Creating Common Page Elements for Reports
Common page elements can be created for printing HTML reports. For example, displaying the report title and company copyright on every page of a report.
This is achieved through the use of the <thead> and <tfoot> HTML table tags and CSS. For example:
In the report recipe’s CSS file:
thead {display: table-header-group}
tfoot {display: table-footer-group}
<thead> and <tfoot> tags must be placed before the <tbody> tag
All of the default HTML report recipes installed with the Windchill RV&S server contain this.
thead { display: table-header-group; }
tfoot { display: table-footer-group; }
In the report recipe file:
<thead><tr><td colspan="&#fields">&reporttitle</td></tr></thead>
<tfoot><tr><td colspan="&#fields">&reportfooter</td></tr></tfoot>
<!-- Display item field values -->
