I have a form with the following hierarchy
> Subform [With border]
> > Subform bound to datasource with repeating rows
I also have another subform, which I use as an Overflow Leader, if a Page break occurs
This works fine, except if there is a page break, on the new page this displays as:
> Over flow Header
i.e. the overflow header is inside the border, when I want it to be outside the border, so it looks like a header.
The client is pretty clear with the border - they ONLY want it around the entire set of rows for the Subform, not between each row item.
As I write this - I am thinking of a possible solution.
- Remove the border around the containing subform
- On the repeating row have some script that does:
- If this is the first row, add a border at the top
- If this is the last row, add a border at the bottom.
I'll see if I can get it working, and report back 🙂
OK - my idea "kind of" worked.
Here is the full solution:
So now the structure is:
> Header (with a border at the bottom)
> Subform (with only a border at the bottom
> > Subform bound to datasource with repeating rows, with border on Left and right
The overflow leader has a line at the base of the subform (a border did not work - it got "lost")
So now the "Table" has a border, and if it overflows, it looks like a new table on the next page. Great!
