Loop screen print overlap


Recommended Posts

I am encountering something I've never seen before.  I have a foreach loop where I print out an invoice, it's a loop because there are weekly recurring invoices and I am using the webpage to print them.  The issue is that once the loop repeats the screen output does not continue where the printout ends, it reprints over itself. 

 

I used "<div style='page-break-before:always;'>" at the end of the loop but that did nothing until I moved it up 1 </div> which screws up the top of the invoice.  I have also used "flush()" with no effect.

 

I originally wanted to use libreoffice writer but could not get any connection to work.  Any ideas on why this is happening?

</div>

<div style='page-break-before:always;'>

</div>


<?php flush();
}
?>
<!-- End Invoice Loop -->

Could be any number of things, none of which have to do with PHP.

 

What's the full markup? Are you applying any CSS rules that affect how elements are positioned?

The PHP code is irrelevant: it happens on the server and your problem is on the client.

 

What is the full HTML of an example invoice? If you don't want to include the CSS then fine, but when I can't reproduce the problem with just the HTML then I'm going to ask for it too.

Sorry, I forgot that I split it out.  Here is the CSS...

 

body {margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px;}
.container {
    position: absolute;
    margin-top: 100px;
    width: 100%;
}

#hdr {

}

.logo {
    \\background-color: red;
    height: 75px;
    position: absolute;
    left: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 100px;   
}

.gu {
    position: absolute;
    right: 0px;
    height: 75px;
    width: 300px;
    //background-color: #b0e0e6;
    text-align: right;
}

.bill_to {
    position: absolute;
    left: 0px;
    height: 125px;
    width: 300px;
    \\background-color: blue;
}

.invoice {
    position: absolute;
    right: 0px;
    height: 125px;
    width: 250px;
    \\background-color: blue;
}

.tbl_bill_to {
    font-size: 85%;
}
.tbl_invoice {
    font-size: 85%;
}
.tbl_invoice_h {
    text-align: right;
    color: #848484;}
.tbl_invoice_l {
     text-align: left;
}

.grays {color: #848484; font-size: 77%;}
hr { width:100%; height:3px; background: #848484; }

.inv_list {margin-top: 150px;}
.inv_list_1 {width: 50%;}
.inv_list_c {text-align: center;}
.inv_list_r {text-align: right;}

.tbl_inv_list {
    border-collapse: collapse;
    width: 100%;
}
.tbl_inv_list th {
    background-color: #0B2161;
    color: #848484;
}
.tbl_inv_list_hr {height: 3px; background-color: #848484;}

Still wanted the full HTML but at least I see the problem:

 

You're using a bunch of position:absolutes everywhere and that can easily mess everything up. Specifically, you've done it on the .container and aren't positioning those relative to a parent, which means they'll all observe the implied left:0 top:0 and move to the top of the document/page.

 

Looks like you want to use that to position the child elements? Do position:relative instead: it allows you to position children absolutely (relative to the container) while keeping the element in its original location.
