Hi,

Is there a possibility to have different headers for first page and all other pages?

I am trying to design sort of statement - the first page must look similar to this:
============================================================================
+--------------------------------------------+        +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|     Company Logo Image              |          | Client:  <Client name goes here>                                      |
|                                                      |          | Address: <Addess line 1>                                                  |
+--------------------------------------------+         |                <Address line 2>                                                 |
                                                                  |                <Address line 3>                                                 |
                                                                  +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
                                                                  | Account #: 123456                     Account Type: Abcdefg  |
                                                                  +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
============================================================================

All the rest of the pages should not include Client name and address box but include Logo and Account # box

Is it possible and if yes how

Thank you!

Hello Michael,

You can create Report Header (which is printed only once, on the first page) and set the PrintOnFirstPage property of the Page Header to false.
However, the space occupied from the page header will not shrink (it will just appear blank).

Hi,

Page sections cannot be resized. Another approach that you can use, instead of report header is to use Conditional Formatting based on the PageNumber global object to hide certain items from the page header. Still however as my colleague explained, the section would not shrink which might lead to undesired look.

Hello Kelly,

In the next internal build the blank space left from hidden page section will not be kept any more.
We will publish the internal build later this week.

Edited by admin: The feature is not included to avoid performance issues with the paging mechanism. For solutions, please refer to the following comments by the Admin team.

Hi Peter,

Is this internal build to remove "blank space left from hidden page section" available yet? I have exactly the same requirement to have different page headers between page 1 vs page 2+ as Michael.

Hello Ricky,

For your scenario currently our suggestion is to use my colleagues suggestion and use report header and page header. About collapsing page sections feature we will need more time to make sure it's fine tuned and will not cause any unexpected behaviors. Thus the feature is delayed and we will introduce it once we are sure we can deliver it with Telerik quality.

All the best,
Peter

Hi,

if you would like to be better than Crystel Report or Jasper Report you have to solve this problem which is standard for a report designer.
Is there any change to get a early resolution?

Thanks
All the best

Hi everyone,

The feature is in our plans and will be released when are able to provide a high quality solution. Until that moment, please use the PrintOnFirstPage property to show/hide the PageHeaderSection on the first page, or apply conditional formatting toggling the section visibility based on the PageNumber objectthe remaining empty space will not be omitted.

Let us know if you have any other concerns.

Kind regards,

is too bad the lack of this feature. Ugly is my project to have 90% of the reports in telerik and 10% customized in the crystal due to telerik does not solve the problem. in 2012 there would be a solution and nothing so far.

this is a sample why we need the shrink spaces

I try to separate in sections too...but group sections does not print PageNumber and PageCount and I need in this report.

And Why Tables print the last just in the last page? 

This report attached is a Brazilian document known as DANFE or billing.

Its a standard defined by our Government.

Hi Carlos,

Based on the provided screenshot I can suggest you to split the content in several reports, which are gathered in a ReportBook. Knowing the report layout, the used items/sections sizes and PageSettings, you can determine what amount of records can be gathered on a single physical page and retrieve only this bit of data records in the first report. Then the rest of the reports can have different layout and get the rest of the data.
Finally, gathering all reports in a ReportBook object will allow you to display and process them as a single document.

If you need more help with the above suggestion, please open a support ticket and send us the current report files, including test data to run it.

Stef

Hi Larry,

I suppose the best option for you and all others is currently to vote for this feature: http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/162/Feedback/Details/138933-ability-for-report-header-to-reclaim-empty-space-left-by-conditional-formatting

Hi,

Having page sections with varying sizes between physical pages is not supported. Feel free to use the public feedback portal and log your own request or vote for already existing one.

As a workaround please test the suggestion from my previous post. Create a report displaying only the first page information, and another one for the rest pages. then gather them in a ReportBook that can be processed as a single document.

Stef

Hi,

I wish telerik had the feature, however Active reports by GrapeCity already has this feature.  They even have a report type called "Page Reports" that allow you to overlay a static image like an invoice, and simply position your fields to "fill" the invoice.  Looks fantastic.

Hi,

You can use a report having only a Detail section with proper sizes considered with the report's PageSettings and the image that will be used as background.

If the above suggestion does not fit your requirements, please fill free to describe in the details the searched functionality in our feedback portal.

Stef

Not sure if you found a work around, but I submitted a enhancement request for this exact issue.  The other feedback link in this thread doesn't truly, IMO, solve the issue you had, as I am having the same issue, with a multi column report.  

 

Here is the feedback link:  Page Header Band that Grows/Shrink based on controls in it

 

TBH, I am surprised that this feature still doesn't exist.

Hi Selvan,

By design, page sections do not grow or shrink. If the content is added in a PageHeaderSection, items may get clipped if they do not fit in the available space. They are rendered on every page at the height specified when you created the respective page section - Understanding Rendering Behaviors.
