Master page changes without page breaks? [message #1763787] Fri, 19 May 2017 16:23 Go to next message

I have MasterPage A and MasterPage B.

My document has a number of elements which length is dynamic.
Is there any way with BIRT to have MasterPage A on page 1 and MasterPage B on the rest of the pages?

I cannot set the master page on any of the elements (on the Page Break tab) because then I get ugly page breaks depending on the elements length.

I cannot trick with one master page and different content that gets switched on/off with the visible setting since the page header height differs between master page A and B.

I tried in onCreate of the element's rows:
if (pageNumber>1) { 
   this.getStyle().masterPage = "MasterPage B";
}

but the pageNumber becomes wrong around that page break, as if it is not intended to be done that way.

Anyone, any ideas?

Did you ever figure this out? I'm running into the exact same need.

Thanks!

Not with BIRT. Master page settings and page breaks are synonymous.
I solved this by setting just place holders in the footer and header area and
inserted the elements with iText after the Birt PDF emitter did its work.
