Hi,
I bind an image to a Uri read from the DB. I need to be able to set the position along the x axis from an int value read from the DB. How can I set the position?
Thanks.
Wayne

Hi Steve,
thanks but I have tryed this but get the following error:

= location(Fields.LogoPosition) cannot be parsed as a unit because it does not contain numeric values. examples of valid unit strings are 1pt and .5in.
It is a PictureBox I am trying to set the position on.
Thangs again

This "location" should be a user function that returns Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit. And it should take 1 parameter of type typeof(LogoPosition).

thanks again, I now have some invalid arguments in the return statement! My function is as below.

public

 

 

static Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit location(double pos)

{

return new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit(new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit(pos, Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.UnitType.Cm),
new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit(pos, Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.UnitType.Cm));

}


Thanks again for the help

Kind regards
Wayne

Sorry, I have mislead you. The function should return Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.PointU.

Hi again,
I've change the function to the following:

public static Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.PointU location(double pos)
{

return new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.PointU(new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit(pos, Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.UnitType.Cm), new Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.Unit(pos, Telerik.Reporting.Drawing.UnitType.Cm));

}

but I now get the same error as in post from yesterday:
 = location(Fields.LogoPosition) cannot be parsed as a unit because it does not contain numeric values. examples of valid unit strings are 1pt and .5in.

I try to call the method from the Location property of the PictureBox.
Can you let me know why it is still not working.

Thanks again
Kind regards

Wayne

Where are you using this expression? I have a feeling that you are trying to set it directly to the Location property. If that is the case, you should use Bindings to bind the Location property, not directly assign this expression string to it. 
See: http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/expressions-bindings.html
