Dynamically stretch item to size of band?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm currently designing a report with a table. This report is replacing another from a different platform, and as such must be identical.

I have a label that sits at the left of my table that I need to stretch to the size of the report, like this:

[side Label] [Data Item] [Data Item]

[side Label] [Data Item] [Data Item]

[side Label] [Data Item] [Data Item]
What I ideally need is for the 'side label' to be one continous cell, while the others remain as individuals. Is there any good way to approach this? I tried changing some stretch settings but I'm not too familiar with Jasper and cannot get it to work in the way I'd like.


Many Thanks

Hi C-Box

It's not an actual table, it's text fields and labels. I've found a sort of solution wherein I overlay the static text field in the main report over the subreport where it should appear, this works in this circumstance as I know what the size will be (4 records), but do you know if there's a better approach (or if it's even possible to do without an actual table element)?


Many thanks,
