Command/setupheadertexts

From ConTeXt wiki

\setupheadertexts

Syntax

\setupheadertexts[...][...][...][...]
[...] text on the left handed side of odd pages
[...] text on the right handed side of odd pages
[...] text on the right handed side of even pages
[...] text on the left handed side of even pages

or

\setupheadertexts[...]
[...] text in the middle of the header

Note that these can be combined, so if you want a header with text on the left, middle, and right of the page you can use:

\setupheadertexts[middle text]
\setupheadertexts[on the left][on the right]

There are predefined keywords for popular values, like chapter and pagenumber,

eg:

\setupheadertexts[chapter]
\setupheadertexts[][pagenumber][pagenumber][]

Description

Place headers and footers with the commands \setupheadertexts and \setupfootertexts.

These commands take 4 arguments. The first is for the left handed side on odd pages, the second for the right handed side on odd pages, the third for the right handed side on even pages, and the fourth for the left handed side on even pages.

Example

This example produces the same header on odd and even pages.

\setupheadertexts
        [{\getmarking[chapter]}]    [{page \pagenumber}]
        [{page \pagenumber}]        [{\getmarking[chapter]}]
\setuppagenumbering[location=]

Note: \setuppagenumbering[location=] supresses the default output (i.e. centered in header) of the page number on every page.

Multiline header

\startsetups[headertext]
  \startframed[frame=off,align=flushleft,width=fit]
    abc\\
    def\\
    ghi\\
    jkl
  \stopframed
\stopsetups

\setupheadertexts[\directsetup{headertext}]

\starttext
  aaa
\stoptext

(The result is not shown as headers - here, on Wiki - are trimmed out from the produced .pdf, so there is nothing to show.)
