|I've been asked this a couple of times so I thought I
would put a tip on how I achieved it. In one of the PBDelta reports I
have an autosize height row which has a vertical line running down the
edges to make a nice square look on the report. This line gets
automatically resized depending on the size of the row.
A few people have written to me explaining that when they query the
row height attribute of the datawindow they only get back the height of
the row as defined in the painter. However if you would like to get the
size of the row dynamically resized by the autosize height you need to
call a function called rowheight(). This function returns the height of
the row after it has been autosized.
In my case for the PBDelta report I just put a call to this function
into the Y2 attribute of the vertical line. If you need to access this
attribute outside of the datawindow then you can always use a hidden
computed field on the row and access the result of that.
One thing to note, I have seen some peculiar behavior with the
vertical line technique in that after printing the report all the
vertical lines resize to the widest row, but the report actually prints
