How can we improve Reporting?

Groupbox in ActiveReports 9

Hi, I would like to suggest a Groupbox Control like the Windows Forms Groupbox.
I would like to have a property visible for me to show a group of controls for certain records e another records other group of controls.

Thank you very much.

    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.

        Hi, You are right! The container controls is available only in RDL Reports and Page Reports. I am using Active Reports 9 Section Reports and this functionality is missing.

        I'd like the functionality on a section report.

        Like Ardates, I have groups of controls that I'm showing/hiding conditionally and it would save many lines of code if they could be shown/hidden as a group or as the contents of a container vs. individually.

        I concur... this would be a great addition!
