Dynamic header / footer

Hi all,
I created an Adobe Form and defined on the MasterPage a header, a footer and a main area (content are) in-between. The areas were defined with a fixed size (somehow it was the only way because "fit height" and "fit width" was innactive).
Because the form is used in different countries the amount of information in the different areas is not the same. Therefore I am looking for a dynamic header and footer (and main area). That should help to optimise the space exploitation on a page. The header should grow from top of the page down, the footer bottom up and the main area fill the gap.
I know that this is a very sophisticated demand. Nevertheless, I hope that someone else had similar ideas and could solve that task.
I appreciate any help, hints and good advices which leads to a solution of my problem.
Thanks & regards,

Hi Andres,
thanks a lot for your quick answer!
In your MasterPage, add only the items that will remain static during the execution.
Every object that will behave in a dynamic manner should go in the BodyPage.
Very good hint, thanks!
What you can do is set a Subform with flowed Western Text between your Header/Footer
(Static) of your MasterPage. Within that main Subform set three more, "Western Text" as well.
One will be for your Dynamic Header, the middle one for your Main and the bottom one for your
Dynamic Footer.
I think I did not really get it! As far as I understand this works for one page...my form - when filled with data - can have more than one page!
Some questions came up when I read your solution:
1) why is the flowed content "western text" and not "top to bottom"?
2) what happens exactly with the area of the static header / footer? It's above the dynamic header and below dynamic footer -> is that space not wasted in the end?
3) The dynamic footer is directly below the main area - not necessarily at the bottom of the page!?
4)  How is the "pagination" defined for each of the three dynamic areas (header / main / footer)?
I hope you'll find the time to answer my question soon!
Thanks & regards,

  • Dynamic Header/Footer/Content in Portal

    Hi All
    i'm new to portal, i want that when user logs in according to user there should be Header , Footer and Content displayed dynamically. For example if User A is in department D then his department logo,footer along with contents related to his department should be displayed. Next problem is , layout of page for every department may be different. Is it possible in Oracle Portal environment or we will have to use Webcenter for this purpose.
    Thanks in advance

    You can check for the logged in user in Oracle UI Template level. Then according to logged in user you show his department logo's colors etc...But before the hand create logos and CSS.
    Once you are done with UI template logic then apply same to Portal template there you can decide the layout/regions of the page.
    After that create the Portal pages and apply Portal template to the page and place the portlets(either java , Oracle protelts ) in the page level and get the dynamic content according to logged in user .

  • Dynamic table header/footer on multiple pages stay original

    hi experts,
    i've got a form with a dynamic table. this means that i have a footerrow with mapped information if it should be visible or not. so the table can have from 1 to 40 columns.
    i did some scripting in the table's initialize section:
    loop over count of colums and set the headerrow, row1 and footerrow elements for index x to hidden.
    everything works out fine BUT if the data spans over multiple pages the headerrow on pages 2 to last is original again. means that the hiding of cells is not effective any more. same with footerrow (but here its fine at last page and original at  page 1 to last -1).
    i tried to hide cells again in layout:ready section for the other instances of the headerrow.
    cells got hidden, but the still visible cells didnt relocate to the left (if i hide it, there should be no space between staying cells).
    can anyone please give me a hint what i am missing here?
    does anyone have a simple sample for this task? its all about the header/footer for multiple pages!
    thanks a lot!

    When the footer goes to the 2nd page the page subform is incremented so you will have to reference the page subform as well. I suggest that you add a button (this is for a test only) to the footer subform and add the code app.alert(this.somExpression). Now render the form and make sure the footer stays on one page. Hit the button and take note of the someExpression. Now add enough rows to force the footer to a new page. Hit th ebutton again and take note of the changed somExpression. So to solve your problem you will have to find out which page your footer is on. and then construct your expression to incorporate this chane in expression. Note that the indexes are 0 based but the page numbering is 1 based.
    Hope that helps

  • Misaligned header/footer in iWeb 'blog

    Got designated to create my agency's website. While they wouldn't shell out the bucks for Adobe or anything similar, they did get an iMac with iWeb '09, so I've been using that. The header, footer, and navigation menu are consistent across the site with the exception of the main 'blog page and archive- the header and footer get pushed off the top and bottom margins of the page (they appear to be placed properly as the page is rendering; then when it's finished rendering, they're in the wrong spots). I've viewed it with Firefox 3.0.11 and Safari 4. Any ideas? The site is http://stephenssheriff.com ; the 'blog page is under "News". Thanks!

