Table Column Properties

A table can contain four types of columns: Common Column, Detail Column, Group Column, and Summary Column, and Designer displays the same set of properties for all the columns. This topic describes the properties of a Table Column object.

Designer provides some properties only when you use the object in certain report types. You can get details from the Available For column in the property table.

Property Name Available For Description
General
Class Type Query Page Report Shows the class type of the object. This property is read only.
Instance Name Query Page Report Shows the instance name of the object. This property is read only.
Others
Auto Fit Page Report, Web Report, Library Component Specifies whether to adjust the width of the object according to its content.

Data type: Boolean

Note icon If you set the property to "true", Designer adjusts the width of the object only when the Position property of the field/label in this object is "static" or "relative"; if the Position property of the field/label is "absolute", its Auto Fit property should be "true".

  • If a table contains a merged cell that is across columns and there are absolutely positioned objects in the cell, when you exclude a column which is not the last column for this merged cell from the report output, Designer recalculates the X coordinates of those objects that are in the excluded column and tries to display them in the output if space allows; however, this may result in that some objects overlap in their new position in the output.
  • Because one cell in Excel can only contain one value, if you exclude a table column from the Excel output, Designer is not able to display the value of a data field which is originally in the excluded column in the Excel output if the new position of the field is in a cell that already contains a value, even when the field satisfies the conditions as described above.
