ken riderSubject: FO:BLOCK-CONTAINER
Author: ken rider
Date: 31 Aug 2005 05:01 PM
I am writing a stylesheet to produce an FO for conversion to PDF.
I need to place some text in a particular place on a page (absolute position). The only method that I can find is FO:Block-container.
However, when I try to use the method in the code window it is not available. I have declared V2 of the XSL transform.

What else do I need to do to have the method available, or is there another way to achieve this with FO:Block?

fo:block-conatiner is missing from the Stylys Studio language definiton most likle because Apache FOP doesn't support it.


You can edit the following file to add the definition for syntax coloring and auto-complete

"c:\Program Files\Stylus Studio 6 XML Enterprise Edition\bin\Plugins\Configuration Files\languages.xml"

The following should work with FOP

<fo:block-container position='absolute' top='0.01in' left='5in' height='3in' width='2.5in'>
<fo:block left="10 in" top="1 in">My Text</fo:block>

Hoep this helps
