Allow a Text Box to Grow or Shrink (Report Builder and SSRS)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

In a Reporting Services paginated report, text boxes aren't just the stand-alone boxes on the report design surface. Every cell in a table or matrix (a tablix data region) also contains a text box, which can be formatted in the same way as stand-alone text boxes.By default , text boxes are a fixed size. You can set options that let a text box expand or shrink based on its contents. These options correspond to the CanGrow or CanShrink properties in the Properties pane.

  1. Right-click the text box and click Text Box Properties.

  2. Click the General tab.

    • To allow the text box to expand vertically based on its contents, select Allow height to increase.

    • To allow the text box to shrink based on its contents, select Allow height to decrease.
