Hi all ,


I want to print a dw but  - with out the header repeat itself in each page .

I went on the idea of getting the pagecount() of the dw , and maybe try  to minimize header.height by Describe

in run time just for the next pages ( I want the header for the first page only )

I didn't find any way to find out how many pages there are after  dw retrieved and nothing works.


It can be done ? Any ideas ?

use autosize height for the header to only show it on the first page.  you will have to code the header stuff to only have values if it is the first page.

Hi Mike

Thanks for your response

I put not visible in the header stuff if the page > 1 and checked the autosize height for the header , still , the header does not scaled for the next pages …. have code example ?

did you resize the header to 0? autosize does NOT shrink the header, it expands it. so if you have any height at all, then that is the minimum height.

yes , I did .

I have some nested dw in the header .. so , all I can do is to put an expression in the visible property:

if(page() > 1 ,0,1) .. nut it does not work well
