Header different for eachpage


I need to add a "parameter" in my header :
I have a title that include the report date (i have this parameter in my code) and for each page in the pdf, i have a different date.
I can't create a title outside the header since content can be on 2 page (when grid has too much line)

Thanks in advance,

Hi Anthony,
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.
We can draw the grid table with particular paginate bounds and can add the different headers using sections for each page. We have created the code according to your requirement.
Please refer to the in the following code example:


// Create a new PdfDocument

PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument();

// Add a page

PdfPage page=document.Pages.Add();

//Create the pdfgrid

PdfGrid pdfGrid = new PdfGrid();

//Add grid columns


//Add the grid row

for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++)


//Assign the values to table

for (int i = 0; i < 30; i++)


pdfGrid.Rows[i].Cells[0].Value = i.ToString() + " Row ";


//Apply the pagination

PdfGridLayoutFormat gformat = new PdfGridLayoutFormat();

gformat.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate;

gformat.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage;

gformat.PaginateBounds = new RectangleF(10, 10, page.GetClientSize().Width, page.GetClientSize().Height);

//Draw the table

pdfGrid.Draw(page, new PointF(0, 10), gformat);

MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();

// Save and close the document.



ms.Position = 0;

//Load the file stream that contains the grid.

PdfLoadedDocument ldoc = new PdfLoadedDocument(ms);

//Create the document.

PdfDocument finalDoc = new PdfDocument();

//set the margins


for (int i = 0; i < ldoc.Pages.Count; i++)


//Get the templates from loadeddocument.

PdfTemplate template = ldoc.Pages[i].CreateTemplate();

//Add the sections

PdfSection section1 = finalDoc.Sections.Add();

PdfPage page1 = section1.Pages.Add();

//Draw the templates

page1.Graphics.DrawPdfTemplate(template, new PointF(0,0),new SizeF(page1.GetClientSize().Width,page1.GetClientSize().Height));

//Including header to the section

section1.Template.Top = AddHeader(finalDoc, DateTime.Now.Date.ToShortDateString());


MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();

//Desired document is saved and opened

SaveFileDialog saveDialog = new SaveFileDialog()


DefaultExt = ".pdf",

Filter = "Adobe PDF Files(*.pdf)|*.pdf",

FilterIndex = 1



using (Stream stream1 = saveDialog.OpenFile())




//close the document



MessageBox.Show("Document has been successfully generated", "Essential PDF", MessageBoxButton.OK);

private PdfPageTemplateElement AddHeader(PdfDocument doc, string title)


RectangleF rect = new RectangleF(0, 0, doc.Pages[0].GetClientSize().Width, 50);

//Create page template

PdfPageTemplateElement header = new PdfPageTemplateElement(rect);

PdfFont font = new PdfStandardFont(PdfFontFamily.Helvetica, 16, PdfFontStyle.Bold);

//Set formattings for the text

PdfStringFormat format = new PdfStringFormat();

format.Alignment = PdfTextAlignment.Center;

format.LineAlignment = PdfVerticalAlignment.Middle;

//Draw title

header.Graphics.DrawString(title, font, PdfBrushes.Black, new RectangleF(0, 0, header.Width, header.Height), format);

header.Graphics.DrawRectangle(PdfPens.Blue, rect);

return header;
