Adding Page Numbers to the Footer Section

ALLText 4 supports the definition of Headers and Footers to be stored with the document. Headers and footers may be defined for the document as a whole, for even pages, for odd pages, or for the first page. To create a Header or footer set the appropriate HeaderFText or FooterFText property, Note that these are list properties.

Thus :

HeaderFText (0) - specifies a header for the document as a whole.
HeaderFText (1) - specifies a header for even pages.
HeaderFText (2) - specifies a header for odd pages.
HeaderFText (3) - specifies a header for the first page.

These properties actually hold the Formatted text string corresponding to the header or footer. If you read in an RTF file with headers or footers, the headers and footers will NOT be shown in ALLText, but will be interpreted and stored by the HeaderFText and FooterFText properties. You can if you wish then add this text to secondary ALLText boxes.

PageNumber Property

Description: Sets or Returns the current page number of the document. Page numbering begins at 0.


ALLText.PageNumber = n%
n% = ALLText.PageNumber

Remarks: If text is not formatted using the printer device context (ALLText.PrinterDc = False) , ALLText assumes that the contents of the control occupy a single page with length equal to MAX_LONG. In this case, the value of the PageNumber property is always equal to zero.

Setting this property repositions the caret to the specified page number.

PrinterDc Property

Description: Determines whether ALLText uses the Printer Device Context for formatting text on the screen. If this property is set to TRUE the hard copy output and the display will be the same (True WYSIWYG). If set to FALSE, ALLText uses the proper device context for the screen resulting in an enhanced on-screen presentation. (this may cause the on-screen word wrapping to be different from printed word wrapping.


ALLText.PrinterDC = Boolean
b% = ALLText.PrinterDC

Default: False

DataType: Boolean
