    Hello,

    I have a simple report that shows a barcode and a little text.
    I need the report to display 100% wide on the screen.

    How it looks on a mobile device. It's too small!

    Preview in webpage

    What should I change here? Change the report settings or the web page that displays the report's settings?

    thanks for any help (I'm feeling stuck)


    <telerik:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server"
                
               Report="MobleTicketClassLib.Report1, MobleTicketClassLib, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
               ShowDocumentMapButton="False" ShowExportGroup="False"
               ShowHistoryButtons="False" ShowNavigationGroup="False"
               ShowParametersButton="False" ShowPrintButton="False" ShowRefreshButton="False"
               ToolbarVisible="False" Width="600px">
           </telerik:ReportViewer>

    Hi, this is how the mobile browsers work. I am not sure I can help you but I have observed that the mobile browsers are zooming out the sites by default. This way you can see the whole site and then zoom in on the interesting parts.

    This seems a reasonable option. My oppinion is to try it and article may help you http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/programmatic-exporting-report.html.

    But when it comes to mobile browses I find the http://www.webcredible.co.uk/user-friendly-resources/web-usability/mobile-guidelines.shtml article helpful.
