Header and Footer for the print preview window can be enabled by using the PageHeaderHeight and PageFooterHeight properties in the PrintSettings property of PrintingService class of WPF Diagram (SfDiagram). The Appearance of the footer and header text can be modified by using the PageHeaderTemplate and PageFooterTemplate properties.


  <DataTemplate x:Key="PrintHeaderTemplate">
    <TextBlock Text="PageHeader" FontSize="35" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="Bold" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
  <DataTemplate x:Key="PrintFooterTemplate">
    <TextBlock HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Foreground="Black" FontSize="12">
        <Binding Path="PageIndex" RelativeSource="{RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor,AncestorType={x:Type Printing:PrintPageControl}}" StringFormat="Page : {0}" />


public partial class MainWindow : Window
  public MainWindow()
    SfDiagram Diagram = new SfDiagram();
    Diagram.PrintingService.PrintSettings.PageHeaderHeight = 100;
    Diagram.PrintingService.PrintSettings.PageHeaderTemplate = App.Current.Resources["PrintHeaderTemplate"] as DataTemplate;
    Diagram.PrintingService.PrintSettings.PageFooterHeight = 100;
    Diagram.PrintingService.PrintSettings.PageFooterTemplate = App.Current.Resources["PrintFooterTemplate"] as DataTemplate;
