Syntax :
To get the property:

Property Values:

  • auto : It is used to insert a page break after the element if necessary.
  • always : It is used to insert a page break after before the element.
  • avoid : It is used to avoid a page after before an element.
  • emptystring : Page break is not inserted after the element.
  • left : It is used to insert one or two page breaks after the element, so the next page is considered a left page.
