Section with Height property set to 0(zero) units does not display data


Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting
Version R3 2016 and later

Cause\Possible Cause(s)

A Section's Height is set to 0(zero).

Error Message

Property value is not valid.


Setting a section's Height property via binding or code to 0 or tending to 0 leads to an error after upgrading to Telerik Reporting R3 2016.


In older versions, a commonly used workaround for shrinking sections was to set the sections' Height property via binding or in code behind to 0 or tending to 0 (zero) units. We recommend changing the manually set Height to at least 1px.


As of R3 2016, sections and Panel items have a CanShrink properties that should be used instead of setting manually their Height properties.
