stretch does not work for JRDesignStaticText

2006-04-19 02:16

I programmatically create a report and i can't know the length of the data that will be displayed. For the report data, i use JRDesignTextField; after i call textField.setStretchWithOverflow(true); and textField.setStretchType(JRDesignTextField.STRETCH_TYPE_RELATIVE_TO_BAND_HEIGHT); the cells are stretched vertically which is fine. If i don't call this methods the data is truncated to the cell size.


I also need this behavior for the header columns which i create using JRDesignStaticText. Although i can call the method colName.setStretchType(JRDesignStaticText.STRETCH_TYPE_RELATIVE_TO_BAND_HEIGHT); it doesn't have any effect. Probably because there is no equivalent method for setStretchWithOverflow(true)...


Is there any way to configure the report design or the exporter so the column header names will not be truncated ?

Why dont you use JRDesignTextField for your column headers ? JRDesignStaticText does not have a method setStretchWithOverflow.

I didn't know that JRDesignTextField can contain just some plain text. This solution works.


Thanks for the suggestion !
