Printing RDLC report on paper roll (dynamic report's height) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    our kiosk SW prints receipts that have dynamic heights. Paper source is "endless" paper-roll. How to render reports to have needed height?

    I am new to RDLC reports. Formerly, I used ActiveReports where solution was to run (render) report this way:

    - 1st render

    - calculate the reports height

    - set report's paper's height to calculated height

    - 2nd render with custom-height paper

    How to do something like this in RDLC reports? I know I can set paper height directly to RDLC (XML) file, but how to calculate real report's height? It is logical that this value can be obtained only after report is generated (rendered).

    Thank you
