Report Elements With Dynamic Heights Overlap Other Elements

If you have overlapping elements in your report whenever you use the dynamic-height style property, or if you'd like to create proper table rows so that elements of the second row get pushed down by the expanding content of the first row, then follow the directions below to create a two-row details band.

  1. Select your Details band in the Structure pane, then go to the Style pane and change the value of layout to block.
  2. Right-click the Details band, then select band from the Add Element context menu.
  3. Move or add the elements for the first row into the band you just created.
  4. Add another band, then move or copy all elements for the second row into the second band.
When your first row elements expand, your second row elements will be pushed down. Repeat this process as necessary for multiple rows.
