Hey there.

Just got another little problem and a question.

I've designed a kind of catlogue.
My catalogue is grouped by manufacturer.
The report itself has two columns.
Now i want to print in the page footer the current manufacturer logo.
I've figured out, that this is not possible (page footer) so i thougt i maybe can print in the group footer.
this would work fine but the group footer is only shown half the page width because of the second column i think.

How can i solve this?

Now to my question:
In Microsoft Access for example i can set the column-fill-direction. (straight, zig zag...)
Is this possible with telerik too?

Hello Thomas,

Your observations are correct and you can't span the Group Header/Footer to the Page's width, when multi column is used. Please elaborate more on you specific scenario, send us a sample report or/and screenshoots so we can advise you accordingly.

About the column-fill-direction, currently the column data is rendered only down the page and then across.

I've solved the problem with my group footer by putting the image i want to display in the Page footer and calclulate it by my own.

So there is another question if cant set the culumn-fill-direction:

Is there a way to find out the column in which the group footer is printed?

Hi Thomas Schuster,

The columns are created in the report's rendering step. This is the last step of the Report Life Cycle. Thus there is no way to find out in which column the group footer will render. Once again please elaborate on your scenario, send us a sample report or/and screenshoots so we can advise you accordingly.
