Subject Re: Regarding fo:leader
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2002 13:00:55 GMT
Hi Ian,
I do have only a two-cell table, with the first cell to carry the heading
with the leader dots and the second cell with the page number. My code is as
follows. But still i'm not getting the leader dots as required
<fo:table space-before.optimum="18pt">
<fo:table-column column-width="6.5in" />
<fo:table-column column-width="0.4in"/>
<fo:table-body font-family="sans-serif">
<fo:table-row font-weight="normal" font-size="9pt" line-height="12pt"
                 space-before.optimum="3pt" space-after.optimum="3pt">
     <fo:table-cell>
       <fo:block text-align="start"
                 start-indent="{1.3+count(ancestor-or-self::chapter)*0.2}in"
                 keep-together.within-line="always">
             <fo:basic-link internal-destination="{generate-id(.)}" >
              <!-- Will call someother template to generate the
page-numbers -->
             </fo:basic-link>
             <fo:leader text-align="justify"
                   leader-pattern="dots"
                   leader-pattern-width="5pt"
                   leader-alignment="reference-area"
                   leader-length.maximum="10cm"/>
       </fo:block>
      </fo:table-cell>
</fo:table-row>
</fo:table-body>
</fo:table>


I get an output as follows

          HEADER--------------- --------------          1
             Chapter1----------------                             2
                 Section1-----------                                  3
                 Section2-----------                                  4

I'm still not able to solve this problem.
Please reply with an appropriate solution

Regds,

Meena,
The length and position of the leader before the page number depends on
several factors.  My XSL builds my TOC as a two-cell table, with the
following style of row for each entry.  The first cell creates the text
with a following leader up to the start of the second cell that has the
page number.  If you put both in the same cell (or outside a table), I
think that the leader woul go right up to the page number.  Also, you can
change the leader pattern and alignment if it better suits your needs.

<fo:table-row line-height="12pt">
<fo:table-cell>
<fo:block font-weight="bold" start-indent="0pt">
<fo:basic-link color="black" internal-destination="cxbkpcon.xml">ActiveX to
EJB bridge concept articles</fo:basic-link>
<fo:leader text-align="justify" color="black" leader-pattern="dots"/>
</fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>
<fo:table-cell>
<fo:block text-align="end">
<fo:page-number-citation ref-id="cxbkpcon.xml"/>
</fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>
</fo:table-row>

Ian
