// ...

private void link1_CreateMarginalHeaderArea(object sender, CreateAreaEventArgs e) {
    string format = "Page {0} of {1}";
    e.Graph.Font = e.Graph.DefaultFont;
    e.Graph.BackColor = Color.Transparent;

    RectangleF r = new RectangleF(0, 0, 0, e.Graph.Font.Height);

    PageInfoBrick brick = e.Graph.DrawPageInfo(PageInfo.NumberOfTotal, format, 
        Color.Black, r, BorderSide.None);
    brick.Alignment = BrickAlignment.Far;
    brick.AutoWidth = true;

    brick = e.Graph.DrawPageInfo(PageInfo.DateTime, "", Color.Black, r, BorderSide.None);
    brick.Alignment = BrickAlignment.Near;
    brick.AutoWidth = true;
