The block container size needs to be big enough to fit the contents. Any contents that don't fit in the height and width get cut off. Make the height 24mm. The border attribute needs all 3 components, "solid 1px black"
I'm not sure if "bottom" is implemented. You can calculate the top by using (region-before-height - block-container-height) I haven't gotten to the position elements in my testing.

Hi Chuck,

I tried like below your tipp but did do nothing.
It only shows the first "Test" on the top of the page.
Doesnt "bottom" refer to the distance between the bottom of the xsl-region
and the bottom of the block-container ?
Any ideas ?


                        <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">

<fo:block-container height="8mm" width="190mm" bottom="0mm" left="0mm"
text-align="center" position="absolute" border="solid 1px white">

                        <fo:block border="solid" >
                        <fo:block border="solid">Test2
                        <fo:block border="solid">Test3

Try this or something like it.

<fo:block-container height="8mm" width="190mm" top="0mm" left="0mm" text-align="center" position="absolute" border="solid 1px white">

Hello Jerome,

do you put the "position" attribute on a block-container or a block ?

In fact I would like to be able to put a block in the bottom of a static 
xsl-region-before so that it glues with the start of the xsl-region-body.

I thought of using a block-container with absolute-position="fixed"
bottom="0cm" and thus get my block at the bottom of the xsl-region-before

and fitting right above the beginning of the region-body.
The body contains a table whose header should be tight to the bottom of a table 
in the region-before.

Someone has a solution for this with FOP ?

[INFO]: FOP 0.20.3
<fo:block-container absolute-position="fixed" top="240mm" left="100mm">

FOP web site indicates that this attribute (absolute-position) is not supported
(, but is the list up to date?)

However, the "position" attribute seams to be allowed (for value "fixed").
May be should you try it...

Hope this helps...
