Hi,

I have a report with a lot of texboxes like this:

labelTextBox1    valueTextBox1
labelTextBox2    valueTextBox2
labelTextBox3    valueTextBox3
and so on...

If the value of a textbox is an empty string (or some other condition) I wan't to hide that textbox and the corresponding labelTextBox AND make the following labels and textboxes shift up filling the empty space.

Let's say valueTextBox2 is empty what I wan't it to like is this:

labelTextBox1    valueTextBox1
labelTextBox3    valueTextBox3

and NOT like this (with an empty line):

labelTextBox1    valueTextBox1

labelTextBox3    valueTextBox3

I just upgraded to version 2.5.8.519 from version 1.1.0.0 where this worked fine. How can I make this look like in version 1.1.0.0?

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Bo,

You can review the following help articles that elaborate on the matter:
We do not recall making any changes in this functionality since v.1.x, can you explain how you've achieved this with the older version?

Hi Steve,

My problem was that I had to columns of labels/textboxes like this

labelTextBox1    valueTextBox1            labelTextBox4    valueTextBox4
labelTextBox2    valueTextBox2            labelTextBox5    valueTextBox5
labelTextBox3    valueTextBox3            labelTextBox6    valueTextBox6

Hiding labelTextBox2 and valueTextBox2 wouldn't make labelTextBox3 and valueTextBox3 move up because of the second column. I think I only had one column when using version 1.1.

I solved the problem by putting each column of labels/textboxes in a panel.

Don't know if this is a bug?!

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Bo,

This is not a bug, but the expected behavior. When you nest your items in a panel, basically they become a separate element of the report and the generic rules of the report apply to the panel directly instead of the report as a whole.

Hello Fim,

Here it is the correct url to the How do I 'shrink' TextBoxes that have no data? help article.
It seems that the second link doesn't exist anymore. In case you want to hide a control, my suggestion is to use Bindings to control the visible property.


Kind regards,
