Hi all,

I am attempting to build an invoice type of report. The goal is to have the customers bill to/ship to in the "Header", the items they ordered listed in the "Details" and the subtotal, taxes, grand total all in the "Footer".

I have the "Footer" set to print at the bottom of the page.

The challenge is to create vertical lines in the details section to separate the fields of information visually. I wish these to extend all the way down from the top of the "Detail" section to the top of the "Footer" section.

In Crystal Reports (sorry) I would draw a line from the top of one section and pass it into the next section.

How can this be achieved?

I attached a simple example of what I am seeing. In the picture, the goal is to extend that line all the way down to the area labeled as "Group Footer".

Hi Brian,

Footer sections with PrintAtBottom are rendered at the bottom of the physical page. Still the space between them and the last report section is empty. To have lines drawn in between you can add background image as report's PageSetting.BackgroundImage property.

The result will be visible in print preview of the report.


I hope this helps.

Stef

Hi Shanti,

We have a similar request in our feedback portal, please feel free to vote for it: Better support for form type reports. In general, new features are selected for development based on the demand from our community. 

At the moment, to achieve the desired appearance you can set an image that imitates vertical lines extending to the bottom of the page in the report section's Style.BackgroundImage property.

Silviya,

Re: At the moment, to achieve the desired appearance you can set an image that imitates vertical lines extending to the bottom of the page in the report section's Style.BackgroundImage property.

So you would have to have a different image for each page size, letter vs legal (etc)?

Played with creating a graphic for both a 2 and 3 column report.  This is definitely a kludgy work around.  I had to play around with the width of the graphic to move the line.  I could not set where the graphic was located.

As this is something most other reporting tools do out of the box, is this something that is on the roadmap to implement?

Hello Ken and namit,

With R1 2021 scheduled for January 20th, 2021 we will provide a new item, 'CrossSection' that would allow for achieving the requirement.

Hello Ken and Namit,

The 'CrossSection' item will allow for connecting two report sections, for example, Header and Footer. Hence, you would be able to draw a vertical line through the entire details section.

The Documentation is updated with the new item description and API and will be available after releasing R1 2021 today.
