At First i want to thank the migradoc/pdfsharp team for this awesome tool!

Now to my Problem,

I'm creating a kind of invoice pdf which is kind of complex because of the pagebreaks. It has a different Firstpage Footer and Header
and also a Table which fills multiple pages.
I Have multiple rows for each position on the table the best way to describe it, is with two foreach constructs:

Foreach(position)
#Name
#Description
Foreach(row in the position discription)
#Single row in the description
Endforeach
Endforeach

Each # stands for a row in my table.
I want to keep a whole position on one page so i use: "R1.KeepWith = R5.Index - R1.Index - 2;"
R1 is the first row of a position
R5 is the last row of a position

i hope this summs it a little bit up. The whole Table code is below:
Code:
Table Positionen = section.AddTable();
            // create the item table
            Positionen.Style = "table";
            Positionen.Format.Font.Name = "Arial";
            Positionen.Format.Font.Size = 7;
            Positionen.Borders.Visible = false;
            Positionen.Borders.Color = Colors.Black;
            Positionen.Borders.Width = 0.25;
            Positionen.Borders.Left.Width = 0.5;
            Positionen.Borders.Right.Width = 0.5;
            Positionen.Rows.LeftIndent = 0;
            Positionen.LeftPadding = "0.1cm";//linker rand in den boxen

            // Before you can add a row, you must define the columns
            Column column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("12mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
            column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("18mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
            column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("55mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
            column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("50mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Right;
            column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("15mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;
            column2 = Positionen.AddColumn("30mm");
            column2.Format.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Left;

            //Tableheader
            Positionen.AddRow();
            Positionen.Rows[0].Height = "0.75cm";
            Positionen.Rows[0].VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
            //Positionen.Rows[0].Format.Font.Size = 8;
            Positionen.Rows[0].Format.Font.Bold = true;
            Positionen.Rows[0].Cells[0].AddParagraph("Item");
            Positionen.Rows[0].Cells[1].AddParagraph("Quantity");
            Positionen.Rows[0].Cells[2].AddParagraph("Description");

                    R1.KeepWith = R5.Index - R1.Index -2;
                }
            }

Sorry for this long post but i have no clue what could be wrong :/

Thanks in advance!

Hi!
Code:
R1.KeepWith = R5.Index - R1.Index -2;
Why "-2"?
You exclude R5 and the last R4 row from the KeepWith.

Use "-1" if R5 is just a filler or "-0" to include R5 in the KeepWith block.

Hi,

at first, thanks for the help, i use -2 to make sure that there is no overlapping in my code, but it doesn't matter.
You are right if i want to make it work the right way it should be: 'R5.Index - R1.Index'.

Any Ideas why it doenst work properly? there can be a pagebreak every line no matter to which value i set the keepwith.
My only thought is it is because of "pakeha_by" version, i need that because the normal migradoc can't handle well
tables with large numbers of rows.

Try the "official" version and if KeepWith works (and AFAIK it does work), then the problem is with the "pakeha_by" version.

yes, that seems to be the problem, unfortunately i need the pakeha_by version because otherwise the rendering
takes too long (2-3 minutes). But i am working on a solution which counts how many rows fit on a single page and adds
a "breakrow" which has a given height.


thanks for the help!

Hi Senser

I've just noticed you've got the problem with my patch. I can have a look in nearest days if you still need help with it.

In case somebody needs KeepWith property to work I've updated patched assemblies: http://www.pakeha_by.my-webs.org/MigraDocFastTableRender.html
