Licensed Use :: Enhanced formatting

This example demonstrates the header and footer capabilities provided with an enhanced formatting license (included in a ScriptX Services license but an option with the Add-on). These are significantly more rich and customizable than those provided with the browser.

 

The enhanced formatting options are set using the printing.enhancedFormatting object. For example, this sample is formatted like this:

    var ef = MeadCo.ScriptX.Printing.enhancedFormatting; // save some typing
 
    ef.allPagesHeader = "<div style='border: 1pt solid red; font: bold 12pt Arial; 
        background: threedface; color: navy; padding-Top: 5px; padding-Bottom: 6px; 
        background-Image: url(http://www.meadroid.com/images/non_act_bg.jpg)'>
        <center> --- Header for page <b> &p </b>---</i>
            </center></div>";
    ef.allPagesFooter = "<div style='border: 1pt solid red; font: bold 12pt Arial; 
        background: threedface; color: navy; padding-Top: 5px; padding-Bottom: 6px; 
        background-Image: url(http://www.meadroid.com/images/non_act_bg.jpg)'>
        <center> --- Footer for page <b> &p </b> ---</i>
            </center></div>";
    ef.firstPageHeader = "<div style='border: 1pt solid red; font: bold 12pt Arial; 
        background: threedface; color: white; padding-Top: 5px; padding-Bottom: 6px; 
        background-Image: url(http://www.meadroid.com/images/act_bg.jpg)'>
        <center> --- Header for page <b> &p </b>--- </center>
            </div>";
    ef.firstPageFooter = "<div style='border: 1pt solid red; font: bold 12pt Arial; 
        background: threedface; color: white; padding-Top: 5px; padding-Bottom: 6px; 
        background-Image: url(http://www.meadroid.com/images/act_bg.jpg)'>
        <center> --- Footer for page <b> &p </b>--- </center>
            </div>";
    ef.extraFirstPageFooter = "<div style='color:red; font:bold 6pt Arial'>
        <img src='http://www.meadroid.com/support/sx_stat.gif'>  
        EXTRA FIRST PAGE FOOTER AS IMAGE<br> </div>";

Multiline HTML header and footer

HTML headers and footers are described by setting printing.enhancedFormatting properties in script. The following properties are supported:

Property Description
allPagesHeader A string value of the (html) header to apply to all pages.
allPagesFooter A string value of the (html) footer to apply to all pages.
irstPageHeader A string value of the (html) header to apply to the first page only, this value will override any allPagesHeader value on the first page (only).
firstPageFooter A string value of the (html) footer to apply to the first page only, this value will override any allPagesFooter value on the first page (only).
extraFirstPageFooter A string value of an additional (html) footer to apply to the first page only, this footer will be in addition to any footer already specified and positioned above the footer.
allHeaderHeight The height, in points, of the all pages header.
allFooterHeight The height, in points, of the all pages footer.
firstHeaderHeight The height, in points, of the header for the first page only.
firstFooterHeight The height, in points, of the footer for the first page only.
extraFirstFooterHeight The height, in points, of any extra footer that is applied to the first page only.

A header such as this:

--- Header for page 3 ---

is scripted by setting either the firstPageHeader or allPagesHeader property, for example:

MeadCo.ScriptX.Printing.enhancedFormatting.allPagesHeader = 
    "<div style="border: 1pt solid red; font: bold 12pt Arial;
    background: threedface; color: navy; padding-Top: 5px; padding-Bottom: 6px;
    background-Image: url(http://www.meadroid.com/images/non_act_bg.jpg)">
    <center><i>--- Header for page <b> &p </b> ---</i>
        </center></div>"

applies the given header to all pages. See the following section for discussion of firstPageHeader.

To print specific information as part of the header or footer, include the following meta-characters as part of the text:

Use this To print this
&w   Window title
&u   Page address (URL)
&d   Date in short format (as specified by Regional Settings in Control Panel)
&D   Date in long format (as specified by Regional Settings in Control Panel)
&t   Time in the format specified by Regional Settings in Control Panel
&T   Time in 24-hour format
&p   Current page number
&P   Total number of pages
&&   A single ampersand (&)

Different header and footer for the first page

Enable different headers and footers for the first page by providing values for the header and/or footer to be used on the first page; firstPageHeader and/or firstPageFooter

Additional footer for the first page

An additional footer for the first page only can also be provided. This is how the footer image on the first previewed/printed page of this example is defined:

MeadCo.ScriptX.Printing.enhancedFormatting.extraFirstPageFooter =
    "<div><img src='http://www.meadroid.com/support/sx_stat.gif'></div>"

The height of headers and footers

Required heights can be set by defining various properties

var ef = MeadCo.ScriptX.Printing.enhancedFormatting;
ef.firstHeaderHeight = 180;
ef.firstFooterHeight = 180;
ef.extraFirstFooterHeight = 60;
ef.allHeaderHeight = 120;
ef.allFooterHeight = 120;

All of these values will be calculated automatically if you don't set their properties.
