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.
