Hello
I have a report with a pageheader-section, detail-section and a pagefooter-section. In the detail-section I have a table. I have a border around every section to frame in the report into my website.
When I look at my report in the HTML-preview everything looks great, but when I use the other preview-button (I think it is img rendering) my report have a big empty gap between the end of the detail-section and the beginning of the pagefooter-section .I want my border to continue all the way down to my pagefooter. In other words I want my detail section to continue all the way down to my pagefooter. Please help me with this annoying designerror.

Hi Emil,

This is by design as the Html has no concept for physical pages, while the PDF is a page oriented format (more info in Design Considerations for Report Rendering). There is no direct answer to your question as what you're after is a WYSIWYG solution which is inherent to document creation software, while the report is not such software. A report uses template rules and renders data according to those rules on every page
of the report. You can find more info on what a report is and is not in our Reporting White Paper.
With that being said, if you're aiming for a single page type of form (DataSource has a single datarow or report is not bound at all), then you can probably adjust the detail section to stretch as much as needed with appropriate height. But if this is a report that would generate numerous pages, then such solution would not be possible and not meant to work at all.

Sincerely yours,
