Can this be added to my RTB editor? I want to add Insert Header/footer like in MS Word can it be done?

Wrote an editor program yesterday following a great tutorial ..... anyway, I am using RTB control and I would like to add insert Header/footer like what you see in Microsoft Word ...

Can anyone share where I might find a tutorial on how to do this or have an example you can point me to .. or can it even be done in an RichTextBox control?

I think it would be a nice feature for my editor .....

I would go to http://www.componentsource.com 

You can narrow the search to .NET > Text Word Processing controls


Currently, I'm downloading Syncfusion Essential DocIO - .NET Component - V4.4.0.51 for evaluation. ($485.10 for 1 developer).

There's another one called TX Text Control Professional Edition v13
But, it's about $1400 for 1 developer. I'm sure it's more powerful, but I can't afford it.

Here are the links to some I've found:

I ran into the same problem some months back. Microsoft's Richtextbox does NOT support footers and headers. So, what I ended up doing was breaking it up a bit. The main RTB on the user screen contains the body of the letter(all pages). Then, when they wanted to edit the header or the footer, I would pop up another form with 2 Richtextboxes; 1 for the header and another for the footer.

Then, when they wanted to see what the document looked like (print preview), I would add the margins, and add the header and footer to each page.

If you have time, you can roll your own, but it would be a complex project of it's own. You might instead consider buying a 3rd party control that already does this. It will be much, much cheaper than paying a developer a month or two (or more) of wages to write one, not to mention testing, debugging, and maintaining it.

hmmm How disapointing :(  I was hoping this wouldn't be such a pain ...  but I uderstand limitations are limitations and nothing can be done about that ...

Ok, well then, could anyone reccomend a third party control that will get the job done but wont break the bank?
