NAME

PDF::FromHTML::Template::Container::PageDef

PURPOSE

To provide the page definition for a given page. Without a pagedef, nothing renders

NODE NAME

PAGEDEF

INHERITANCE

PDF::FromHTML::Template::Container

ATTRIBUTES

  • MARGINS / LEFT_MARGIN / RIGHT_MARGIN - This determines any space kept empty on the left and right margins. MARGINS is a shortcut for specifying both the left and right margins to the same value.

  • PAGE_HEIGHT / PAGE_WIDTH - the height and width of the paper you want this pagedef to render to. If both are not specified, the value in PAGESIZE will be used.

  • PAGESIZE - This is the paper size you want this pagedef to render to. Choices are: Letter, Legal, A0, A1, A2, A3, and A4. This attribute will only be used if PAGE_HEIGHT and PAGE_WIDTH are not set.

  • LANDSCAPE - The default orientation is portrait. If LANDSCAPE is set to a true value, then PAGE_HEIGHT and PAGE_WIDTH will be swapped.

  • NOPAGENUMBER - If this is set to a true value, then this pagedef will not increment the __PAGE__ parameter. Useful for title pages and the like.

USAGE

  <pagedef pagesize="Legal" landscape="1">
    ... Children will render to a Legal-sized paper in landscape orientation ...
  </pagedef>

NOTE

It is very possible, and often useful, to have more than one pagedef in a given template. Also, the PAGEDEF does not have to be the direct child of the PDFTEMPLATE node. It is sometimes useful to have something like:

  <pdftemplate>
    <loop name="PAGEDEFS">
      <pagedef
        pagesize="$PaperSize"
        landscape="$Orientation"
        nopagenumber="$TitlePage"
      >
        ... Children here ...
      </pagedef>
    </loop>
  </pdftemplate>
