Hello,

I have Telerik Reporting v2.5.8.519 and have a ReportViewer on a SharePoint page.  I put this on using SharePoint Designer and it is working as it should.

The only problem I have is that I want to resize the ReportViewer to 100% of available space on the screen.  I can set the report height in pixels (i.e., Height="500px") which makes the ReportViewer 500 pixels high.  However, if I put in Height="100%" then the ReportViewer does NOT fill up the screen height.  It only fills up the <div> the ReportView control lives in.

How do I do this?

Thanks,

Randall Price

Hi Randall,

In order to have the Web ReportViewer display with 100% height in Internet Explorer, you would need to remove the VS default doctype (or use a less restrictive one) and apply height to the whole DOM tree:

<style type="text/css">   
  html#html, body#body, form#form1, div#content, center#center
  { 
   border: 0px solid black;
   padding: 0px;
   margin: 0px;
   height: 100%;
  }
</style>

This is required for IE only as other browsers handle this automatically.

All the best,

Hello Steve,

Thanks for the response.  What do you mean by using a less restrictive DOCTYPE?  Can you give me an example of one that would work with the style changes you recommend?

I do have this "sort-of" working by adding some JavaScript to the page to handle window resizing and to calculate the height of the report viewer.  This is not the best solution in my opinion.

Thanks,

Hello Randall,

You can see available doctypes and how they control the browser modes in the info table provided here. For example using <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> IE should display the ReportViewer height properly.

Hi Randall,

Do you mind sharing the steps you took to embed the report viewer in SharePoint (I have tried web parts, the designer, etc and no sucess)? 
Also, did you have success with getting the viewer to show at 100%?  I am also attempting the same.

Thank you very much!

Hi ALL,

I cannot get the viewer to display at 100% height eventhough I have done Steve's suggestion.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Hello Fety,

Can you describe what is the behavior you receive after following the info I've provided? Did you "apply height to the whole DOM tree" for your specific page as advised? Note that without doing this you would not be able to stretch the viewer to 100% height. For more info please review the ReportViewer.aspx page from the examples shipped with Telerik Reporting installation.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your quick response.

Yes, I have applied the height to the whole DOM tree for the specific page as advised. The result that I got is there is not even a single line displayed (in other words, it is the same as if I set the height as 0px).

However, if I set the ReportViewer height to 1100px (as mentioned in http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reporting/telerik-reporting/generating-report-position.aspx), the vertical scroll bar will be removed and I will have the web browser vertical scroll bar only. Is there any drawback if I use this method?

Thanks,
Fety

Hi Fety,

These are two different things, and having specific height/width would only work as expected, when you work with a predefined resolution only. If a user has a smaller/bigger screen with different resolution it would not look right.

Hi Steve,

In this case, how would you suggest me to do? Since with the first method, I am not able to get what I expected.
Thank you very much in advance.

</asp:Content> 
 

In my case, I have set the <div> containing the ReportViewer to initially display at 400x600 pixels because it seemed like it needed to be set to something and this was as good a value as any.  The JavaScript code immediately resizes the <div> to fill the height and width to 100%.  I had to tweak the height and width values until I got just the look I wanted (thus the "- 6" and the "- 15" in the calculation in the calcSize() function.  The side affect is that the ReportViewer initially comes up as 400x600 while loading, but once loaded, properly resizes to fill the <div> 100%.  I can live with this.

I noticed after I initially posted this issue, Steve from Telerik has added a few comments about properly applying the padding and margin styles to the entire DOM tree.  I have not explored this technique in full, but if I do I will post my results here.

Hope this helps,

Randall Price

Hi.

I'm having an issue with this solution.

I open a RadWindow with a page that has a reportviewer. My page is as follow:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="PrintJob.aspx.cs" Inherits="Mediacom.Web.PrintJob" %> 
 
<%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Assembly="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms" Namespace="Telerik.ReportViewer.WebForms" %> 
 
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > 
<head runat="server"
    <title></title
    <style type="text/css">    
      #rptvwrMainViewer_ReportToolbar_NavGr_CurrentPage_TotalPages 
      { 
        width: 50px; 
      } 
 
      html#html, body#body, form#form1, div#content, center#center 
      {  
       border: 0px solid black; 
       padding: 0px; 
       margin: 0px; 
       height: 100%; 
      } 
    </style> 
</head> 
<body> 
    <form id="form1" runat="server"
    <div> 
        <telerik:ReportViewer ID="rptvwrMainViewer" runat="server" Width="100%" Height="100%" 
            ShowParametersButton="False" Skin="WebBlue"
        </telerik:ReportViewer>     
    </div> 
    </form> 
</body> 
</html> 
 

It works ok with Firefox, but on IE it doesn't work. It's only showing the reportviewer toolbar but no report, just a line.

What's wrong with my implementation?

Thanks.

Nevermind.

Just found out how to make it work. Modified the following lines:

    <form id="form1" runat="server" style="height:100%; width:100%"
    <div style="height:100%; width:100%"
 

Thanks!

Sorry for the thread resurrection, but these solutions no longer work. Firefox 15 shows a truncated reportviewer, IE9 shows nothing.

Hi Phil,

The provided solution in our first post in this thread is valid, but you just have not implemented it correctly. If you copy the <style></style> from it as is (or only leave the height css attribute), you would notice that the viewer would be displayed correctly i.e.:

<style type="text/css">  
  html#html, body#body, form#form1, div#content
  {
   height: 100%;
  }
</style>

Another option you have is changing the DOCTYPE on your page as mentioned in the second post from this thread i.e.:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

Both solutions yielded the same correct result.

Kind regards,

Thanks Steve, it did work once I copied the code correctly. My apologies, I was having blood sugar issues and my brain was obviously not working properly!

I've got some issues with scrollbars to work out, but I'm on the right track now.

Hello Pooja,

The registered report viewer is not Telerik Reporting viewer:
<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=11.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken="" Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

If you want to use Telerik Reporting, you need to have reports created with Telerik report designers and Telerik report viewers (ASP.NET ReportViewer or the HTML5 Report Viewer).

The viewer's size can be controlled via CSS attributes to the DIV element in which is rendered the content. For example take a look at this forum post that illustrates how to size the ASP.NET ReportViewer.

I hope this helps you.

Regards,
Stef
