I'm confused how exactly you make a section "invisible". While in design mode you can collapse a section to make room for the other sections and have better view of the rest of the report content. This can be achieved by clicking the section header's + sign. Expanding/collapsing a section is a design-time feature and it does not affect the report definition. The other way you can make a section (an item) invisible is by setting it Visible
property to false
. This property takes effect only at runtime while rendering the report. In design time all items are always visible regardless the value of the Telerik.Reporting.ReportItemBase.Visible
property. Could you give us the steps you take so that we can reproduce the problem?
Thank you for the thoughts on the the sequence of the sections in the report designer. The current setup is by design and we have decided to do it this way after quite of discussion. Let me explain:
Page header and page footer always appear as topmost and respectively bottommost sections of the page. The place between them is where the report content goes. The Report Header section is part of the report content even if it appears only once at the top of the report. It makes sense to have the page header and footer on the first/last page. This is why we decided to show the page header and footer in design time this way. If this seems inconvenient, we are ready to rethink our position.
All the best,
