My report layout is attached
I need to have this in a4 sheet

Section 1 - Constant Height (Bottom of A4)
Section 2 - It will vary its height according to list of data (Above section 1)
Section 3 - Picture should occupy remaining A4 page sheet (Remaining part of the paper)

What is did was
Section 1 is docked bottom
Section 2 is docked bottom (above section 1)
Section 3 is docked fill

Attached my output

When my Section 2 is bigger then details are showed by generating the second page
I need to fit all in a single page by reducing the picture size(section 3)


Is there any way to get the size of the table while setting the size of the picture.

Hello Avik,

Our Docking does not work the same way as the WinForms docking does. When a report item is docked to an edge of its container, it is always positioned to flush against that edge when the container is resized. 
However, when one item inside the parent container grows, that won't make other items (with Docking: Fill) shrink. 
Unfortunately your scenario cannot be accomplished using docking. 
The only solution that can give you a similar result is to try and calculate the height of Section 2 knowing how tall each row is and knowing how many rows you have. However this might give you trouble with growing rows and most likely there will be cases when it won't behave properly.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q1 2013? You can get them from your account.
