I want to use header and footer of an existing pdf report (a pdf file) into the report that I am generating through my program.
Infragistics.Documents.Reports.Report has a load method, that takes in a filename. If I pass the pdf containing header and footer, it throws an exception.
Is there a way to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance.
The load method in the PDF engine is expecting an xml report to be loaded not a pdf.

Thanks for the answer. Could you provide a sample XML report / the document link that helps with the format of the XML the method expects?
Thank you for the update. You can use the Save Method of the report if you want to look at the format of the xml file.
