producing a consistent invoice layout using an rdlc report RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am sure this must have been asked a thousand times but I have done many searches and cannot find what I am after.

    I am using a local RDLC report in a winforms application to produce an incvoice.
    It works OK but, for aesthetic reasons, I would like to make it so that the table in body of the report is always the same height regardless of the number of lines in the dataset.
    I have found an example where someone cleverly added extra blank lines to the dataset after the fill but this will not work in my case as the rowheight may vary depending on the data.
    The invoice lines actually contain user entered text from a rich text box so could have multiple line feeds in also.

    How can I control the table height so that it is always 7cm in height regardless of the number of rows or data?

    Any help greatly appreciated.
