I'm looking to change the way the footer line looks for fancyhdr to something like this :

\usepackage{xcolor}

\newcommand\shadowfill{%
\leavevmode\leaders\hbox{\ooalign{%
              \vrule height 4pt depth 0pt width 1pt\cr%
\textcolor{gray}{\vrule height 1pt depth 1pt width 1pt}}%
}\hskip\fill\kern0pt%
}

I've tried

\renewcommand{\footrule}{\shadowfill}

but I end up with no line at all.

Not sure if I'm going about this the right way.

Edit:

Currently it looks like this

but I would like the solid line to be replaced with this line

  • The \footrule should add vertical material, not start a paragraph. Can you add an approximate representation of how your footrule should appear? – egreg Oct 3 '18 at 16:02
