Printing a QWebView doesn't seem to honour page breaks?
I assume I'm doing something wrong here. I wrote a simplified version of what I'm trying to do; load an HTML page into a QWebView, have a:
@<p style="page-break-before:always;" />@
...which, as I understand it, should create proper page breaks.
This works as expected when using Chromium and Firefox, but from my little program I'm not having any luck:
QPrinter *printer = new QPrinter();
QPrintDialog printDialog(printer, ui->webView); printDialog.setWindowTitle("Printing Thing"); if( printDialog.exec() == QDialog::Accepted ) ui->webView->print(printer);
I've verified that the paragraph element is there, that the style includes the page-break-before: always attribute, and copying and pasting this into a file, loading in a browser, and printing, will properly insert page breaks.
However, in my application, they are entirely ignored. The paragraph break is inserted, but not a page break. It prints fine besides this.
I figure there's just an option that I need to enable? I'd rather not generate each page in a standalone QWebView if I can avoid it.
I would regard this a bug. Did you open an issue in the "public bugtracker":http://bugreports.qt-project.org already?
We've had the same issue since upgrading from 4.7.4 to 4.8.2...
FYI: Printing QWebView with QPrinter::PdfFormat using CSS styles "page-break-before:always;" and "page-break-after:always;".
