Subject Re: build dynamic tables with FOP

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
