Subject AW: build dynamic tables with FOP
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2005 17:13:05 GMT

Bryant, thanks so much, but something still seems to be wrong, when i do so, the PDF gets
generated, but no table is build, and i found this exception in the logs: 

java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -2

Where is this exception thrown and why ?! The XSL:FO code is: 

<xsl:template match="table">
  <fo:table border="0.5pt solid black" table-layout="auto" width="100%" space-before.optimum="1pt"
   <xsl:param name="columnsCounter" select="/child::tr/attribute::maxCols"/>
   	<fo:table-column width="30" number-columns-repeated="{$columnsCounter}"/>
				<xsl:apply-templates select="tr"/> 			

Thanks, Kind regards

Hi, Jens,

That's one way to handle it. If you don't want to pass a parameter to your transformation
process, though, you can also have the XSLT count the number of columns in the source document
and generate the correct number of columns. I don't like having to examine a file and set
a parameter (whether I do it myself or with some other process), so I tend to make my XSLT
figure out such things.

build dynamic tables with FOP

i am trying to build dynamic tables using FOP 0.20.50 within a CMS. 
It seems to be a bit awkward building dynamic tables, cause i dont really 
know, how many columns this table is going to have. 
As i found out at the apache website, FOP does not support the 
table-layout='auto' attribute within the fo:table tag. 
Does this mean, that you would have to count the possible table-columns ? 
And how is this supposed to work ? 
Considering this XML, where the maxCols attribute shows you the number of 
columns, this table is supposed to have: 
  <tr maxCols="3"> ... 
and you are inside the fo:table element, could one do something like this: 

 <xsl:param name="columnsCounter" select="/child::tr/attribute::maxCols"/> 

  <fo:table-column width="30" 

or is there a better way to cope with this ?!? 
Anyhow, if i got quite a complex table, my Tomcat is tremendously busy .. 
Many thanks 4 your help + kind regards from Hamburg
