Hi,
I'm using syncfusion pdf for asp.net core.
I need to set no margin for header and footer and I need to set right and left margin for the rest of the page.
Any suggestion?
Thanks

Hi, thanks for the answer.
My mistake was this:
compositeField.Draw(footer.Graphics);
instead  of
compositeField.Draw(footer.Graphics, new PointF(470, 40));

You pass the location as argument. How can I pass the correct location? Why do you pass 470 as x and 40 as y and not another value?

Hi Mini, 

Thank you for the update.  

We need to specify the location to draw the composite field. So, that it will be rendered in the provided location. We provided the this (470, 40) location to draw the composite field in bottom right corner in the footer template. Here the footer template width is page width and the footer template height is 50. So, we provided 470, 40 in the sample. We can specify the location value based on the requirement.  

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.  

Regards, 
Prakash V

Hi,
I tried but I get the footer cutted off.

The code:

public class PdfBuilder
{
    private PdfDocument _document;
    
    private float _pageWidth => _document.Pages[0].GetClientSize().Width;
    private float _pageHeight => _document.Pages[0].GetClientSize().Height;

    public PdfBuilder()
    {
        _document = new PdfDocument();
    }

    public void SetMargin(float top, float left, float bottom, float right)
    {
        _document.PageSettings.Margins.Top = top;
        _document.PageSettings.Margins.Left = left;
        _document.PageSettings.Margins.Right = bottom;
        _document.PageSettings.Margins.Bottom = right;
    }
    public void AddPageToDocument()
    {                                   
        //Add a page to the document
        _document.Pages.Add();            
    }
    public void AddFooter()
    {
        RectangleF rect = new RectangleF(0, 0, _pageWidth, 50);
        //Create a Page template that can be used as footer.            
        PdfPageTemplateElement footer = new PdfPageTemplateElement(rect);
        PdfFont font = new PdfStandardFont(PdfFontFamily.Helvetica, 7);
        PdfBrush brush = new PdfSolidBrush(Color.Black);
        //Create page number field.
        PdfPageNumberField pageNumber = new PdfPageNumberField(font, brush);
        //Create page count field.
        PdfPageCountField count = new PdfPageCountField(font, brush);
        //Add the fields in composite fields.            
        PdfCompositeField compositeField = new PdfCompositeField(font, brush, "Copyright " + DateTime.Now.Year + " This the company name " + DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString() + "this the website - Pag. {0} / {1}", pageNumber, count);
        compositeField.StringFormat = new PdfStringFormat(PdfTextAlignment.Center);
        compositeField.Bounds = footer.Bounds;
        //Draw the composite field in footer.
        compositeField.Draw(footer.Graphics, new PointF(0, 45));
        //Add the footer template at the bottom.
        _document.Template.Bottom = footer;

    }
}

Where am I doing wrong?

Hi Mini, 

Thank you for your update. 

We have checked the conversion with provided details, the footer has clipped within bound height. We have modified the bounds into (0, 35) , then draw a footer properly inside the pdf page. Please try the conversion with below solution and let us know the result. 

//Draw the composite field in footer 
compositeField.Draw(footer.Graphics, new PointF(0, 35)); 

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

If I write
//Draw the composite field in footer 
compositeField.Draw(footer.Graphics, new PointF(0, 35)); 

It draw the footer with the margin set. I need to draw the footer outside the default margin.

Hi Mini, 

While adding footer to PDF document, it will draw only in inside of the PDF margin. So we cannot able to draw the footer in outside of the margin. Please refer the below KB for more details, 

Please let us know if you have any concerns on this.

Hi Mini, 

At present we do not have support to set no margin to header and footer and set right and left margin to rest of pages in PDF document. As we said earlier as a workaround only we can achieve your requirement using the sample provided by you in the previous update.  

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
