      Which type of ActiveReports (Section Reports, RDL Reports or Page Reports) are you looking at for this functionality. There is a Container control with similar behavior that you may want to have a look at. Let us know in case there are functionality that you need which is not met by the Container report item.

    • Sorting on multiple columns

      When designing reports using the web based report designer, it would be helpful if tables can be sorted on multiple columns - e.g. by surname and then forename

      • Section Keep Together

        It would be great to be able to set a section such as the detail section, or a grouping to be kept together on the same page. This is helpful in the case where a section renders over multiple lines. For example, if a detail section spans 3 lines, it would not print at the bottom of the page unless the entire detail section fits. If it doesn't fit, it would go to the top of the next page. The same would hold for a grouping: if the whole grouping (including sub-groups and details) won't fit at the bottom of…

        • Type in drop-down selection

          My use case is that I have a particularly long list of options when I am specifying parameters for a particular report, and I want to be able to type in the first few letters of the word and have Active Reports bring up the records in the list that begin with those letters.

          e.g. I am getting prompted to select the name of a particular person from a list of salesmen for a performance report. There are 100 salesmen in my company. Currently I have to scroll through the entire list to find John Doe, but it would be…

            Makes perfect sense I think we should add it. We’ll try to get this on the roadmap later this year.
