Adjustable size of textfield


Recommended Posts



I've created a simple report with a subreport.

Both reports show records and contain multiple textfields.

Their content is filled with the values of a custom programmed datasource(a JRRewindableDataSource).


Sometimes these values can be a single word, sometimes they contains a very long text.

How can I define that a textfield'height grows, depending on its content ?

Because if I foresee enough space for every possible content, I loose a lot of height to blank space.


Thanks !

That worked.


What are the differences between stretch to tallest object and stretch to band height ?


I'd like to 'color' my rows.

Now I had a colored rectangle behind my textfields.

With this stretch, the color doesn't follow.

Any tricks on how to do this ?
