Printing multiple pages if dynamic text is too long for one page

I have a dynamic text field that is populated by XML. I have a simple print MC that loads the text into a dynamic text box and prints using the code below. It prints well, however sometimes there will be more than one pages worth of text drawn from the XML.

I can work out a way of printing  to multiple pages if the text is too long for one page. Right now it just cuts of the text that doesn't fit. Is there someway of checking how many lines there are and splitting the text up or someway of forcing multiple pages?
var pj = new PrintJob();
var success = pj.start();
if(success) {
	pj.addPage("_root.print_notes");
	pj.send();
}
delete pj;

Hello, I'm going to provide you with the logic i'd use.
you'll stick the text from the xml into a textfield off stage. the textfield autosizes.then get the size of the textfield. set the coordinates for the print job.
