Bands are identified by a colon (':') after the opening << characters.
Example for header bands:
This starts a group header or, if used outside of any group a document header text. In the latter case the following variations are possible:
HEADERF = header on first page only
HEADERO = header on odd pages
HEADERE = header on even pages
HEADER_OFF = this header is disabled.
Please note that bands are not implemented using opening and closing tokens ("i.e. <<..>>...<</...>>") so optionally the closing '/' character can be typed: <<:HEADER/>>
Example for footer bands:
This starts a group footer or, if used outside of any group a document footer text. In the latter case the following variations are possible:
FOOTERF = footer on first page only
FOOTERO = footer on odd pages
FOOTERE = footer on even pages
FOOTER_OFF = this footer is disabled.
Inside header and footer bands fields, images and text is possible. A header and footer band ends where either a different header or footer band starts or a data band:
Bands must be the first non white space (white space= space or tab characters) in a paragraph. All text after the band token will be ignored and can be used to write comments.
After the name, i.e. HEADERF You can specify an alias value: <<:HEADER "the alias">>
This Alias will be passed to the band event of WPSuperMerge component.
Hint: It is also possible to change the names. They are defined in unit WPRTEReport in this array variables:
WPHeaderNames: array[TWPMergeShowOptions] of string =
('HEADER', 'HEADERO', 'HEADERE', 'HEADERF', 'HEADERNF', 'HEADERONF', 'HEADER_OFF');
WPFooterNames: array[TWPMergeShowOptions] of string =
('FOOTER', 'FOOTERO', 'FOOTERE', 'FOOTERF', 'FOOTERNF', 'FOOTERONF', 'FOOTER_OFF');
WPDATANames: array[1..2] of string = ('DATA', 'TEXT');
You can access the alias name, i.e. "the alias" in band.Alias
