//Instantiate Latex Load option object
LatexLoadOptions Latexoptions = new LatexLoadOptions();
//Create Document object
com.aspose.pdf.Document doc = new com.aspose.pdf.Document("samplefile.tex", Latexoptions);
//Save the output in PDF file

Add Break Text for Table Broken in Two Pages

Sometimes it is required to show some text at the bottom of the page to inform users for table broken in two pages. We have included BreakText property in Table class for this purpose in this version.

String outFile = "Table.pdf";
com.aspose.pdf.Document doc = new com.aspose.pdf.Document();
Page page = doc.getPages().add();
com.aspose.pdf.Table tab = new com.aspose.pdf.Table();
tab.setDefaultCellBorder(new com.aspose.pdf.BorderInfo(com.aspose.pdf.BorderSide.All, 0.1f));

for (int i = 1; i <= 200; i++)

{ com.aspose.pdf.Row row1 = tab.getRows().add(); row1.getCells().add("row - " + i); }
tab.setBreakText(new TextFragment("To be continued on next page"));
