Hi all, I'm desperately trying to fix the page-number-citation justify alignment bug as we came across it late in development of our product and the release date is end of October! I'm new to Fop development and am kind of lost at the moment. Has anyone worked on this problem and have any pointers? Am I mailing the correct list (or is there a bugzilla type thing where people can discuss this problem in particular)?
My understanding so far: Fop reads in the fo source and creates an area tree from it. Whilst the area tree is being created, PageNumberCitationLayoutManager.getPageNumberCitationInlineArea(LayoutManager parentLM) is used to generate InlineAreas. In this method, if the page number is known, a TextArea is returned with the proper number, otherwise an UnresolvedPageNumber containing the string "MMM" is returned (UnresolvedPageNumber is a TextArea subclass). More processing happens, all layout adjustments are made (I think this happens in AbstractBreaker.doLayout()) Towards the end of creating the area tree, page-number-citations are resolved through AreaTreeHandler.tryIDResolution() Hence, the page numbers were "MMM" when all the layout was being done, but are later changed to the correct number without any further layout change. The problem seems to be that as the area tree is being created, a page is laid out after each one is created, when really, the layout should come at the end after all pages (and hence page-number-citation references) are known. Don't know how correct I am with this but any opinions / corrections / help would be very gratefully received. Thanks, Phil. -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/Page-Number-Citation-Alignment-tf2387523.html#a6655821 Sent from the FOP - Dev mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
