Hi,

 I have abandoned tables due to grouping issues and am now using textboxes and report groups.  In a group header, I have 5 texboxes which all have CanGrow set to True.

The problem is that when one text box grows in height, the others stay the same size.  I would like all textboxes to be the same height after the report renders.  So if one text box has to grow, the others should grow to that same size.

I tried to use anchoring, but I have textboxes above and below so they end up overlapping if I anchor them.

Is there anyway to get all texboxes in a group to grow in height dynamically depending on the size of the largest?

 Thanks,

Phillip

Hello Phillip,

Test adding a Table item bound to data via binding and expression like ReportItem.DataObject. Thus the item will use only the data scope of the container section. Then TextBox items can be aligned by placing them in the Table item.

I hope this information is helpful.

Thanks Stef.

 I have an uncommon situation where we need groups of textboxes to grow together in spite of textboxes above or below.  Each group may need its own binding depending on certain values.  Therefor, I was able to accomplish my goal by putting each row group of textboxes in a separate report group and setting anchoring on all textboxes to 'top' and 'bottom'.
