Remarks

This property applies when printing the document. This property does not apply to the br or hr elements.

If there are conflicts between this property and the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::pageBreakBefore value on the object previously displayed in the browser, the value that results in the largest number of page breaks is used.

Page breaks are not permitted inside positioned objects.

Examples

The following example uses the IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::pageBreakAfter property to start printing on a new page.

Setting IHTMLCSSStyleDeclaration::pageBreakAfter to always for the p element specifies that a page break occurs at the end of each paragraph.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/dhtml/refs/page-break-after.htm


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
   <style type="text/css">
      P {
         page-break-after: always;
      }
   </style>
</head>
<body>
   <p>Because page-break-after is set to always, there will be a page break after this first paragraph when you print this page.</p>
   <p>This second paragraph prints on the next page.</p>
</body>
</html>
