Adding to PAGE_NUMBER Variable

In JasperReports there is a PAGE_NUMBER variable. What is the syntax to add a specified number to this value?

I have tried $V{PAGE_NUMBER} + 1 but get a compile error.

What I really need:

"Page " + $V{PAGE_NUMBER} + myVariable + " of " + myVariable2 + $V{PAGE_NUMBER}

I'll move this to our "Other Open Source Projects" forum, where you might be able to get an answer.

PAGE_NUMBER is an Integer, so you need to:

I've never tried this with Java 1.5, so I'm not sure if the auto-boxing is transparent to Jasper or if Jasper does some sort of pre-processing and would throw an error anyway. But even if you're using Java 1.4 or 1.5, this should work.

I agree. Here's the link:
