How to start page numbers from second page in PDF?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: PDF

You can start the page numbers from second page by very simple steps using Essential PDF. Split the PDF document by using sections, add a section for the first page and add another section for the following pages. Then, draw the page number for the second section alone.

Step 1: Add a section for first page.

C#

//Adding new section for 1st page where the page number not to be added
PdfSection section1 = doc.Sections.Add();
PdfPage page = section1.Pages.Add();

Step 2: Add another section for the following pages from page 2.

C#

//Adding new section for other pages to add page number
PdfSection section2 = doc.Sections.Add();
//Adding 3 pages in section 2
for (int i = 2; i <= 4; i++)
{
//Adding a new page to PDF document
page = section2.Pages.Add();
}

Step 3: Draw the page number only to the second section.

C#

//Adding Footer only to second section
this.AddFooter(section2, "@Copyright 2007");

The following sample link is used to achieve the above requirement.
