PageArea.Content Property

Provides access to a collection of strings, representing the content of a page header or page footer.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraPrinting
Assembly:DevExpress.Printing.v19.2.Core.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: StringCollection
A System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection object, containing content strings.

Expanded Remarks

The Content collection should always contain three strings: the first to be aligned to the left page margin, the second to be displayed in the middle between the left and right margins, and the third to be aligned to the right page margin. If you don't want to include anything in the left area or the middle area of the header or footer, simply add the empty string as the first or second element in the collection.

Below is the list of special strings which can be used to insert page information. Note that these strings can differ from those listed below if the XtraPrinting Library is localized, and uses a language other than English. In this case, the current values of the corresponding PreviewStringId members should be used.

  • "[Page #]" (represented by the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Localization.PreviewStringId.PageInfo_PageNumber field);
  • "[Page # of Pages #]" (represented by the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Localization.PreviewStringId.PageInfo_PageNumberOfTotal field);
  • "[Date Printed]" (represented by the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Localization.PreviewStringId.PageInfo_PageDate field);
  • "[Time Printed]" (represented by the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Localization.PreviewStringId.PageInfo_PageTime field);
  • "[User Name]" (represented by the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Localization.PreviewStringId.PageInfo_PageUserName field);
  • "[Image 0]", "[Image 1]", ... "[Image N]" (where N is the index of the image in the DevExpress.XtraPrinting.Link.Images collection).

Expanded Example

This example demonstrates how to use the link's PageHeaderFooter to add extra information to the document's page header.

Tip

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1021.
