This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.


This ViewHelper may wrap any composition of other ViewHelpers. It tries its best to avoid a page break within its children elements. Note that this ViewHelper needs to render its children two times to determine whether a page break is needed or not. This has a negative impact on the performance as well as might create other undesired side effects.
