Overlapping Issue in Smartforms

Hi,

I want to print a text at the last page of the form as footer. So I created a window with condition 'Only After End of Main Window' and placed this window as an overlapping window on main window.

But the text in footer window is getting overlapped with the main window contain. I don't want this overlapping rather if there is any text in main window falls in footer window area, the form should trigger next page. How to acheive this?

    Hi,

    Even i faced the same situation in my last project, and i was able to resolve it, but dont remember exactly how.

    May be you can try to create footer in the next page or you check the other options of placing the footer like at the end of main window or the other radio buttons. or may be reducing the main window size.

    I regret, i could have helped you, if i had that system with me.

    You can check some standard "QM notification" forms or 8D forms.

    All the Best.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    you will have to count the number of line getting printed per page, this way you can know that on the last page if you have sufficient space(no. of lines) available to print the footer or not. You can check for thses conditions to suffice and get your footer printed on the last page or additional new page without overlapping.

      Hi, Counting the number of lines per page won't help as some times contents of the cell may get wrapped up in more than one line. Use table node to display your data and use table footer to diaplay your footer information.

    You could create another page, LAST_PAGE, and go to that when the main is done. Then have your window, and what ever other data displayed on that page. We have done that for disclaimer data. Note that this would create a page for your last window and it would never appear on a page with anything in the main, although you would need to have the main window there and you could use the main window for the output if you wanted. Good luck.

    That is not a correct approach. You need to develop another main window with a small height so that the footer is not ovrlapping the main window. Now this main window shall trigger only when the last page is reached. and the footer shall obviously print only after the end of main window without overlapping. Try this give your comments.
