I am working on a pdf report that contains topics and images (charts). The document is formatted this way:
NR. TOPIC TITLE FOR TOPIC 1
CHART IMAGE for topic 1 (from bytearray)
NR. TOPIC TITLE FOR TOPIC 2
CHART IMAGE for topic 2 ...
Let's assume that I add this information in a loop, and that the loop runs 10 times. I expect 10 topic titles all directly followed by the image.
However, if the page end is reached and a new image should be added, I notice that the image is moved to the next page and the next topic title is printed on the previous page.
So on paper we have:
page 1: topic 1 image topic 1 topic 2 image topic 2 topic 3 topic 4 page 2: image topic 3 image topic 4 topic 5 image topic 5
If you have a
PdfWriter instance (for instance
writer), you need to force iText to use strict image sequence like this:
Otherwise, iText will postpone adding images until there's sufficient space on the page to add the image.
