version is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<report xmlns="" version="3.2.17" id="1">
<property name="createdBy">Eclipse BIRT Designer Version 2.3.2.r232_v20090521 Build &lt;2.3.2.v20090601-0700></property>

is there a way to reset the pageBreakInterval property for a table when the report is rendered in pdf?

I have the following in my beforeFactory:

if ( reportContext.getOutputFormat() == "pdf" ) { 
    // Give each table in the report a name, and add the names to the list below, e.g. ["mainTable", "childTable1"] 
    var tableListing = ["mainTable"]; 
    for each(var tableName in tableListing) { 
        var table = reportContext.getReportRunnable().designHandle.getDesignHandle().findElement(tableName) 
        if (table != null) { 
            table.setProperty("pageBreakInterval", 0); 

but it only appears to work when rendering directly to pdf (run|view report|as pdf)

I want it to also work for printing to pdf from the web browser (run|view report|in web browser ... report renders... click Print Report | select PDF: Auto)

Printing as pdf from web browser results in the pageBreakIntervals breaking the table when there's still space left on the page

Any tips?

The problem with this approach is the pagebreak interval is used at generation time and when you view in the web viewer and then print it is only re-rendering the already created rptdocument.
