Table inside a Grid (pagination problem) [message #840510] Tue, 10 April 2012 07:10 Go to next message

Hi all,

I've built a Grid with for example 20 x 15 cells, which exactly fits into a single page. Now I put a Table (or another Grid, doesn't matter) inside one Cell, which contains a lot of data.

When I run and render this design via API, I get the following result (see attachment), which is obviously wrong, because every two pages there is just a tiny piece of the Cell (therefore I painted it green, to show it's still the same Cell).

When I render the design via the BIRT Eclise Plugin instead, it shows the right solution in the "Preview"-Window and even when exporting it there to PDF.

Any suggestions? Am I missing some "CSS"-like Statements? I really don't know where the difference is.

Thanks for your help!
- Chris

Can you post the design you used? What version of BIRT are you using?

Hi Jason,

I am using BIRT 3.7.2 and I am generating the reports via API. I uploaded the design now - it's just other content than in the PDF above, but it's still the same problem.

When I open the (generated) design in the BIRT-Eclipse-Plugin, everything looks ok. If I render the (generated) design through my application, I get the PDF above as a result. (I am using a seperated Run and Render Task)

Thanks for your help! Smile

Chris,

If you preview with the webviewer and then export to pdf do you get the
same issue? I do. This is equivalent to using the api for separate run
and render tasks.

Jason,

yes, I indeed get the same issue. So is the answer to use the combined IRunAndRenderTask? If yes, how should I do pagination in my reports anyway?

Thanks for your help!

Chris,

I removed the pixel setting on the grid row and just set the height and
width for the whole grid and I get only three pages. I am not certain
this is what you want though. Take a look at the report.

Jason,

Thank you so much sir - that did the trick!
Indeed you even may remove the height-property.

Thanks for your time, I really appreciate this.
