Paul McCormickSubject: XLS:FO line break problem
Author: Paul McCormick
Date: 10 Sep 2007 11:31 PM
I have some text like that includes product identifiers. The product identifiers contain a white space. I want the text to wrap automatically but I don't want a line break to occur between a product identifier. I've tried using the keep-together and wrap options properties.

Here is an extract of the xls:fo that I does not work correctly.

<fo:table-cell>
<fo:block>Here are some product identifiers:
<fo:inline keep-together="always" wrap="no-wrap">
M 20/23
</fo:inline>
<fo:inline keep-together="always" wrap="no-wrap">
M 45/16
</fo:inline>
<fo:inline keep-together="always" wrap="no-wrap">
M 74/1611
</fo:inline> </fo:block> </fo:table-cell>

Hi Paul,
which XSL:FO renderer have you selected in the scenario dialog?

Thanks,
Alberto

I'm using Apache FOP, iText 2.0.2 in a Java 1.4.2 WebSphere 6 server.

Hi Paul,
the documentation for Apache FOP states that keep-together is only partially supported: see http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/compliance.html#fo-property-keep-together

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Thanks for the information. Do you know a java FO render that supports the keep-together attribute that you would recommend. It doesn't have to be open source.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,
you can try using the RenderX engine; just select it in the scenario dialog and verify if its support for keep-together is complete enough.

Hope this helps,
Alberto

I've over came the problem by replacing the spaces with &#160;

I then used the disable-output-escaping property on the fo:block.
e.g
<fo:table-cell>
<fo:block disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
M&#160;20/23 M&#160;45/16 M&#160;74/1611
</fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>
