Hi Shiwani,

By default, TextBox item only grows vertically to fit its content. Changing the width of the TextBox depending on the length of the text can be achieved with a binding for the Width property of the TextBox.

The approach is demonstrated in the attached report (can be opened with Standalone Designer 2017).

I hope this would be helpful.

Hello Shiwani,

This error occurs due to the version mismatch, reports created with newer version of Standalone Designer cannot be opened with older version of Standalone Designer.

Report that can be opened with R3 2016 version is attached to this post.

Hi Shiwani,

Textbox Items grow only vertically - Design Considerations for Report Item Layout, where you can use custom logic to make them expand horizontally based on the data (the proposed approach with the binding). You may need to place the item in a larger Panel item to avoid misplacing other items in the report.
