I have an issue rendering a pdf using visual force. It is a form with multiple rows and each row has multiple columns on it. There is a need to create borders around specific text around it. I am running into formatting issues and i would like to know if any body has created pdf forms in visual force with multiple rows having multiple columns and borders. Please see the issue.
- On the header, you would notice a line separating the logo and text which is not in the original design. I am panel grid which are individual tables for each row because each row has different column width. The image width and height is pushing the first column compared to the text column and so I am not able to create separate borders for each column. As a result , I had to use the border tag on the table to format it and it puts the column separator.
- Next to the last row there is a row which shows approved by and certified by with dates . In the original design, there is a border around the date column which is very hard to create in the visual force page. The reason is that that row has a lot of text which I had to pad with spaces to get the space and creating a border around the date is causing weird formatting issues.
