Examples

Shows how to create headers and footers in a document using DocumentBuilder.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Specify that we want different headers and footers for first, even and odd pages.
builder.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = true;
builder.PageSetup.OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter = true;

// Create the headers, then add three pages to the document to display each header type.
builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst);
builder.Write("Header for the first page");
builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderEven);
builder.Write("Header for even pages");
builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary);
builder.Write("Header for all other pages");

builder.MoveToSection(0);
builder.Writeln("Page1");
builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);
builder.Writeln("Page2");
builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);
builder.Writeln("Page3");

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "DocumentBuilder.HeadersAndFooters.docx");

Shows how to enable or disable primary headers/footers.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Below are two types of header/footers.
// 1 -  The "First" header/footer, which appears on the first page of the section.
builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderFirst);
builder.Writeln("First page header.");

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.FooterFirst);
builder.Writeln("First page footer.");

// 2 -  The "Primary" header/footer, which appears on every page in the section.
// We can override the primary header/footer by a first and an even page header/footer. 
builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.HeaderPrimary);
builder.Writeln("Primary header.");

builder.MoveToHeaderFooter(HeaderFooterType.FooterPrimary);
builder.Writeln("Primary footer.");

builder.MoveToSection(0);
builder.Writeln("Page 1.");
builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);
builder.Writeln("Page 2.");
builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);
builder.Writeln("Page 3.");

// Each section has a "PageSetup" object that specifies page appearance-related properties
// such as orientation, size, and borders.
// Set the "DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter" property to "true" to apply the first header/footer to the first page.
// Set the "DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter" property to "false"
// to make the first page display the primary header/footer.
builder.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = differentFirstPageHeaderFooter;

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter.docx");

Shows how to track the order in which a text replacement operation traverses nodes.

public void Order(bool differentFirstPageHeaderFooter)

            // Using a different header/footer for the first page will affect the search order.
            firstPageSection.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = differentFirstPageHeaderFooter;
            doc.Range.Replace(new Regex("(header|footer)"), "", options);
