    I am really fighting objects on my report in that when I preview them, the fields move on me.

    Background: I have a 17 individual SQL queries unioned together (dont ask, it is how I have to do it do to a limitation imposed by our software not Telerik).

    a. I have a table on the report that is filtered to return 5 records only. (table A)

    b. beneath the table, I have a text field

    c. Beneath the text field is list control with a field in it (filtered to pull just one record only) (list B)

    d. to the right of Table A, I have another table that is filtered to return 10 records only (table C)


    The result when previewing the report is that table A displays properly its 5 records. Table C displays properly with its 10 records. Label (point b above) displays just below table A as I designed it.

    Now here is the issue. List B is below the label but it moved way down the page to start just below the end of the rows in Table C


    Basically I have a bunch of tables, text fields as labels/titles all over this report and as I add items to the report, they seem to attaching themselves to other objects on the reports.

    Is there a way to see what they are attached to and/or tell it to stop doing that and just go where I put the field.

    I have read the document online a few times and I just can't figure this out. Any help would be great.

    Hello Brian,

    This behavior is expected for the report items. If no rules for keeping the items together are specified the report item will push the content below when it grows vertically - Design Considerations for Report Item Layout.

    To keep the items together you can add a Panel to the report and place the Table and Textbox inside it. By default, Panel item's KeepTogether property is set to True which will force the children to stay together.

    Check the attached report demonstrating this approach. If your scenario is different, please attach a sample report in a support ticket so we can give you further suggestions.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    I was not aware that I could put a table within a panel. I believe I may have been trying to put a table in a List object (I get a red fill in the list control if I try to do that so I suspect that is not allowed).

    I will try and update on the findings.
