Different header on the first page of report [message #1016150] Tue, 05 March 2013 04:20 Go to next message

I need to have one header on the first page and another header on the next pages of report.
I am using 3.7.1 version.

1. I inserted a grid with two rows to the master page header.
2. I put one new grid into each of the rows.
First nested grid for the first page header, second nested grid for the next
pages header.
3. I set an onRender scripts:

//first nested grid
if( pageNumber > 1 ){
this.getStyle().display = "none";
}


//second nested grid
if( pageNumber == 1 ){
this.getStyle().display = "none";
}else{
this.getStyle().display = "block";
}


This works ok with the sample database, from JDBC Data Source.
But I need XML Data Source and with that it does not work at all.
It seems as if with the sample database table, the onRender event gets called on every page, but with my XML Data Source it only gets called once.

Please, If you could help me solve this mysterious problem I would appreciated it very much.

I think I responded to your question, on StackOverflow. There shouldn't be an issue with this and I wasn't able to recreate it. Can you attach a report design and XML file that will show me this issue? Also let me know the output format. Thanks.

Thank you for answering.
In your sample you are using BIRT version 4.2.1. I am using 3.7.1 and I am stucked to it.
Could it be a bug in 3.7.1 version?

The output format is PDF.

You need to set your page layout to "fixed", by selecting a blank spot in the report layout, going to the general section of the property editor, and changing it from auto layout to fixed layout. Then, change all of your tables to have a page break interval of 0 by selecting each table and changing the value in the property editor. Then, when you run to PDF, using frameset, your masterpage headers will behave properly. Hope this helps.
