    Hi,

    Here's the situation.  I have a Telerik Report document.  In the Detail row, there are three columns, each with one field.

    The fields can grow, and do based on the data in the field; so there may be multiple lines on some of the fields. 

    If I just put borders around the fields, then the boxes are all different heights, depending on what is in the fields. 
    (like this sketch:)
    ---------------------------
    |         |           |         |  <-Record 1
    --------|           |         |
              |           |-------|
              ----------
    ---------------------------
    |         |           |         |  <-Record 2
    --------|           |         |
              ----------|         |
                           ---------

    I need for all three columns to be the same height boxes.

    When done, the page should basically be a grid of boxes with the details from each record filled into the fields:

    --------------------
    |        |       |      |   <- Record 1
    |        |       |      |
    --------------------
    |        |       |      |   <- Record 2
    ---------------------

    Hope I am making sense... Anyone have any ideas on how to accomplish this?

    Thanks!

    -Chuck

    This may work for you.

    Use a Panel and put your fields inside the panel, all of them on the same one.

    Now set the border of th Panel and that should work like you want!

    Hope it helps!

    Ricardo,

    That works great for the outside bounding box, but how can I get vertical Separator lines between the fields that are of a variable length?

    Thanks for your assistance on this!

    Hi Chuck,

    For now there is no way to achieve the desired result. We are planning to include a Table report item for the next version which will make this task possible. Please, review the Reporting Roadmap page for more information on the next version.

    I'd say just use vertical lines (from the shape tool) and adjust their height to the height of your box, so they are the same, all the time.

    Hope it works!

    Ricardo,

    Is there a way to adjust the line(from shape tool) height dynamically, based on the height of the panel?

    Regards,

    Yeah, let me show you an example:

    Your line is called endLine.

    All you do is use endLine.Size.Height or endLine.Size.Width to set it equal to the height or width of your box.

    So, to make the dynamic vertical lines, use something like this:

    endLine.Size.Height = yourBox.Size.Height;

    See how that works!

    Ricardo,

    I see how that may work, but where would I put the code [endLine.Size.Height = yourBox.Size.Height;] so that it will adjust this height on a record-by-record basis?

    Thanks!

    Just do it on the report's DataBinding or DataBound event. That way, every time a new item that expands the contents of the box is added, the line will expand.

    Hope this helps.

    Ricardo,

    Sorry to be such a pain... I think I'm pretty close, but when I add a call to the data binding event for one of the textboxes:

    this.textBox1.ItemDataBinding += new System.EventHandler(this.textBox1_ItemDataBinding);

    and the following code:

    private void textBox1_ItemDataBinding(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    {

    Line1.Size.Height = panel2.Size.Height;

    }

    I get :

    Compiler Error Message: CS1612: Cannot modify the return value of 'Telerik.Reporting.ReportItem.Size' because it is not a variable

    Which is pointing to the Line1.Size.Height

    * I'm attaching the report file below post...

    Any ideas?  -Chuck

    Don't attach the event to the textbox, but rather to the report, if you want to attach it to the details section of the report, it should also work that way.

    Ricardo,

    I can't find in the documentation the list of report events.

    Can you help me with the call for attaching to the report databind event?

    Thanks!

    Click the square at the top left of the reports screen. It is the square between the vertical and horizontal rulers.

    Now go to the properties dialog and select the events (small thunder), then select the ItemDataBinding or ItemDataBound event.

    That should work. If you have any trouble handling reports, refer to this: Tutorial

    Hope this helps.

    Ricardo,

    Scratch the last respones to you.  I found out where to hook the event.

    The problem is that at the point of ItemDataBound, the height of the panel is still the default size, it hasn't been changed.  so the function:

    private void detail_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    {

    Line1.Height = panel2.Height;

    Line2.Height = panel2.Height;

    }

    returns the default size of the panel, not the resized panel based on it's content...

    Any ideas?

    -Chuck

    Hi guys,

    There is no event which you can use to adjust the size. The height of the TextBox is determined just before the item is rendered on the canvas. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but at this moment you can't achieve the desired effect.

    I'm new to Telerik reporting and this thread is exactly what I need to do, but 3 years later.  Has this "table report item" been developed now?  I'm using version 2008 Q1 SP1.

    Hi Carrie,

    Yes table item is available in Telerik Reporting since Q1 2009 (more than an year now). As a new user, in order to get familiar in a fast and straight-forward manner with our Reporting offering, we suggest you visit the online resources linked below:

    Online examples

    Online documentation

    KB articles

    Code library

    Video Tutorials

    Blog posts


    Of course, you can browse the public forum as well in order to find specific information/code sample concerning an aspect of the Reporting features. There are numerous threads which can get you started/assist you through the development process.

    For example a quick search in our documentation for "table" shows the relevant help articles for the item.

    Regards,
    Steve

    Thanks Steve:

    My issue now is that we're on version Q1 2008, as mentioned in my previous post.  I'm semi stuck with this version (so I think) since most of our existing web apps use this version.  We have no plans (or time) to upgrade all reports to this version.  Is there a way to use different version side-by-side?

    Hi Carrie,

    Unfortunately no. You would have to upgrade to a newer version if you want to take advantage of new report items.

    Best wishes,
