How to add the custom text or image in header and footer using cloud api


#1

I am using node js api and i want to add the custom header and footer. for example in the header i want to add an image and some text and in the footer i want to add some text.

i can see only one cloud api (/words/#!/HeadersFooters/PutHeaderFooter) for header and footer. but its not working for me.

Can you please guide me how to add the text or image into header and footer using cloud api.

Thanks for your inquiry. To add text to the Header/Footer you need to use PutParagraph API and for image, you can use PutDrawingObject API. Hopefully it will help you to accomplish the task. Please let us know of any further assistance in this regard.

PutParagraph Nodejs Example
PutDrawingObject Nodejs Example

@tilal.ahmad But it will create the text/image in starting and end of the page.
Don’t we need to create the header and footer before using these api? If need then please provide me api for that.

Also if we want to move the text/image to particular position in the header then how can we move.

@arunkamboj

Yes, first you need to use the PutHeaderFooter API to add Header/Footer in your document and then above mentioned APIs to add Text/Image to child nodes of Header/Footer.

I am checking this requirement and will share the details with you soon.

Now i am able to add the paragraph using given api but the problem is that header text is not displaying by default. i have to enable the “Different first page” property from the “header & footer tools” after that it show me header on document.

I am using following api for create the header
words/#!/HeadersFooters/PutHeaderFooter

parameters

name : This is test document.docx
headerFooterType: “HeaderFirst”

also i think there is wrong information provided by you in document for the headerFooterType
https://docs.aspose.cloud/display/wordscloud/Add+Header+or+Footer+to+a+Document

when i used these value then it gives me error. (for example values for headerfooterType is FirstHeader, OddHeaders,EvenHeaders etc)

Also how can i add the image in the header bar, i have tried to use the putDrawing api in php but its not showing me image there.

$remoteName = “smiley_text_with_header.docx”;
$image = realpath(DIR . ‘/…’) . ‘/docs/footerlogo.png’;
$folder = null; // Input file exists at the root of the storage
$nodePath = “sections/0/headersfooters/0”;
$request = new Requests\PutDrawingObjectRequest($remoteName, “{“Left”: 0}”,$image, $folder,
null, null, null, null,
null, null, $nodePath);
$result = $this->wordsApi->putDrawingObject($request);

Please guide me for this

We are sorry for your inconvenience. We have updated the documentation for correct values.

DrawingObject parameter: { “RelativeHorizontalPosition”: “Page”, “Left”: 500, “RelativeVerticalPosition”: “Page”, “Top”: 10, “Width”: 50, “Height”: 50, “WrapType”: “None”}

Furthermore please check the details of DrawingObect resource properties for reference.

Can we add header and footer with single api or we need to send separate api for adding header and footer?

for example currently i send 2 api for adding the header and footer

public function addHeader($fileName) {
$remoteName = $fileName;
$folder = null; // Input file exists at the root of the storage
$headerType = “HeaderPrimary”;
$request = new Requests\PutHeaderFooterRequest($remoteName, $headerType, $folder,
null, null, null, null,
null, null, “”);
$result = $this->wordsApi->putHeaderFooter($request);
$this->addFooter($remoteName);
}

    public function addFooter($fileName)
    {
        $remoteName = $fileName;
        $folder = null; // Input file exists at the root of the storage
        $footerType = "FooterPrimary";
        $request = new Requests\PutHeaderFooterRequest($remoteName, $footerType, $folder,
        null, null, null, null,
        null, null, "");
         $result = $this->wordsApi->putHeaderFooter($request);
         $this->addHeaderText($remoteName);
    }

@arunkamboj,

Thanks for your inquiry. I am afraid you can not add Header and Footer with a single API call, you have to call API twice for adding a header and a footer in the document.
