Dear Team,

How to insert page number in header of the document using aspose.words java. please give solution for this scenario.

Please try using the following code:

Document doc = new Document("D:\\temp\\in.docx");
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.insertField(FieldType.FIELD_PAGE, true);

Dear Team,

Possible to add the same page stamp within body text instead of header.I have using this code code.zip (517 Bytes)

My output : output.zip (17.4 KB)

Expected Output : Exp_out.zip (15.6 KB)

Regards,

Please try using the following code:

Document doc = new Document("D:\\temp\\input.docx");
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

NodeCollection paragraphs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);
LayoutCollector collector = new LayoutCollector(doc);

NodeCollection paras = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.PARAGRAPH, true);
int pageIndex = 1;
for (int i=0; i<paras.getCount(); i++)
{
Paragraph para = (Paragraph)paras.get(i);
if (collector.getStartPageIndex(para) == pageIndex)
{
builder.moveToParagraph(i, 0);
builder.insertField(FieldType.FIELD_PAGE, false);

pageIndex++;
}
}

doc.updatePageLayout();
doc.updateFields();

doc.save("D:\\temp\\awjava-18.2.docx");

Dear Hafeez,

Thanks for your quick replying. Its working fine, But some pages comes not properly.

I have attached my output awjava-18.2.zip (1.7 MB). Please check this document. Page 3,6 and 8 are not placed properly.

Please also ZIP and upload your input Word document (you have generated awjava-18.2.docx from) here for testing. We will investigate the issue further on our end and provide you more information.

Input Document: sample.zip (2.6 MB)

Please try using the following code:

Document doc = new Document("D:\\temp\\Sample\\sample.doc");

Node[] runs = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.RUN, true).toArray();
for (int i = 0; i < runs.length; i++) {
Run run = (Run) runs[i];
int length = run.getText().length();

Run currentNode = run;
for (int x = 1; x < length; x++) {
currentNode = splitRun(currentNode, 1);
}
}

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

NodeCollection smallRuns = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.RUN, true);
LayoutCollector collector = new LayoutCollector(doc);

int pageIndex = 1;
for (int i=0; i<smallRuns.getCount(); i++)
{
Run smallRun = (Run)smallRuns.get(i);
if (collector.getStartPageIndex(smallRun) == pageIndex)
{
builder.moveTo(smallRun);
builder.insertField(FieldType.FIELD_PAGE, false);

pageIndex++;
}
}

doc.updatePageLayout();
doc.updateFields();

doc.save("D:\\temp\\Sample\\awjava-18.2.doc");

Dear Hafeez,

I have used below code but not clear. I need to add page number in every page in first of the line. In that code not properly added. Please give proper result for my expected output. I have attached sample for your reference.

Below code Defects : some page number is inserted twice in a page. some page number not in document.

Expected Output : Paper revised.zip (59.0 KB)

We are checking this scenario and will get back to you soon.

We can suggest you a simpler way to insert numbers on the top left side of each Page. Please see these [input.zip (2.6 MB) output.zip (1.6 MB)] documents and try using the following code:

private static void insertText(Document doc) throws Exception {
Shape shape = new Shape(doc, ShapeType.TEXT_PLAIN_TEXT);

shape.setLeft(36);
shape.setTop(57);
shape.setWidth(72);
shape.setHeight(36);

shape.setRelativeHorizontalPosition(RelativeHorizontalPosition.PAGE);
shape.setRelativeVerticalPosition(RelativeVerticalPosition.PAGE);
shape.setWrapType(WrapType.NONE);

shape.appendChild(new Paragraph(doc));

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder((doc));
builder.moveTo(shape.getFirstChild());
builder.insertField(FieldType.FIELD_PAGE, false);

Paragraph shapePara = new Paragraph(doc);
shapePara.appendChild(shape);

for (Section sect : doc.getSections()) {
}
}

private static void insertIntoHeader(Paragraph shapePara, Section sect, int headerType) throws Exception {
doc.save("D:\\Temp\\Sample\\awjava-18.4.doc");
