The Page footer block is one of the blocks found in a report created with the report editor. The Page footer block is run at the end of each page.
The Page footer block contains the information that must be printed at the bottom of each page (counters and/or totals generated when creating the document or added thereafter, or the current page number in relation to the total number of pages for example).
Caution: The self-stretchability of controls is not managed in the "Page footer" block.
