jsp and htnl table Design
Posted on 2004-08-18
I am currently writing a web application using jsp. The aim of the system is to price
items of work. I wont go too indepth as to what it does but I have jsp pages that
produce a sumary of prices and descriptions of each item of work(from database)
in html table format. As a requirement I need to be able to print this information from
Internet Explorer. I have been stuck on this for quite some time and i need some expert advise
as to how i would organise the dynamic content of my jsps to produce html tables that can be printed.
Eg.. if there are 400 items of works to be printed this will take perhaps 20 A4 printed pages, each row in the html table may be of different height, depending on the information regarding that item.
Is it possible that each page will contain the table heading;;
also is it possible to avoid table row entries being split horizontaly over 2 pages.
Thanks in Advance..
