Page numbering in headers and footers for RTF printing

We want to take RTF content and print it out including headers and footers without need of an external application like Word. It is a WinForms application is written in C#.

Questions:
1) Will the footer support Page x of y?
2) Can the page numbering and count be specified to start at a value greater than 1?
3) Can the footer begin on the second page?

I have downloaded the trial copy of Aspose Words and if we can get a positive response the the page numbering issue will go forward with dev and purchase a license.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Hi Zev,


Thanks for your interest in Aspose.Words for .NET. Yes, you can meet all these requirements by using Aspose.Words.

Zev:
1) Will the footer support Page x of y?
3) Can the footer begin on the second page?

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

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// write some content in body

builder.Writeln("first page");

builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);

builder.Writeln("other page");

PageSetup ps = builder.PageSetup;

ps.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = true;

// create empty first page header/footer

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst);

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.FooterFirst);

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary);

builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Right;

builder.Writeln("Right header");

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.FooterPrimary);

builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Right;

builder.Write("Page ");

builder.InsertField("PAGE");

builder.Write(" of ");

builder.InsertField("NUMPAGES");

doc.Save(MyDir + @"16.12.0.docx");

doc.Save(MyDir + @"16.12.0.pdf");

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

PageSetup ps = builder.PageSetup;

ps.RestartPageNumbering = true;

ps.PageStartingNumber = 5;

// write some content in body

builder.Writeln("first page");

builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);

builder.Writeln("other page");

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.FooterPrimary);

builder.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Right;

builder.Write("Page ");

builder.InsertField("PAGE");

doc.Save(MyDir + @"16.12.0.docx");

doc.Save(MyDir + @"16.12.0.pdf");


Hope, this helps.

Best regards,
