Header Tag

The Header tag adds header information such as page numbers, the current date, and the current time to the template.


You might always want the current date and time to appear on your invoices. If so, you can include this information in a Header tag.

The Header tag can be specified anywhere in the template file; however, it always appears at the very top of your document. Only one Header tag is applied to the document. If you have multiple Header tags in the file, only the last Header tag is used; all other Header tags are ignored.

If you include a Header tag in your template, then you must set TopMargin in setup.ini to a minimum of 20.

The Header tag has three sections (Left, Center, and Right) which are used to position the information in the header. The Left parameter aligns the text with the left margin, and the Right parameter right aligns the text with the right margin. The Center parameter centers the text in the header.

The text in the header is formatted in 10 point, Helvetica font. If Helvetica is not available on your system, the default font is used. You cannot customize text formatting of the Header tag. The Format tag does not affect the format of the header.
