As the subject states i would like to create tables without borders in my pptx but no matter which settings i use for the borders in the Report Designer they always end up being black and 1pt thick.

Examples of different settings i tried out:

  • Border type None

  • Border color to white
  • ...

Hi Glenn,

You can remove the table borders by using ConditionalFormatting. Please, follow the steps below:

1. Mark all of the textboxes in the table;

2. From Properties, go to the CondotionalFormatting.

3. Set the Filter as follows:

Expression: =Rendereding.Format.Name

Operator: =

Value: ="PPTX"

4. Go to Style -> Edges -> set Width to be 0:

I also attached a sample report that demonstrates the approach.

Hi Neli,

Thanks for the quick reply. This solution does not seem to work for us.

If I set the Style -> Edges -> Width to be 0 this is the result in PDF:

In PPTX the table still looks like this:

I attached the code for this table that gets created in the ***.designer.cs file in case that could help you in reproducing the problem.

Hi Glen, 

Thank you for the provided code of the table. I need to know if somewhere you have set the ConditionalFormatting property of the table cells. In it, you will check the name of the Rendering Format and set the styling.

Hi Neli,

Thanks for the quick reply. Here is an image of our settings at the moment. The result is the same as in the previous comment.

Kind regards Glenn

Hi Glen, 

Is it possible to send me the whole report with some sample data, so I can test it on my end?

Hi Neli,

 

I tried my best to figure out a way to send you some sample data and the whole report but could not figure one out.
Is it maybe possible to set up an online meeting so you can watch along on my computer and we can hopefully figure out together what i am doing wrong.

Kind regards,

Glenn

Hi Glen,

Our Remote Web sessions and Phone call sessions are reserved for our DevCraft Ultimate customers - check our Support Plans page. Maybe you can consider upgrading your plan?

Could you please share what issues you have faced with sending us the report? Did you get any errors/warnings while trying to attach the files to your reply? We would like to hear any feedback you may have so that we can improve this in the future.

I imagine you may have had issues with sending the files because of a sizing issue. Try attaching only the .CS, .DESIGNER.CS and .RESX files for the report. You may also export a very small subset of the data to CSV and attach it as a CSV file or put it inside the report through a CsvDataSource.

If you are unable to send even those files, create a ticket thread and I will provide you with an alternative solution for sending me the whole project through our SFTP server.
