Hi, I'm using version Q1 2013.

We have a report which consists of several panels laid out next to each other vertically - each panel contains a header textblock and a table for rendering fields.

When the panels are not shown, they should collapse so that panels underneath take their space completely (ie, so there are no whitespace gaps).

If I set the visibility of a section panel to false using conditional formatting, then the panel does not display, but the whitespace does not collapse either as desired. It looks like the panel is still taking up the minimum amount of space as it does in the designer.

How do I go about resolving this? I thought that this would just work out of the box, so not sure what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,

Sam

Hello Sam,

The behaviour of hiding and collapsing items is described in the following article: Design Considerations for Report Item Layout.
Items on the "second row" will go up only if you hide the entire "first row", meaning that if you have 3 panels on top, all of them must be hidden in order for the items below to take their place. If that does not suit your needs, you will need to create some custom logic that will move the items around depending on the configuration. 
 

All the best,
