Obtaining the current page number from the footer

Hi,

My current requirement is to obtain the current page number from the footer and insert unique shapes collection based on the current page number.

This request is related to the following thread

http://www.aspose.com/community/search/search-results.aspx?u=114666&o=DateDescending

My intention is to get the current page number from the footer. Is there any sample to obtain the current page number ?

Hi Hadi,


Thanks for your inquiry. Microsoft Word document is a flow document and it does not contain any information about its layout into lines and pages. So there is no way to determine where page starts or ends. The page numbers are represented by a PAGE field in MS Word documents and this field is related to the page layout algorithms in Aspose.Words. When you open a document with MS Word, it calculates the numbers on the fly.

You can achieve your requirement by using the utility method available in the attached ‘PageNumberFinder’ class.

PageNumberFinder finder = new PageNumberFinder(doc);<o:p></o:p>

int page = finder.GetPage(doc.LastChild);

Hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any more queries.

Hi,

I have executed the following code :

PageNumberFinder finder = new PageNumberFinder(doc);<?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O />

int page = finder.GetPage(doc.LastChild);

The application returns the 'page' value = 1 which is incorrect. The document itself contains 10 pages in total.

Could you please provide more documentation on this 'PageNumberFinder' including the usage guide ?

Hi Hadi,


Thanks for your inquiry. There is no web documentation available for this utility. However, you can find the comments for most of the methods in PageFinder.cs. Could you please attach your input Word document here for testing? I will investigate the issue on my side and provide you more information.
