chorme-pdf what is best practice for header and footer on long reports and page breaks before totals

  • What i am trying to accomplish is

    • pdf header and footer on each page
    • first page of report with title section
    • followed by report body with the page break in the table
    • the bottom of the table have totals in the table footer. (its repeating on each page now :( )

    when I try to use the sample with the group I get the error below

    Error "pdfCreatePagesGroup" was called with an undefined parameter

    Error while executing templating engine. "pdfCreatePagesGroup" was called with undefined parameter. One parameter was expected.

    I have report header

            <div class="title ">
                <div class="img-container">
                <img src="{#asset luckii_logo.png @encoding=dataURI}" style="float:right;width:100px;height:100px;"> 
                        <h2>Daily Account Balance</h2>
                        <p>Report Date: {{now}}</p>                        
        {{{pdfCreatePagesGroup accounts}}}

    Followed by the body of report.

    <table class="table striped table-border compact">
                    <tr >
                        <th>Account Id</th>
                        <th>Account Name</th>
                        <th align="right" >Bonus Balance</th>
                        <th align="right" >Cash Balance</th>
                        <th align="right" >Account Balance</th>
                    {{#each Account}}
                        <td align="right">
                            $ {{numberFormat2 CurrentMinimumBalance}}
                        <td align="right">
                            $ {{numberFormat2 CashBalance}}
                        <td align="right">
                            $ {{numberFormat2 LastCalculatedBalance}}
                        <td align="right">
                            Bonus: ${{total1 Account}}
                        <td align="right">
                            Cash: ${{total2 Account}}
                        <td align="right">
                            Balance: ${{total3 Account}}
         <div style='page-break-before: always;'>

  • resolved the group by pdf.

    still have an issue of the pdf header and footer and totals on every page.

    the report does not main inside the group

            {{#each $pdf.pages}}
              {{#if 1}}
                <div style="page-break-before: always;"></div>
              <main class="main"> 
                <header class="header">             
                  {{#with (lookup ../$pdf.pages 1)}}
                <footer class="footer">
                    <span>Page {{getPageNumber 1}} of {{getTotalPages ../$pdf.pages}}</span>

  • Sorry about the learning curve

    Header and footer resolved

    Chrome pdf needed to have forced margin top, margin right, margin left, margin bottom.
