Forcing Movement to Next Item within Data Band
You can instruct the engine to force movement to the next item within a data band using a
next tag. This feature is useful in label-print-like scenarios when you need to output data about a fixed number of items in a single table row like in the following example. Given that
Clients is a
DataTable instance having a field named “Name”, you can use the following template to output three client names per table row while outputting names of all clients in a single table.
|<<foreach [c in Clients]>><<[c.Name]>>||<<next>><<[c.Name]>>||<<next>><<[c.Name]>> <</foreach>>|
In this case, the engine produces a report as follows.
|A Company||B Ltd.||C & D|
|E Corp.||F & Partners||G & Co.|
|H Group||I & Sons||J Ent.|
