Table design issues with merged cells in rdlc report RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a rdlc report in which I have a table with 6 columns. Of these 6 columns, the visiblity of the 2nd and 4th column are toggled. i.e. if 2nd column is visible, 4th is not visible and vice versa. The report displayed properly with these settings.
    Then a new row was added to the table. All the cells in this row were merged and a rectangle added to this row. Then a few textboxes were added to this rectange. Now when this report is run, the display of the table is disturbed. An empty column in shown before the last column and the header of the last column also appears displaced.
    After a few permutations, I zeroed in the actual problem.
    If you have a table with a row with merged cells and a rectangle in the merged cells, then hiding any column does not disturb the display. But if you add a textbox to the rectangle, the display of the table is disturbed as mentioned above.

    Note, the reports are run in local mode
    Is there any hotfix available for this issue ?

  • Though setting the hidden property to True should be sufficient to hide a column, in the case mentioned above it disturbs the display of the report since blank space is shown in place of the column.
    Along with setting the hidden to true you also need to set the width of the column to 0.0 inches dynamically to completely obliterate the column from view.
