Property Value

Type Description

An object that contains footnote options.


Use the FootnoteOptions properties to specify the footnote format, location and layout.

The NumberingFormat, StartNumber, and RestartType properties allow you to change footnote’s format. If the RestartType property is set to NoteRestartType.NewSection or NoteRestartType.NewPage, the StartNumber property value is ignored.

The code sample below shows how to change the footnotes format so they appear as follows:


using (RichEditDocumentServer wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())
    Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
    FootnoteOptions footnoteOptions = document.Sections[0].FootnoteOptions;
    footnoteOptions.NumberingFormat = NumberingFormat.UpperRoman;
    footnoteOptions.StartNumber = 5;

The Position property allows you to specify one of following footnote locations:

Use FootnoteOptions.ColumnCount property to divide footnotes into columns. This property is ignored when a document is displayed in the RichEditControl. However, you can set this property in code and save its value to a file for further processing in Microsoft Word or other word processing applications.
