Hi,

I am trying to create an application print page. The content of the application is dynamic, for example you can add multiple addresses or personal details. So the page lengths are not static. I need to place a header with application number and footer with page number in page x of y format. How can I place the header and footer dynamically?

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Amit

Is this for a web app or a desktop app?

This is for a web application. I am using JSP pages with Struts framework in J2EE.

Well the printer already puts page X of Y on the page. Not sure why you need to repeat that.

To do it with html/css, it will only really work with browsers that support CSS3 which is not that many.

It normally is better to create a pdf file on the server and make it look pretty that way.

Hi
Thanks for reply,
Well a PDF file would have been a better choice, but we started with assumption of giving a simple html print only.
The page X Of Y can be resolved by setting [&p Of &P] in the print setup. But still we need to give a header which is a number generated in the code.

Any solution?
