PageLabelsTest - Python

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).

# The sample 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). 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.)
