fpdf page break issue

I have this loop that prints 6 rows (multicell) for about 30 times. The issue is that when it reaches the bottom page it prints 2 or 3 rows from the multicell and on the next page it prints the other 3 rows. I want to make it print all 6 rows on the next page if there is not enough space for all 6 rows on the present page. I use this code:

$height_of_cell = 60; mm
$page_height = 279.4; // mm (portrait letter)
$bottom_margin = 20; // mm
$space_left = $page_height - $p->GetY(); // space left on page
$space_left -= $bottom_margin; // less the bottom margin
if ( $height_of_cell >= $space_left) {
$p->AddPage(); // page break
$p->Cell(100,5,'','B',2); // this creates a blank row for formatting reasons

but it doesn't work. Any solutions? Thanks!


Use GetY to get the current position, subtract it from the height of your document. If that is less than 6x (you have 6 rows) your multicell height, then force a page break by using AddPage.

I know you fixed this, but for the benefit of anyone else, this should give a broad idea.

$p = new FPDF();
$height_of_cell = 60; // mm
$page_height = 286.93; // mm (portrait letter)
$bottom_margin = 0; // mm
  for($i=0;$i<=100;$i++) :
    $space_left=$page_height-($p->GetY()+$bottom_margin); // space left on page
      if ($i/6==floor($i/6) && $height_of_cell > $space_left) {
        $p->AddPage(); // page break
    $p->Cell(100,10,'This is a text line - Group '.$block,'B',2);
