Property Value

Type Description
PageArea

A PageArea object representing the page footer.

Remarks

Use the Footer property to insert some information (system information like page numbers or current date and user name, or any custom information) into the page footer. For this, add three strings (left, center and right) to the collection, returned by the PageArea.Content property of the Footer object.

Also, the PageArea.Font property specifies the font used to draw the page footer's text, and the PageArea.LineAlignment property specifies to which edge (top, center or bottom) of the page footer its content should be aligned.

Examples

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