I am creating a pdf file using itextsharp. I want to add footer for each page in the pdf document Which Display Footer Page Number Like "Page 1 of 3". Can anyone tell me how can I do this?

1 solution

Have a look at the following blog: How to add header and footer on pdf file using iTextSharp 5.1[^]

It says:
1. Create a class that in inherited by PdfPageEventHelper
2. Create table in this class and write footer content.
public partial class Footer : PdfPageEventHelper
public override void OnEndPage(PdfWriter writer, Document doc)
Paragraph footer= new Paragraph("THANK YOU", FontFactory.GetFont(FontFactory.TIMES, 10, iTextSharp.text.Font.NORMAL));
footer.Alignment = Element.ALIGN_RIGHT;
PdfPTable footerTbl = new PdfPTable(1);
footerTbl.TotalWidth = 300;
footerTbl.HorizontalAlignment = Element.ALIGN_CENTER;
PdfPCell cell = new PdfPCell(footer);
cell.Border = 0;
cell.PaddingLeft = 10;
footerTbl.WriteSelectedRows(0, -1, 415, 30, writer.DirectContent);

3. After this
Document document = new Document(PageSize.A4, 50, 50, 25, 25);
var output = new FileStream(Server.MapPath("Demo.pdf"), FileMode.Create);
PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, output);
// Open the Document for writing
//using footer class
writer.PageEvent = new Footer();.
Paragraph welcomeParagraph = new Paragraph("Hello, World!");

Thank you. Your sharing helped me a lot. To replace "ThankYou" with the page number, I just had to replace "ThankYou" with "writer.PageNumber.ToString()" in the OnEndPage event
