How to add different header and footer in different pages of a PDF Document

It is possible to add different Header and Footer in different pages of a PDF document. To achieve this, multiple sections has to be created using the PdfSection class and the header and footer can be added separately in each section.

The code snippets given below explains how to create multiple sections in a PDF document and add header and footers to it.


            //Creating section1 and adding pages to them
            PdfSection section1 = doc.Sections.Add();
            //Creating section2 and adding pages to them
            PdfSection section2 = doc.Sections.Add();
            //Including header and footer to the 1st section
            section1.Template.Top = AddHeader(doc, "Header 1");
            section1.Template.Bottom = AddFooter(doc, "Footer 1");
            //Including header and footer to the 2nd section
            section2.Template.Top = AddHeader(doc, "Header 2");
            section2.Template.Bottom = AddFooter(doc, "Footer 2");


Please find the working sample in the below link location.

This workaround does not work if the content of the document spans several pages (i.e. a PDFGrid that is several pages long).
