Hi,

I am in doubt which approach is the better.

I have a collection of a custom businessobject as datasource on a subreport.
it has two properties. A typetitle and a text. Both strings

Data could be like this.

TypeTitle, Text
TypeExample1, TextExample11
TypeExample1, TextExample12
TypeExample1, TextExample13
TypeExample2, TextExample21
TypeExample2, TextExample22
TypeExample3, TextExample31

I want the report to render as this:

TypeExample1
   TextExample11    TextExample13
   TextExample12

TypeExample2
   TextExample21    TextExample22

TypeExample3
   TextExample31

I tried to look a columns, but it also includes the groupheader.

Is there a simple approach for this, or do I have do a hacked solution with extra subreports etc.

Hope for a quick reponse.

Thanks!
Morten

Hi Morten Louw,

We are not sure that we have correctly understood your inquiry, however here is a suggestion: create a Report Group with grouping TypeTitle. In the group header add a TypeTitle and in the detail section add a Text field. To enable multi columns, set the detail's section property ColumnCount to 2. 

Hope this help.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply and sorry if I'm unclear.

I allways want the groupheader to be in the left side of the layout. As I understand the grouping feature, it is put in the columns.

Is that possible? I have considered using reportheader and subreports. It just seems a bit overkill for a rather simple feature.

Looking forward to hear your repsonse.

Kind regards,
Morten :)

Hello Morten Louw,

There is no out of the box way for what you're after - the groupheader as any other report section for that matter would always be present in all columns as this is how the multicolumns feature currently works. Only the page sections (Page Header/Footer) are shown once per page independently of whether it is a multicolumn report or not, but you cannot use data bound fields in them as they are not related to the report itself, but are relative to the margins of the report's media.

Hi again,

The request is specifically from my client, so I will try to make a solution using subreports or something.

Thanks for your responses!

Kind regards,
Morten
