public final class FlowPaginationStep
extends IterateVisualProcessStep

The flow-pagination is a pagination step, where the page-boundaries cannot be determined beforehand. It only works for infinite size pages and ignores all page-header and footers.

The page-break list is updated on the fly while the report is paginated. A new break will only be added if the old list did not contain the new break. It is guaranteed that only one break is added on every run.

If complex compound layouts are required, this pagination step must be followed by a classical pagination step so that boxes that overlap a break-position get shifted accordingly.
