This topic has been discussed in a thread before but due to a problem with the forum it is unaccessible now and had to be deleted. So I'll open a new thread and try to find a solution.|
I'm trying to build a report that uses dynamically created grids. All created grids use rowspan to display them more nicely (the other cells are dropped correctly).
When I export the report as html, everthing looks perfect, all grids are correct. When I use the pdf export, some grids have several mistakes (rowspan to low, cells devided etc.). I tried to export again, but the report looks exactly the same, with the same broken grid.
It appears, that the grid breaks because of a grid cell that is broken across two pages (due to long cells). I tried to avoid that by setting the PageBreakInside for the cells to "avoid", but it doesn't work.
This bug first occured in version 4.2.1 but it's still the same in 4.2.2. I reported a bug a while ago, but nothing seems to happen. This bug is critical and might force me to switch to a different report engine though I really like BIRT.
Is there any way I could fix this? Currently I use the border settings to immitate the rowspan and that works ok, but doesn't look very nice if you reach the end of the page and the cell is broken to the next page.
Any ideas? I would really appreciate any help I can get!
