    Hi all,

    I have a Telerik report that is working as expected.  The report list items in several pages.

    The report consist of several columns displaying items' fields.

    Once I add a barcode control to the items' columns, the report begin to produce a blank page after every single page.

    I am sure that the barcode is behind this issue as once I remove the barcode control things are back to normal.

    Even If I add a textbox instead of barcode the report print as expected.

    I have tried all the available features to get rid of the added blank page but could not.

    Please advise and many thanks

    ps. I am using Telerik Reporting Q1 2016

    Hello Khalid,

    Blank pages are most probably caused by horizontal overflow.
    In general, if the report spans over several pages in width then its sections are stretched from the left edge of the left-most page’s printable area to the right edge of the right-most page’s printable area, as displayed in the Understanding Pagination help article.
    If your report item (Barcode) is too wide to fit on the page it will cause a horizontal overflow and will continue on the next page. However whenever this happens if there is additional content below the list a blank page for each additional page will be generated.

    You can better observe the list behavior by setting its Style.BackgroundColor property of the sections/items.

    In case you need further help on your particular report and data, please send us a runnable sample report with test data, so we can review it locally and advise accordingly.

    Progress Telerik
