public interface SectionLineNumbering


The SectionLineNumbering interface is accessible via the Section.LineNumbering property of the document’s section.

By default, line numbering is suppressed. To switch line numbering on, set the AllowDisplayLineNumbers property of the required view to true and also set the SectionLineNumbering.CountBy property to any non-zero positive integer value.


View Example

Document document = server.Document;
document.LoadDocument("Documents\\Grimm.docx", DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.DocumentFormat.OpenXml);
document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;
Section sec = document.Sections[0];
sec.LineNumbering.CountBy = 2;
sec.LineNumbering.Start = 1;
sec.LineNumbering.Distance = 0.25f;
sec.LineNumbering.RestartType = LineNumberingRestart.NewSection;
