Headers and Footers

Each section in the document can have its own set of headers and footers. If no headers or footers are defined for a given section, the headers and footers from the previous section (if any) are used.

To enter header (footer) editing mode, use the EditPageHeaderCommand or the EditPageFooterCommand commands.

You can also use the Section.BeginUpdateHeader - Section.EndUpdateHeader or the Section.BeginUpdateFooter - Section.EndUpdateFooter method pairs, to create and modify the header/footer programmatically.

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=T213968.

The following code snippet opens the header of the first section of the document for editing. The header is of the HeaderFooterType.First type, so it is displayed for the first page only if the corresponding mode is switched on (use the Section.DifferentFirstPage property). Then, the string of text and a PAGE are inserted into the document and the Section.EndUpdateHeader is called to finalize the modification.

The header (or footer) can be different for odd pages, even pages or the first page. Use the Document.DifferentOddAndEvenPages property to distinguish between odd and even pages in the document and the Section.DifferentFirstPage property to display a different header/footer (if any) for the first page of a section.

To switch display modes, use the ToggleDifferentFirstPageCommand and ToggleDifferentOddAndEvenPagesCommand commands.

To insert fields displaying a current page number or the total number of pages, use the InsertPageNumberFieldCommand and the InsertPageCountFieldCommand commands. You can also insert required fields manually, as described in the How to: Insert Page Numbers in Header or Footer document.

To modify text selected in the header/footer (Document.Selection) or the text at the cursor position (Document.CaretPosition), use the DocumentRange.BeginUpdateDocument or the DocumentPosition.BeginUpdateDocument methods.
