Reporting - Layout Features Shrink and Grow

To be able to run the Document Viewer, the client web browser must support HTML5.

This demo illustrates how to create a report with a layout consisting of controls with the non-fixed height.

To create a report with a layout consisting of controls with the non-fixed height, which depends on their contents populated at runtime, use the Shrink and Grow feature. This feature is implemented via the XRControl.CanShrink and XRControl.CanGrow properties (note, that growing and shrinking is possible only for the XRLabel, XRTableCell and XRRichText controls).

The report created in this example represents a list of employees from the Northwind database and illustrates how to make a list of items of different height using the Shrink and Grow feature.
