Display PdfPageNumberField in a PdfGrid Cell

I want to insert the page number (PdfPageNumberField) into a grid cell (in the grid header).  Can't figure out how to do that.

I'm sorry but the sample project you provided just sticks the page number in the top left hand corner of the page.  If that happened to be where the cell was it was just lucky.

I would think the line: compositeField.Draw(myPage.Graphics)
just dumps the thing on page. while: pageheaderRow.Cells[9].Value = compositeField;
isn't going to do anything as no draw is executed.  Unless I'm misunderstanding some sort of redirection.  Anyway in tests the page number just blots in the top left of the page and it's not useful there.

Hi Mark,


Sorry for the inconvenience caused, for now we don’t have support for adding page number in Pdf Grid at respective cell position, whereas this is possible using PdfLightTable, I have attached a simple sample for your reference can you please check through it and let me know if you need any further assistance, I have included a code snippet about the working of cell layout event below please look through it.

//This event will be called every time when cell is created

private void lightTable_BeginCellLayout(object sender, BeginCellLayoutEventArgs args)


//Use to draw at specified cell index

if (args.CellIndex == 1)


//Getting the boundaries of the Cell

RectangleF rect = new System.Drawing.RectangleF(args.Bounds.X, args.Bounds.Y, args.Bounds.Width, args.Bounds.Height);

//Create page number field

PdfPageNumberField pageNumber = new PdfPageNumberField(font, brush);

PdfPageCountField count = new PdfPageCountField(font, brush);

PdfCompositeField compositeField = new PdfCompositeField(font, brush,Page NO {0}", pageNumber);

//Drawing Page number in  respective boundaries of cell

compositeField.Draw(args.Graphics, new System.Drawing.PointF(rect.X,   rect.Y));
