I need to add a footer on the MigraDoc. The following code adds footer to all the pages.

The page has a header which needs to appear on each page.

Document document = new Document();
 PdfDocumentRenderer pdfRenderer = new PdfDocumentRenderer(false);
 Section HeaderSection = document.AddSection();
 HeaderSection.PageSetup.DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = false;

 MigraDoc.DocumentObjectModel.Shapes.Image image = HeaderSection.Headers.Primary.AddImage("../images/logo.jpg");
 image.Height = new Unit(65);
 image.Width = new Unit(150);
 image.LockAspectRatio = false;
 image.RelativeVertical = RelativeVertical.Line;
 image.RelativeHorizontal = RelativeHorizontal.Margin;

 Paragraph ParaHead1 = HeaderSection.AddParagraph();
 Table table = HeaderSection.Footers.Primary.AddTable();
 table.Borders.Width = 0;

 Column column = table.AddColumn();
 column.Width =Unit.FromPoint(300);
 column.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
 Column column1 = table.AddColumn();
 column1.Width = Unit.FromPoint(200);
 column1.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
 Row row = table.AddRow();

 Cell cell = row.Cells[0];
 cell = row.Cells[1];
 Paragraph para1 = cell.AddParagraph();
 para1.AddFormattedText("Support Team");

I need the footer table to appear only on the last page.

The formatted text in the first para is dynamic so the text can flow to the next page and i don't want the footer on the first page just in case the text flows to the next page.

I don't want add to add the last paragraph as the table as the footer as that will cause the footer to appear just appear the text.

You cannot use the MigraDoc footers for a footer on the last page only.

To achieve this effect, you have to add the text to the main body - or draw the footer later using PDFsharp.

You can use a TextFrame to have the footer at a fixed location, but you must take care that the TextFrame will not overlap with other main body content.
