Forge component by Miguel 'Kelter' Antunes

Hi community, 

Does anyone have a sample of a PDF generated with the forge component html2pdf convert with footer and header?


I'm having trouble replicating what was explained in this article and I can't find the demo sample that the article claims to have.

https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/How-to_Guides/Development/How_to_create_reports_using_HTML2PDF

I added the OML with what I was able to develop from what I interpreted from the article. The footer still doesn't work, but no error message appears, it keeps loading in a loop...

Please, can anyone help me?

Hi 

you can use Html2PdfConverter  to add header and footer to your PDF by include in the Generate PDF Action the property otherarg .you can add setting for print like choose your header HTML or footer HTML and other options like page size,

setting will be like

" --background -T 50mm -L 10 -R 10 -B 23mm   -O Portrait  --page-size A4  --header-spacing 0 --header-html youheaderHTML --footer-spacing 5 --footer-html yourfooterHTML "
