Subreport with backgroundpagelayer

edited December 2016 in General
Hi,

in former times one of our developers designed a strange report:
-report contains there groups
-within the second group has in its footer a subreport, configured to
be displayed at the end of the last page
- the subreport contains upto 4 columns
- a descriptive column is printed before any of the columns as it was
manually placed in the background pagelayer

Printing in 5.56 works great, but using 17.02 causes an empty page.
The empty page is caused by the backgroundlayer of the subreport, as
its printed height is twice the height of the pagelayer.

Is there an error?

At the first sight this looks like an error, but from my point of view
a background-pagelayer within a subreport does not really make sense.

    Hi Carsten,

    Have you tried using the summary band to print at the end of the last
    page rather than the group footer?

    Please create a simple example that we can run here demonstrating this
    behavior and send it to support@digital-metaphors.co in .zip format.

    Hi,
    summary band worked, but does not fit 100%.
    I will try crosstab if i manage to configure it.

    Hi Carsten,

    Set PageStyle.UsePageSpace to False.

    We added a PageStyle UsePageSpace boolean property several versions ago to
    provide more control over this. Depending on the requirements developers
    were wanting it to work both ways.
