xsl-fo placeholder or table

xsl-fo placeholder or table

Is it possible in xsl-fo to have some kind of a placeholder/table at the bottom of every page for example always three lines from the bottom at the right side of the page??

Is it possible to increment the page-number programmatically? If that´s possible then I could use a header and a footer on my page instead of a placeholder.

RE: xsl-fo placeholder or table

You can set up page number (using fo:page-number) in the region-after of the reference page area. Check out an implementation in this article.

RE: xsl-fo placeholder or table

My problem is that I want to have the fo:page-number both in the region-before and the region-after.  

Page 1
region-before Page 1

region-after  Page 2

Page 2
region-before Page 3

region-after  Page 4

RE: xsl-fo placeholder or table

Is that the need? How come I did not see in the original post?

RE: xsl-fo placeholder or table

Is it possible to get the page-number incremented both in the region-before and in the region-after??  

Anyway I´ve found a way to come around this problem but the best solution would be to use a page-number in the region-before and the region-after section..

Best regards/