    Something to do with the dynamic content nature of the page?
    Possibly. Is the Inspector/Page/Page pane for the blog page the same as the other pages? If you go into one of the other pages and check or uncheck the lower checkbox you can see the content of the page shift slightly upward and downward. That's what made me think that pane was different for the blog page. That's the only item I can think of that would affect the page in the manner you're seeing.
    FWIW I had to put that page and another in separate windows to see the difference you were referring to. It's not obvious except to the designer who looks for those sorts of inconsistencies.

  • Dynamic Header help in PDF Portfolio

    Need some help please, to create and load a Dynamic Header when creating a PDF Portfolio in LiveCycle ES2.  Have input parameter of a [name] and an [image file] to place in the Header.  Process flowing out of Assembler (PDF Generator).  Currently other PDFs being inserted within the Portfolio, and Navigation parameter being received ok, and setting up custom navigation.  Any help w/ creating Dynamic Header is very much appreciated.

    By "Dynamic Header" do you mean the PDF cover page, or the interactive portfolio navigator?
    If its the cover page then it should be a fairly easy thing to do.  You can create a form (XDP or PDF template) with a field for the name and one for the image.  Then you would use something like LC Forms or Form Data Integration to merge the data (image and name) with the template.
    The one thing you would have to do is to put the image and data into an XML format before you merge it with the form. That means you will need to convert the image to a base64 encoded format.  Fortunately there is a built in function for doing the conversion in a SetValue operation (its under Document Object Functions).
    If you are talking about the Navigator (portfolio shell) then it gets a bit more tricky.  The navigator is actually a Flex application and not a PDF.  You'll have to code a new one using Flash Builder, then import the resulting .nav file into your LiveCycle application. Merging the data with it is not something I've done before, but it should be possible (the LiveCycle Interactive Statement Solution Accelerator does something similar).
    If it is new navigator you need, check out some of the following links:

  • Dynamic header in oo alv print_top_of_page based on current line

    I would expect this to be a common problem with the solution easily to google/find, but somehow...
    dynamic header generation during alv print_top_of_page:
    - i print an oo alv grid, sorted by kunnr
    - for each new kunnr a new page
    -> now I want during print-out to: at each top of page, read the first (or any) line of the current page, i.e. the current kunnr, and select data on basis of that kunnr to be written to the header.
    My problem is that sy-tabix is not being filled correctly (always 1).
    Strange thing is that in another report with a non-dynamic itab to display, sy-tabix is actuall being filled more or less correctly. (with the minor drawback that on the first page the tabix might not be 1 but more likely to be 2; but that's easy to fix and for the next pages sy-tabix is correct)
    Kind regards, A

    In the handle_print_top_of_page method, use :
    FIELD-SYMBOLS : <lv_line> TYPE ANY.
    ASSIGN ('(SAPLKKBL)G_INDEX') TO <lv_line>.
    if <lv_line> = 0. "First time, G_INDEX is equal to zero
       <lv_line> = 1.
    So in <lv_line> you will always have the good index of your table.

  • Report header/footer not getting displayed ondashboard

    We added deault header/footer to OBI reports as per the steps given in OBI Presentation services
    administrator guide (section 3: Administering Oracle BI Answers):
    By adding xml code as below under 'OracleBIData\web\msgdb\customMessages' folder
    <WebMessage name="kuiCriteriaDefaultViewElements" translate="no"><HTML>
    <view signature="compoundView" >
    <pageProps pageSize="a4">

    <displayFormat fontColor="#FF0000"/></zone>
    The 'Footer text' is coming in all new requests created, but when we add that request to a
    dashboard as embedded section, the footer is not displayed. Can anybody please provide some
    information that how we can get any customized text/link added in report footer to get displayed
    on the dashboard page.

    yes, whatever the headers/footers you have mentioned in report will not be shown in dashboard..
    But if you mention the report link - download (don't specify headers/footers for dashboard at this time), when you download that report you can see the headers/footers in that report..
    But when you use download option for whole dashboard, you can't see those h/f s unless you mention the h/f s for the dashboard...
    This is expected, because when user download the dashboard he shouldn't see the 2 h/f s.
    So, you need to mention the print pdf s in edit dashboard.
    Hope it's clear..

  • I have 5 html pages that share a common header, footer, and sidebar. how do i use my nav bar to change the content of the body without duplicating a lot of code?

    i have 5 html pages that share a common header, footer, and sidebar. how do i use my nav bar to change the content of the body without duplicating a lot of code? thank you!

    i inherited the website. It’s for a non-profit and is not very
    sophisticated, and neither am I in webdesign. It currently has multiple
    pages that are identical except for that body section, so whenever i change
    the navigation (in the sidebar) I have to update every html page.  I want
    to have one basic page, and just call in the different body content based
    on the link the user selects from the nav bar. How can i do that using a
    script? i am using Dreamweaver.

