Hi All


I am a new user of Itext. Currently I am using Inetsoft StyleReports but we are getting performance issues so we decided to evaluate Itext. I have gone through the docs/api's but still I am a beginner.

In my application we have different reports generated based on user selection(The screen has about 5 checkboxes). Each checkbox generates a particular report and if a user selects multiple checkboxes, a combined report is generated.

Each report has its own header and footer which repeats on every page of that particular document. I have seen there is a PDFTemplate class which can be used to set a template, but my problem is if the user selects multiple checkboxes, then each report will have a different PDFTemplate. I am using a listner which attaches the PDFTemplate to a document in onStartPage() method. How can I attach multiple templates to a document.

One possible solution is to generate all pdf's separately and then combine them at the end, but it is not the best approach keeping performance in mind. What I am planning to do is to pass document object to different methods based on user's selection of checkboxes and generate the report. But I cant find a way to attach different templates.

It would be great if some one sends me an example

Thanks in Advance

Keep on changing the page event

HeaderFooterPageNumber marker2 = new HeaderFooterPageNumber(payload);
writer.setPageEvent(marker2);
