XSL-FO List Blocks in XML

  • XSL-FO offers a special concept for list-like structures.

XSL-FO List Blocks Type

  • Ordered Lists Each list item gets an order name, typically a serial number

  • Unordered Lists or Enumerations Each list item gets the same leading sign, typically an en-dash or a bold bullet or - like in this book - a square

  • Description Lists Each list item gets a description of its content.

The XSL-FO concept for lists consists of four specific elements

  • <fo:list-block> ( Contain the whole List)

  • <fo:list-item> ( Contain each item in the List Item)

  • <fo:list-item-label> (Contain the label for List Item)

  • <fo:list-item-body> (Contain the body of the List Item)

Within <fo:list-item-label> and <fo:list-item-body> are the normal block elements

An XSL-FO list example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<fo:list-block>

  <fo:list-item>

    <fo:list-item-label>

      <fo:block>*</fo:block>

    </fo:list-item-label>

    <fo:list-item-body>

      <fo:block>Welcome</fo:block>

    </fo:list-item-body>

  </fo:list-item>

   <fo:list-item>

    <fo:list-item-label>

      <fo:block>*</fo:block>

    </fo:list-item-label>

    <fo:list-item-body>

      <fo:block>C-sharp Corner</fo:block>

    </fo:list-item-body>

  </fo:list-item>

</fo:list-block>

The output from the code above would be something like this:

Welcome

C-sharp corner
