Hi,

I try to replicate our invoices in Telerik Report but I've got some problems with Header and Footer.

I'm searching in forum but I don't find a solution for my problem, afraid there's not.

Here's my problem :our invoice can have several pages. The header and footer of the first page are different from those to the next pages.

For the header, I think I've found a solution using ReportHeaderSection for the first page and PageHeaderSection with PrintOnFirstPage property to false. But for the footer, no solution, please help me. 

I would really want to use telerik product for my company (because they are the best ;), so I need a solution.

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

To achieve your goal, please use the Report Book feature, namely you can create a second report that would contain only the header and footer you need and when you combine this report with your actual one, it would act as first/title page.

Hi Ivan,

What is the solution for that case when the detail section does not fit into a single page and therefor you get a 2 page report, and on the second (and subsequent) pages you need to have a different footer. I am also using a report footer that needs to be after the detail section, so group footer is not a solution either.

Thanks.

Hi Roland,

If it is only a matter of report of two pages, then you can use report header/footer and page sections i.e.

1st page:
PageHeader is not shown - PrintOnFirstPage=false
Report Header
.....
PageFooter

2nd page:
PageHeader
.....
ReportFooter
PageFooter is not shown - PrintOnLastPage=false

Hi Steve

I've tried your solution, but even though the page header is not visible on the first page, it still takes up white space. Is there a way to completely disable it?

Additionally, it does not work for the footer, since the report footer cannot be "pushed" to the bottom of the page, and I need it to be there.

Isn't there a plan in the Telerik Reporting roadmap to include multiple page sections (Page Footer a, b, c...) like in Crystal, because otherwise these layouting issues will become very cumbersome to deal with (and the business does not really care how we solve it...)

Thanks and regards,
Roland

Hi Roland,

This behavior is by design (see Understanding Rendering Behaviors) and cannot be changed in the current version, but we have some changes in mind that could allow this to happen for subsequent version.

Kind regards,
