Word Headers Footers via HTML


#1

We’re trying to generate HTML --> word document with headers and footers.
How can we add/ edit the headers footers so they take the content & formatting from HTML

e.g. we would like to add the following in footer

<p style="text-align: left;">Footer Text, <strong>Postcode</strong> | <span style="color: #ff9900;">More Footer Text</span></p>
<p style="text-align: center;">&copy; copyright information</p>
<p style="text-align: right;"><span style="color: #0000ff;">Page | {pagenumber}</span></p>

Thanks

Hi

Please find attached the sample HTML file and word file.
Based on the solution you provide, we can have the content and header footers in the same HTML file or we can have them in seprate HTML files.

Thanks

Thanks for sharing additional information. Please note Aspose.Words mimics MS Word behavior, Aspose.Words does not honor html header/footer content. So we need to add header/footer separately in Word Document. Aspose.Words Cloud API supports to add Header/Footer in Word document and later you can add Text/Image in the Header/Footer. Please check following API for details.

Insert Header/Footer
Add Text
Add DrawingObjects

However, currently Aspose.Words Cloud API does not support to add HTML text in Header/Footer. We have logged a ticket WORDSCLOUD-711 for the requirement. We will notify you as soon as it is resolved.

Meanwhile you may consider to update text formatting.

Here is an example:
