PDF::Writer and simpletable height

Pekka Paal
Posts: n/a

I was wondering if there's any way to track the height of a simpletable?
I mean the height of course increases if rows are split over two or more
rows, which means that I can't blindly check for amount of objects that
are inserted into the table.

So what I need is a way to check if the table will fit on the current
page, else move the whole table to the next page.

Thanks for any help on this.

There's no need to do that, but there's also no way to force a table
to be on a single page, just to prevent the table from splitting rows
across pages.
