    Hello

    I am trying to create an Invoice with columns for quantity, price and amount. It should also have a summary at the bottom of the page. The columns should have a border and stretch all the way down to the summary (see attached picture). Is there any way to say that a section should fill out the remaining space of a page?
    So far I solved this by summarize the height of each section and calculate the remaining space on the page and setting the result to the height of a group footer (see the green area on the report). But this solution does not work when a textbox can grow since there seems to be no way to get the rendered height of a textbox.

    Hello David,

    Report sections do not stretch to the bottom of the page i.e., if there are only a few records of data, the detail section would not border with the page footer. Currently there is no way to achieve continuous section to the bottom of the page, except for the approach that you described.

    With the new releases of Telerik reporting, has this problem been solved.  If so, how?
    I need to create an invoice report and regardless of number of rows in the details section I need the border to stretch to the footer section.

    Hello Silvia,

    With the latest version of Telerik Reporting, you can position a group footer at the bottom of the page using the  PrintAtBottom property. However, the previous section will not stretch to take the space which is left between the section and the footer.

    I found this topic while searching the forum because my company have the same requirment.

    Now that I know it's not possible I'm very concerned because I need  this kind of layout too.
    I think this is a serious limitation for a professional reporting solution because this kind of layout is very common for invoice and other business documents.

    Please suggest a workaround or think about implementig this feature very soon.

    Thank you.
