Default How to change the width of text box in a Report

Hi all,
I have problem in changing the width of a Text box in a Report.

I have created a report template with twenty dummy columns and sending the report data as parameters.
The parameters contain column title, no. of columns and column data.

Depending on no. of columns am making the remaining columns (20-no. of columns) invisible.

Here I need to make the length of these invisible columns to zero.

If any body throgh some light on this will be great favour for me.

Thanks & Regards,
Kishore Lakkimsetty

Hi Kishore,

As the column width property of textbox does not support expressions, my suggestion is to make all the columns widths to 0 initially and set the "Can Grow" property to "True".

As u have mentioned that u pass the column headings as parameter values the width of the column would be the width of the column description.

Hope the above suggesstion would help u...

Cheers,
Chakri.
