    Hi,

    when i used telerik reporting when the records are less we are not getting the bottom border.

    same way we are not getting the right border also.

     please find the screenshot.


    In our application we are using Reports.
    In that we've using sub reports. In Sub Report  while exporting to excel its works fine
    but when we merge that report in Main report ,then export to excel its Showing error -"Error.Png". 


    Pls have a glance on the attached snapshots and provide me some solution.


    Thanks & Regards,
    Karthik

    Hello Manoj Bonam,

    The export to excel error is related to the nested Table/List and is a known problem. Our suggestion is to avoid nesting Table/SubReport items inside another table item for the time being until we are able to address this problem or decide to forbid nesting as most of our competitors have done. 
    We notice that you're not binding the main report but instead you are using table/list. You should change your report accordingly by placing the SubReport directly in the report's detail section and bind the report.
    Anyway we're currently looking into the MS Open XML formats (docx, xlsx etc), so it is likely that this problem does not occur in the new xlsx format.

    Up to the missing borders, we had similar issue that is resolved in the latest internal build. Please download and install the latest internal build and make sure you don't have any overlapped items. Overlapped items can cause unexpected behavior in the HTML rendering.

    If you still experience any difficulties we will appreciate if you open a support ticket and send us a sample project that exhibits the behavior to debug locally.

    All the best,
    Peter

    Downloading latest internal build (4.2.11.204) did not help with HTML Preview or report viewer weform view.  
    Developing in VS 2010 Pro

    Playing around came up with a working solution. To address borders not showing in my case the right borders of any table were being cut off, so I selected each table (not the panel):

        1. Display properties
        2. Expand Style property
        3. Expand Padding property
        4. set Right to 1 inch

    Save, recompile and the right borders will now show.

    Step 4 change to 0.05 inch, because 1 inch side effect is you get every other page a blank page.

    I am having the same issue here. The right border doesn't appear on panels and tables when viewing the report in the Html Preview pane.

    Everything looks fine in Chrome and Firefox, but not in IE (tested with 6, 7, 8 and 9).

    I removed the meta tag which changes the document type in IE.

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

    The problem appears on IE6, 7 and 8. On IE 8, when I switch the document mode to IE7 and then back to IE8 in the integrated debugger (F12) the borders appear (weird behavior, since the document mode is IE8 when I run the page for the first time).

    In IE9, the borders appear when the document is rendering in IE9 mode and has the same problem when running in IE8 mode (with the meta tag)

    I hope this get fixed in the near future since we are looking to replace our existing reporting solution. Telerik Reporting looks really promising, but this little glitch is very annoying.

    Thank you

    Hello Scott,

    This is a known problem that occurred in Q3 release while we were making changes to the HTML rendering in order to make it standards compliant and cross browser.
    In this line of thoughts, we have plans to review the HTML rendering and improve it in the forthcoming releases of the product as one of our major goals. For the time being please use the padding workaround for IE 8 and IE 9. We've made tests with our demo reports and did not notice the problem after this intervention.

    Please excuse us for the temporary inconvenience.

    Kind regards,
    Steve

    This workaround works fine when rendering HTML, but I also need to be able to print and export to PDF. The padding on the right makes a weird effect on the my table. Anything else I can do?

    Is there a approximative release date for the next release that permanently will fix this issue?

    Hello Jason,

    We would probably have the HTML revamp ready for the Q3 release. By the way can you explain what is the weird effect on your table or provide us with a screenshot that shows the issue?

    Hello Scott,

    It seems that you've set quite a big right padding to the table. Try using 1mm instead and let us know of the outcome.

    Best wishes,

    2 px is the minimum padding I can use to fix the problem with the HTML preview.
    It still adds an empty space on the right.

    I am experiencing the same issue, I applied a 0.1in padding to the table in order to get it to work properly for me, due to the fact I am using a double outlined border. This does seem like a bit of band-aid solution. I would like to be kept up-to-date on the resolution of this

    Same thing here, keep running into this issue.  The padding trick doesn't seem to always work for me, and when it does work most of the time it causes random blank pages.  What I have started doing, although it has its own problems is wrapping my panel in a second panel.  This second panel will have a vertical line shape, docked right, and a horizontal line shape, docked bottom.  Each of these having a 1px width and height, respectively.  This is definitely a hack, and I want to remove it as soon as I can, but it feels less like voodoo than the padding fix.

    Eagerly awaiting a fix to the renderer in Q3...

    Same issue here.  I'm using IE7, along with latest version of Telerik Reports (as of July 29, 2011.)  And, just setting the padding to something greater than zero worked.

    Hi guys,
    Upgrading to Q3 2011 solved the missing borders issue for me. :)
