    Default Hide band globally ??

    Hi everyone,

    Is there any global property which allows us to hide a specific band (Eg: Report header, page header etc) on all reports?

    Not exactly, but you can make that work with a few tricks:

    Implement a Report-Preprocessor, register it during the reporting engine's boot process and make sure you declare it as automatically active. An auto-active report-preprocessor will be automatically added to all reports and then has the chance to (1) see all parameters and settings of that report and (2) to modify the report as it likes (except the datasources of the master-report or parameters).

    You will have to write code, but luckily this is already well covered and even documented in the new SDK:
