Replace Variables in Header and Footer?

I would like to replace placeholders also in headers and footers, i don't want to create these sections, but just use the variableReplace method.
But i could not find any example on how to use variableReplace for headers and footers.

Any code samples available?

Hey,
you can do something like this:

Code: Select all
for (SectionWrapper section : wordMLPackage.getDocumentModel().getSections() {
  if (section.getHeaderFooterPolicy() != null) {
    section.getHeaderFooterPolicy().getDefaultHeader().variableReplace(yourContent);
    section.getHeaderFooterPolicy().getDefaultFooter().variableReplace(yourContent);
  }
}


I recommend doing a null check on the default header and footer object, and an isEmpty check on the content of these (!section.getHeaderFooterPolicy().getDefaultHeader().getContent().isEmpty()).
