Problem with visual force PDF page numbers or page page break

Hi there,


when i click a button it will generate the PDF, it is generating pdf,but the problem is I am getting one extra empty page.

content is only 2 page but I am getting one extra  empty page , how to avoid that extra empty page .


any an ideas  ?



Thank you,


Hi Arunadeveloper,

This depends on how you have constructed your page for this.

The most common reason is you have padding or margin on the final div in the page so the PDF throws in an extra page to fit all the content. Sometimes in can be a random <br/> at the end of your content there are loads of possible reasons.


I hope this helps, if not it may be worth posting your page code and any styles you use in it so I can take a better look.



ok, here is my code it is component

<td align="right">{!enrollmentEventDispacherName}</td>

<apex:pageBlockSection columns="1" >

<c:EnrollmentEventLocationSummaryComponent />





please let me know what is the mistake i am doing for page break , and one in table i need to wrap the content and when the content s is wrapped it should display bottom .


Hi, sorry for the delayed response it has been a busy week.

There is quite a lot of code there, so may not get chance to have a good look at it until tomorrow.

But one thing I noticed at a glance was you have a '</apex:form>' without ever opening a form, I am guessing this is a copy and paste issue as it would probably not compile with this in there.


I will get back to you as soon as I get chance to take a proper look at this.


Another thing to note is you use 'page-break-after:always;' in your component, this will force a page break after this div. So if your page is currently displaying an entry from the 'enrolmentEventLocationList' list then you will have a page break even if it only has one item.
