UpdatePageLayout

Document.UpdatePageLayout method

Rebuilds the page layout of the document.

public void UpdatePageLayout()

Remarks

This method formats a document into pages and updates the page number related fields in the document such as PAGE, PAGES, PAGEREF and REF. The up-to-date page layout information is required for a correct rendering of the document to fixed-page formats.

This method is automatically invoked when you first convert a document to PDF, XPS, image or print it. However, if you modify the document after rendering and then attempt to render it again - Aspose.Words will not update the page layout automatically. In this case you should call UpdatePageLayout before rendering again.

Examples

Shows when to recalculate the page layout of the document.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "Rendering.docx");

// Saving a document to PDF, to an image, or printing for the first time will automatically
// cache the layout of the document within its pages.
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Document.UpdatePageLayout.1.pdf");

// Modify the document in some way.
doc.Styles["Normal"].Font.Size = 6;
doc.Sections[0].PageSetup.Orientation = Aspose.Words.Orientation.Landscape;

// In the current version of Aspose.Words, modifying the document does not automatically rebuild 
// the cached page layout. If we wish for the cached layout
// to stay up to date, we will need to update it manually.
doc.UpdatePageLayout();

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Document.UpdatePageLayout.2.pdf");
