    How do I set up gridlines so it looks like the data is in a table with lines. Like Excel. I've search the docs and forums but cant find what I'm looking for.

    Long week, sorry if this doesn't make sense.

    Hello Andy Green,

    Generally speaking there are two ways you can "simulate" gridlines for the report:
    • using dock/anchor along with applying solid border for the textbox items (more info here)
    • use the shape item to create horizontal/vertical lines in the report
    However the above do not really make sense if you're aiming for table layout. In such case simply use our table item and set borders to the textboxes in the table cells.

    Hi,
        I use our table item and set borders to the textboxes in the table cells. But there is a problem that the bottom border of the first page, the top border of the last page and the top and bottom border of the middles pages are not visible. How can I solve it. The attach files is some information.

    Best Regards.
    Jeremy

    Hello Jeremy,

    This behavior is by design and cannot be changed. There are no borders because the table item continues to another page i.e. if there is a border, that would indicate that the table item has finished, which is not the case. In fact competitor products behave in the same manner e.g. SSRS.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Steve,
         I agree with your concept that " if there is a border, that would indicate that the table item has finished, which is not the case".  However , in general, every report include PageFooter which could be set to  indicate  the index of page. It also can tell the user whether the table item has finished. I think  the developers have power to control  the border of table according to requirement.

    Kind Regards
    Jeremy.

    Hi Jeremy,

    The fact that there is a next page is not related to whether the table item is over or not. Your report layout might contain various report items other than Table, so there might be pages without Table. Currently it is not possible to detect where a databound Table would end (i.e. how many pages it would occupy).
