Select Page

: If the table has a header or legend, this element is the top and required element of the table. (3) defines a row in a table. Here, too, various attributes are allowed, which have been omitted for the time being for reasons of simplification. table-omit-header-at-break is the repeat attribute of the header. The same goes for the foot area. As another example, the following XQuery selects all employees and renders them in a PDF table: Use a solid border on an appropriate fo:block. This will only work for horizontal and vertical lines. (3) The table has a color-coded header specified with the element and a footboard of the same color specified with the element. The background-color attribute expects a preset color value, such as red here, or a value of three RGB colors.

To write “This page is intentionally left blank” (or something similar) on an intentionally blank page, first define a conditional page master with a page root specific to blank pages. This allows you to specify static content for blank pages (by definition, a page is blank if no content from a feed is rendered on the page). Omit your normal headers and footers and use (for example) a header expanded to “. “Left blank” instruction: Once the XSL-FO document is generated, it is passed to an application called the FO processor. FO processors convert the XSL-FO document into something readable, printable, or both. The most common output of XSL-FO is a PDF or PostScript file, but some FO processors can output to other formats such as RTF files, or even just a window in the user`s GUI that displays the order of pages and their contents. We can convert the XML tree to XSL-FO using an XSLT script. This generic script only requires that the root of the XML table be named table with a heading attribute. Here is the heart of the XML-FO layout you need to create the table (without control over column width).

If your table is more complicated or if defining borders for individual cells becomes too laborious, use the code above and nest your table in the middle cell. To do this, we will convert our XML tables to XSL-FO. Unlike HTML, XML-FO allows you to create text streams and set rules about how objects cross page boundaries. (2) is the container for the contents of the table, which here has no footer or header area. The last page can be generated without specifying an explicit reference in the document to a specific anchor in the FO document. The definition of “last page” can be limited to a specific set of pages or to the entire document. This allows the user to specify something like “Page 2 of 15”, where page 15 is the page number of a final page definition. The XSL-FO tabular model is not much different from the HTML tabular model.

One way to center a table horizontally is to add a column on the left and a column on the right that fill the table so that the visible part is centered: Endline of table. The default value is false, which means that The given cell does not end a table row. With a different value of true, the given cell ends the table row. This only applies if the cells are not in . To center an image, table, or other element vertically, use display-align=”center”. For implementation status, see display-align compliance. Here`s a small, stand-alone document that centers an image on a page: The object is used to format the tabular of a table. creates the table header area, which is automatically repeated when a page break occurs.

The XSLT transformation step is exceptionally powerful. It allows the automatic generation of a table of contents, linked references, index and various other possibilities. The element contains optional elements , an optional element an element and an optional element optional.
