SubDocument BeginUpdateFooter()


Type Description

A SubDocument instance that is the footer being edited.


Use the Section.BeginUpdateFooter - Section.EndUpdateFooter method pair to edit primary (the HeaderFooterType.Primary type) footer content. If the document has no footer as yet, this method creates a footer of the HeaderFooterType.Primary type and opens it for editing.

You can use the Section.HasFooter property to determine whether the document already has a footer which is the same for all pages (a footer of the HeaderFooterType.Primary type).


View Example

using (RichEditDocumentServer wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())
Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
    Section firstSection = document.Sections[0];

    // Check whether the document already has a header (the same header for all pages).
    if (!firstSection.HasHeader(HeaderFooterType.Primary))
        //If not, create an empty header.
        SubDocument headerDocument = firstSection.BeginUpdateHeader();
