(headContent) ’ add new header content to the header section

How to make the builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = Global.Aspose.Words.ParagraphAlignment.Center valid and avoid one more redundant hard return for the added header.

Thanks for your help!