  • Why is my header/footer missing when I mail merge in Word 2013?

    I have just converted from Word 2007 to 2013 and now I am having an issue with my mail merge document. My mail merge document has our company letterhead set up in the header/footer. When I finish the mail merge by selecting 'Edit Individual Documents' using
    an Outlook contacts list - the first page is missing the header/footer but all the others are correct. 
    I use this document and mail merge every few days so this is going to cause me much grief if it can not be resolved.
    I have never experienced this issue before and I consider myself an advanced Word user.
    Has anyone else had this issue and knows how to fix it?

    According to your description, my understanding is that the first page of the Word document lost
    the header/footer, but the other page display well.
    If it is, please try the methods and check if it is helpful:
    Click on File>Options>Display and make sure that there is a tick mark in the box for "Show white space between pages in Print Layout view."
    Then, do you use DOC file (Create in Word 2007) or DOCX file?If
    you use Doc file, I recommend you convert it to DOCX file to test.
    If I misunderstand something, please let me know.

  • Why is my header & footer cut off by Dreamweaver?

    Greetings. I would highly appreciate any help in resolving this issue.
    I created a website using dreamweaver. Upon publishing it, I noticed that the header, footer, and sidebar have been cut off. I have an image in the header and footer, and only 1/4 of the image is showing on the website.
    Furthermore, the second part of the sidebar, starting with the black area is supposed to extend all the way down to the bottom of the page (right on top of the footer), yet only about 1/4 of that is showing as well.
    please  let me know what I can do to resolve this issue.

    In the header, you have your image as a background image.  A BG image does not change the height of the container, so the only thing that is giving your height is your use of
    which is not the correct way to go.
    Set a new rule in your .header for a min-height of however large your background image is, that is will solve the header/image issue.
    In the side nav, change the background color to your menu color, see if that solves your problem, if not a better option would be to use a faux column, you can read about them here.
    Your footer you have the image set to 25 px in height, and that appears to be what you are getting.

  • Acrobat 8.1.2 crashes when Document Header & Footer Add .. is invoked

    I'm running Acrobat 8.1.2 PPC on a PowerBook G4/1.67 Ghz running Leopard 10.5.4. I haven't used the page numbering function in quite a while, since before I upgraded to Leopard. Today I assembled a course packet of 150+ pages from 50 or so individual pdf documents. All was fine until I wanted to put a page number in the footer by invoking Document > Header & Footer > Add.... It either crashes Acrobat after putting a spinning system cursor (more frequently) or simply does nothing. I've tried "Examine" to remove things, but it doesn't help (and it removes bookmarks even when you tell it not to!). Running the PDF Optimizer on this document crashes Acrobat as well!
    Invoking Document > Header & Footer > Add.... on other documents does work. Let me stress that this composite document was created by Acrobat itself! The workaround I found was to open the document in Preview, do Print > Save as pdf, and *then* invoke Document > Header & Footer > Add....
    Has anyone else seen these problems? Are these remaining incompatibilities with Leopard? Advanced > Document Processing > Number Pages doesn't seem to add page numbers!

    I don't think it makes a difference. An Adobe engineer has confirmed that this doc has revealed a bug in both Acrobat Pro 8 and 9.

  • SSRS 2008 R2 - Dynamic header data stays the same when exporting

    I have a SSRS 2008 R2 report with a single Tablix.
    The data is grouped by InvoiceID, with each appearing on a separate page.
    I'm displaying some of the detail data in the group header row using Expressions similar to the following:
    ="Invoice # "  & ReportItems!InvoiceID.Value"
    The data referred to by my ReportItems statements are all hidden in the detail row (Advanced Mode, the Hidden Value for the Static Row Group is set to false).
    When I Preview the report in Visual Studio, everything looks as it should - the dynamic header data changes correctly with each group.
    However, whenever I export the results (I've tried all the formats), the header data is the same for every group - its taking the values from the first group and using it in all the groups.
    I've copied the same expressions into my Totals row, and the data is correct when exported; its only happening in my header rows.
    Any help in resolving this is greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Hi Alex,
    According to your description, you have a header with expression contains ReportItems. Now you find it shows incorrect result when exporting to a file. Right?
    In Reporting Services, it has reported some similar issue that the ReportItem returns unexpected result when exporting.  In this scenario, since you just want to show the group name in each page as a header for detail rows. So you can make the
    detail rows group on the Group. Then delete the Group column but still keep the group. After that add a row above detail row (Out side of group) and put in "=Fields!InvoiceID.Value". Now it will show the corresponding Group name
    when you set page break between each group instance. We have tested this case in our local environment. Here are screenshots for your reference:
    field expressions using ReportItem refrences have unexpected results when exporting
    If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
    Best Regards,
