Hi everyone,
I'm lurking here around for the last few days, and thank you for the huge amount of really useful clarifications I've found so far!
But I have a problem I can't solve.
I need to make a PDF, with MigraDoc, with a quite "particular" format.
I've several sections (Cover, TOC, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and so on) and I need to have the first page of the section without any header/footer, but from page 2 until the end of the section, the header/footer should be present.
I've tried several combination of Section.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter / Section.Headers.FirstPage / Section.Headers.Primary with no luck :( :( :( :( .
Do you have any ideas on how can I have this behavior :roll: ?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best regards

This approach works when used properly.
We use it in our applications.

First of all, thanks for your reply!
There are some example, that I didn't found, that I can use as "source of ideas"?
What I'm doing at the moment is something like that (only for the footer at the moment):

Code:
actualSection.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = true;
BuildFirstFooter(actualSection.Footers.FirstPage);
BuildFooter(actualSection.Footers.Primary);


BuildFirstFooter, just an "empty footer":
Code:
private void BuildFirstFooter(HeaderFooter hr)
{
Paragraph paragraph = hr.AddParagraph();
paragraph.Format = new ParagraphFormat();
}


In the BuildFooter function, a build the "real" footer. A table with some elements and a top border.
I don't understand what I'm doing wrong here :| :| :| !

After a partial rewrite the problem "is gone".
Now is working properly.
Probably something wrong happened in the code...

Thanks a lot for the help!
