Dynamic size of Rectangles ??

2003-04-16 07:49

Hey guys !!

I have a report where the people want to have a text section with a one-line-border. No problem at the first hand - I simply draw a rectange around the textfield. But problem is, the textfield isStretchwithOverflow="true" so it changes it's size when more text is displayed. How can I link the rectangle to the textfield so that it always properly surrounds it regardless of the textfields dynamic size ??


Thanks in advance

Put the text field and the rectangle together in an

<elementGroup> tag.

Then use stretchType="RelativeToTallestObject" for

the rectangle along with isPrintWhenDetailOverflows="true".


I hope this helps.

Is there a similar technique to get all <textField>'s within a <band> to stretch if any <textField> overflows? I am getting empty cells in the CSV when a single <textField> stretches.

Sorry, there is no such similar technique for

the text elements.

It is available only for graphic elements and not text



Thank you,
