Hi,
I would like to insert a page brake in a HTML page using CCS (printing purpose).
I read that is possible to do it using page-brake-after...

Here is my case:
I have several input fields in a form

<form id="printer" name="printer" method="post" action="">
<input name="field__1" type="text" id="field" size="90" value="VALUE 1" </input>
<input name="field__2" type="text" id="field" size="90" value="VALUE 2" </input>
<input name="field__3" type="text" id="field" size="90" value="VALUE 3" </input>
<input name="field__4" type="text" id="field" size="90" value="VALUE 4" </input>
 .....

Is it possible to insert a page brake after "VALUE 3" (field__3)?

I am not positive, and I do not have a printer around to test this out, but you may be able to if you add page-break-after as an inline style to the <input/> tag. Make sure that it is well-formatted; right now, it looks like your <input> tag is floating around without a closing >

You can try to run something like this on window.onload:

function insertPageBreaks() {
    var inputTags = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
    for (var i = 0; i < inputTags.length; i++) {
        if (inputTags[i].value == "VALUE 3") {
            inputTags[i].style.pageBreakAfter = "always";
        }
    }
}

or something similar.

I tried that JS code. I think we are close because the loop is working ok. However inputTags[i].style.pageBreakAfter = "always" is not working. Do you know other syntax that could work?
Thank you for your help.
