PageLabelsTest - C# (.NET Core)

This example illustrates how to work with PDF page labels. PDF page labels can be used to describe a page. This is used to allow for non-sequential page numbering or the addition of arbitrary labels for a page (such as the inclusion of Roman numerals at the beginning of a book).

// allow for non-sequential page numbering or the addition of arbitrary 
// labels for a page (such as the inclusion of Roman numerals at the 
// beginning of a book). PDFNet PageLabel object can be used to specify 
// the numbering style to use (for example, upper- or lower-case Roman, 
// decimal, and so forth), the starting number for the first page,
// and an arbitrary prefix to be pre-appended to each number (for 
// example, "A-" to generate "A-1", "A-2", "A-3", and so forth.)
