PageLabelsTest - VB

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.)
