Printing empty DBText

edited August 2016 in General

in RB5.56 an empty DBtext was not printed, i. e. now space/height was
used and all following elements were moved up.
In Rb 17.02 the emtpy DBText is printed, resulting in an empty line,
showing more distance betwen both surrounding elements

In RB 17.02 a DBMemo has the desired behaviour like a DBText in 5.56

Any Ideas?

    Hi Carsten,

    This sounds like a bug in RB 5.56 that was likely fixed in a later
    version (we do not keep records of fixes that far back :). The DBText
    component is static so it will take space whether it contains data or not.

    If you need dynamic height use a stretchable component such as DBMemo or
    you can check the value of the field before printing and toggle its
