hi guys,

here is my problem:
i have a Master report with some fields on it, and a couple of subreports.
they are all aligned to the right in design time as shown in "report in designer" attached picture.
(manually aligned with the designer grid lines)
at runtime all of the subreports are a little intended to the right of the fields as you can see in the second attached
picture "subreport margin problem2" (in the picture - 1 and 3 are subreports. 2 and 4 are fields on the Master report)

i tried making the subreports a little wider to the right - it didn't help.

i'm working with the latest internal build of reporting (4.1.10.729). radcontrols for wpf version: 2010.2.714.35
on visual studio 2008

any suggestions?

thanks.

Hi Lior ef,

When a report is embedded in another report, its width depends not on the size of the hosting Subreport item but on its width set through the Telerik.Reporting.Report.Width property.

On the other hand, when it is a top-level report its width depends on the Width property, PageSettings and the format the report is rendered into. For more information please see Design Considerations for Report Rendering.

So in your case try increasing the nested reports' widths instead of the Subreport items. Subreport items server as placeholders only and defines the location where the inner report will appear while the size depends entirely on the nested report.

All the best,

hi Svetoslav,

thanks for the reply.
according to what you are telling me, i should manually enlarge the subreport width in runtime?
can't i configure something at design time to do that? it looks to me as if this is a common functionality needed from a subreport,
i really think that if i design a subreport the user doesn't need to see any visual changes, so why does the subreport gets a different width from the subreport item container?

besides that, if the solution is really changing the width at runtime - how do i do that?
i tried writing this code at the c'tor of the master report:
SubreportItemContainer.Width = this.Width;
SubreportItemContainer.Report.Width = this.Width;
"this" is the Master report.

it didn't work.

thanks in advance.

Hi Lior ef,

My colleague referred to Telerik.Reporting.Report.Width property which is a definition property and not processing one, meaning you should alter the width through the report designer the same way you have tried to do by increasing the subreport item width.
Also, you've misunderstood the previous explanation - the subreport item is a container only and it accommodates its child (in this case a report). The width/height of the subreport item is irrelevant, even if you set it to Width 1px and Height 1px, it would still stretch to the height and width of the actual report that is hosted in the subreport item.

Sincerely yours,
Steve
