Could someone offer some advice with the following issue.  I have created a Telerik Winforms report R3 2016.   When I display the page footer, the report adds extra blank pages to the report.  Basically for every page of data displayed it prints an extra page at the end.  ie:  3 pages of data, 3 pages of just the header and a blank footer.  The problem only occurs when the footer is displayed, I do not have any controls in the page footer.  If I hide the page footer the problem goes away.

Note:  I have tried setting the length of the detail and page footer section to not extend beyond 8 inches (no difference). 

 

Would anyone know what is causing this weird behavior.

 

Thanks

 

Dave.

Hello Dave,

Thank you for writing.

Can you please specify the product and control you are using? If possible please also provide me with detailed information how I can observe the behavior reported on your end.

I hope this helps. Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Hristo:  The product is a Telerik R3 2016 report in Visual Studio 2015,  I am using the table control.  I am experiencing the issue because I have a 'Table' control on my report but I rotated the layout where the rows expand to the right for every data row.  I believe that the issue is coming from the table.  When you have 5 pages of data, Telerik will display10 actual pages.  The first 5 pages will be like laying the report out on a table horizontally.  Then what I think is happening, is that when you have a footer it will display the next 5 pages as the horizontal footer pages.  ie: 5 pages of data horizontally and then 5 pages of footer below and horizontally.

My Question:  Is there anyway (with a rotated table layout) to have the footer print on the bottom of each of the first 5 pages only.  It's counterintuitive because you think that there will be a footer page on each printed page of data.  ie: the first horizontal row of data.

 

Dave.

Please disregard this post, I have figured out the problem.  I was using a group footer vs a page footer.  Once I made the change, the report printed as expected.

 

Thanks Dave

Hello Dave,

It seems that you've managed to resolve the issue. I think that the cause of the blank pages was that the page break was inserted both horizontally and vertically.

Common troubleshooting steps for such issues can be reviewed in Problem: Telerik Reporting renders blank pages KB article. For example, it is helpful to set the background color of report items and sections to different colors. This way you can see how they grow at runtime and what sections/items produce the blank pages.
