Absolutely page-bottom alignment on "report footer": Impossible?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Relative newb to SSRS here, but the answer to this question evades me; answers and insight are appreciated.

Report in question is an invoice form. It requires an absolutely bottom-of-page aligned footer that has databound elements.

This is so that whatever page that footer finally appears on will print in such a way that the address will align in a windowed envelope.

Ironically, Books Online gives this exact scenario in explaining headers and footers in SSRS, but they cleverly don't explain how an absolutely bottom-of-page-aligned and data-bound footer can be made to happen. Headers at absolute page top is obviously no problem. Footers at page bottom, not so much.

So, this is not a "page footer"--page footers are employed in the body. Also this footer is databound, so a page footer as it's known in SSRS is out the window anyway.

Most of the time this will print on a single page, but if it breaks to multiple pages, that footer needs to go all the way to the absolute bottom.

I grasp that the "report footer" for SSRS is just what appears at the end of any repeating controls that you've implemented in your body. Because SSRS uses this kind of repeating-control based idiom rather than a section-based idiom as Crystal does, this kind of (what I would consider very basic) positioning control is looking fairly impos

How to make browser scroll to the bottom of page


Hi All,

  How to use asp.net C# to scroll to the bottom on page on post back or programmatically decision? 

RDLC - blank space at the bottom of the page

 We have designed RDLC having tables and binding dynamic data to the tables, so that we can export it to PDF.  While binding the data to the table,  if the cell content which we are binding to the table row is large and doesn't have enough space to fit in the page, then the table row is moved to next page and because of this we are able to see blank space at the bottom of the previous page. For example, if there is a table in a page with 3 rows, if the 3rd row is huge and cannot fit into the the same page with other rows; the 3rd row is moved to the 2nd page.  There is huge space after the first 2 rows in the first page because of this. ive tried resizing the details section but it didn work. Any other solution?

Does anyone has idea on how to have the footer  always at the bottom of the page using table ?My code is as below:Cssbody { margin-top:0; margin-left:0; margin-right:0; margin-bottom:0; width :100%; } .SiteHeader { background-color:#292929; My html code is as below:<form id="form1" runat="server"> <div> <table border ="2" width ="100%" cellspacing ="0" cellpadding="0" > <tr Class="SiteHeader" height="113px"> <td valign="middle" align="center" colspan="2"> <%-- <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/top.jpg" />--%> </td> </tr> <tr bgcolor="red" > <td align="right" colspan="2">

GridView go to top of page when page is changed using bottom pager


I have a grid view where the user can change pages at either the top or the bottom of the grid view. 

I want the view to go back to the top whenever a user changes the page, whether they are changing from the top or the bottom.  I've tried using anchors and javascript to achieve this but it does not work.  The javascript is executed and the user is taken to the top of the gridview, this can be seen by placing an alert after the javascript to change the view.  But the last thing that happens on the page change is that the window is returned to it's previous position (the bottom of the page).  Is there any way of doing this?

Display image on the bottom of last page


In our current project we decided to use MS Reporting Services to display reports and export to PDF.
After solving many problems (btw. terrible product, who invented that data item can not be used in page header???) one left:
client requirement is to put image (bank transfer form screen - about 10 cm height) on the bottom of last page - reporting services don't have 'report footer' - how can I achive this? There is a way to dynamic (code?) change page footer height and show image only in last page 'anchored' to bottom?

I have created a footer in my master page however, the content is overlapping the footer. I have below both the Mater Page and the Solutions web page so that someone can assist me.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

I have 2 web pages. First page has a textbox and a button control.

when I enter test and click on the button , system goes to the second page. And in the second page I want to access the Textbox in the first page. When I try to do this I get the following error.

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Following is my code :

Dim txt As New TextBox

' Find the server name on the previous page
txt = CType(Page.PreviousPage.FindControl("TextBox2"), TextBox)
If Not IsNothing(txt) Then
Response.Write("[Name Not available]")

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.
