Odd problem with characters ("e:") appearing next to Image in report... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm hoping someone has some hints with this issue...

     

    We have a standard subreport that we put at the top of the first page of all our reports.

     

    Within that subreport there's an image field.

     

    We populate the image from a DB field if the DB field has valid data in it, otherwise we use a default image.

     

    Everything works fine except that when/if we pull the image from the DB and display it, we end up with extraneous characters ("e:") just to the right of the image in the rendered report.

     

    The way the "e:" is rendered it is just under the right edge of the image.

     

    We've searched the code numerous times and cannot find anyplace that the characters could be coming from.

     

    We've checked the VS Document Outline and there's no other fields that could be (or at least ought to be) contributing the stray characters.

     

    We've taken the subreport itself apart in all imaginable ways...

     

    We've looked at the report file in XML editors and text editors...

     

    We checked out the report file and deleted report controls on it one by one until there's no controls left on the report, yet we find nothing that ought to be contributing the stray characters...

     

    We've done exhaustive text searches for "e:" (using VS's Find and also Findstr in the appropriate code trees) and found nothing that looks even remotely related.

     

    Any thoughts on where the extraneous chars might be coming from?

     

    It's obviously significant that this only happens when the image is populated from the DB, but we've reviewed, pulled apart, and walked through that code until we're cross-eyed and if the problem is in our code, we're just not seeing it...

  • Never mind, we found it and it was operator error. Siggghhhhh...

     

    Like I said, we'd looked this over until we were crosseyed, which apparently caused all of us to miss it...
