PdfPageNumberField in PdfGridCell

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

Hi Martin,
Thank you for using Syncfusion product.
We do not have support for drawing the page number using PdfNumerField class in a particular PdfGridcell value. Currently , we have the support to draw the text and another grid(nested grid) in a particular grid cell. However you can manually calculate the page number and  set as grid cell value.
You can refer below link for the usage of page number in PDF footer.
Please let us know if you have any further assistance.

Hi Martin,
We can calculate the page number using  BeginPageLayout event in PdfGrid. We have created the sample for calculating the page number manually in PdfGrid.
Please refer the below code snippet :
//call the events


//Draw grid to the page of PDF document.

pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(10, 10), layoutFormat);

private void pdfGrid_BeginPageLayout(object sender, BeginPageLayoutEventArgs e)


//Set page number when each page starts
(sender as PdfGrid).Rows[i].Cells[0].Value = "Page - "+pageNumebr.ToString();
Please refer the sample in the below link:
Please try this and let us know if you have any further assistance.
