    Default Position with dynamic height fields

    Hello all,

    I have to put a field just below a field with dynamic height and I don't know how to do it. I should set the new field Y position relative to the dynamic height field end.

    There's any way to do it?


    Thanks

    yes, using a block-band. A block-band behaves like a paragraph or DIV in HTML, so its direct childs span the whole width and are positioned below each other. If a child expands, it pushes all subsequent childs down, so that there are no overlaps.

    (Example using the simple-xml; works similiar in all other XML formats and the report-designer)
    <band layout="block">
    <band>
    .. your fields for the first row here ...
    </band>
    <band>
    .. your fields for the second row here ...
    </band>
    </band>

    Thank you very much Taqua, I had a lot of troubles with this, I had to create new groups just for implementing this behaviour. Really thanks
