A rectangle around subreport brings in extra whitespace at the bottom of the detail band


Recommended Posts

I want to surround a subreport with a rounded rectangle, the jrxml source of detail band is shown below:


<band height="6" splitType="Stretch">

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.height" value="pixel"/>

<rectangle radius="10">

<reportElement key="" stretchType="RelativeToTallestObject" x="0" y="0" width="565" height="5" isPrintWhenDetailOverflows="true" uuid="313268d9-3fb3-444c-922b-47c967b643e0">

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.x" value="pixel"/>

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.y" value="pixel"/>

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.height" value="pixel"/>


<graphicElement fill="Solid">

<pen lineWidth="1.0" lineStyle="Solid" lineColor="#652D86"/>




<reportElement mode="Transparent" x="0" y="0" width="554" height="5" isRemoveLineWhenBlank="true" isPrintWhenDetailOverflows="true" uuid="37df43d6-fb57-4ff1-97cb-6389f9bda634">

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.y" value="pixel"/>

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.height" value="pixel"/>

<property name="com.jaspersoft.studio.unit.width" value="pixel"/>



<subreportParameter name="ORI_ACCT_ID">







and here is the design:


The problem is , there's always extra withespace at the bottom of detail band when it overflows into next page, as you can see here:


How can I remove the whitespace?

Have you already tried to remove the deprecated StretchingType "RelativeToTallestObject" and replace it with the "newer" ones "ContainerHeight" or perhaps to build an element group for rectangle and subreport and use the stretching type "ElementGroupHeight"  instead?

In former JasperReports version I always used lines to create surrounding rectangles because of this "strange" behaviour" when pages break. But unfortunately this won't work with "nicer" looking rounded rectangles.
