Indicator properties: Do not grow

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have a smiley indicator. Ido not want this indicator to grow. This indicator is one of the columns of a table.. when the height of that row increases, the indicator get stretched spoiling the whole look on the table. How do i set it to not to grow?

    Thanks,

    I am not sure why your user do not like this workaround, actually, lay a rectangle in the text box, which will prevent indicator's automatically growth, this works very well in my local environment, do you have other drawback using this workaround? If you really don't want to use this workaround, I would recommend you use Image control, you should firstly prepare three different images, then show the specific image based on the value condition, because image will not increase automatically as well.

    Thanks,

  • Sorry, it's impossible in SSRS. Embedded chart will always auto stretch base on its container.

  • Have you tried placing the indicator inside a rectangle within your table cell?
