Field Value

Type Description

A header and footer code.


The example below demonstrates how to add a picture to a header and footer.


// Set measurement unit to inches.
workbook.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;
// Access header and footer options.
WorksheetHeaderFooterOptions options = worksheet.HeaderFooterOptions;
// Specify that the first page has a unique header and footer.
options.DifferentFirst = true;

// Insert a picture in the center of the footer.
options.FirstFooter.AddPicture("DxLogo.png", HeaderFooterSection.Center);

// Add an inline picture to the header's left section.
HeaderFooterPicture picture = options.FirstHeader.AddPicture(SpreadsheetImageSource.FromFile("DevAvLogo.png"), HeaderFooterSection.Left);
// Use the &G code to specify the picture position within text.
options.FirstHeader.Left = string.Format("{0}&BDev{1}AV &G", 
    HeaderFooterCode.FontColor(Color.FromArgb(0x05, 0x6f, 0xCE)), HeaderFooterCode.FontColor(Color.FromArgb(0x39, 0xA6, 0xF7)));
// Specify the picture size in inches.
picture.Height = 0.3f;
picture.Width = 0.3f;


Call the WorksheetHeaderFooter.AddPicture method before you use the &G code to insert an inline picture into a header or footer. System.InvalidOperationException occurs when the Spreadsheet cannot find the picture.
