    Hi I am using the report viewer for the web and have noticed that the reports, when viewed on the web (using the viewer control) are not rendering the full report in portrait. It appears to be trimming off the bottom third of the report and bleeding it over to the next pages.

    So… on the viewer the page looks like it is shorter than it is, but when I print or export it, the report prints as I would expect. Also on the viewer it shows 5 pages but when printed it prints 2 (this is due to the viewer trimming the bottom of the reports off)

    If this a bug or just something I have not enabled

    See screen shot for example.

    Thanks
    Derb

    Hello Derek,

    The printed report is internally exported to PDF which is page oriented format and it is normal for the report to be paged. The output of a report rendered in different formats differs because medias are quite different. For example HTML/Excel is dedicated to displaying information on screen and the page is infinite by width and height; in contrast PDF supports physical pages and is meant not only for reading on screen but for printing.

    According to whether the format supports physical pages, we separate the export formats on two groups: page-oriented (PDF, Image (print preview), print, XPS, RTF) and non-page oriented (HTML/MHTML, Excel, CSV).

    For the page-oriented formats the content layout is on horizontal and vertical pages according the the page settings of the report, while for the rest of the formats take into considerations other characteristics of the media. More info is available in the Design Considerations for Report Rendering help section.

    How do I make the web preview show an A4 page?

    I have configured the report to be A4 with all of the correct dimensions ect and have made the HTML viewer the correct ratio for an A4 page but I am still getting the exact same problem. The render of the screen looks massively different to when it is printed. This is not good when we are writing websites for clients who expect to have what they see on the screen represent what they get on the printer.

    Hello Derek,

    This is not possible with the web report viewer due to the reasons explained in our previous post. A possible solution for your request would be to use the Silverlight Report Viewer instead, which uses the new XPS format for rendering i.e. it is page oriented. You can test exporting to XPS to see if the report looks like you expect it to.

    All the best,
