We are looking at purchasing Aspose.Words for Reporting Services (SSRS). We are already using Aspose Slides for Reporting Services.
Can you please provide more detail on how to render a report in Flow Layout vs Positioned Layout . Can we produce an example of either / both formats directly from the development environment ( Visual Studio 2017) or does the rdl need to be deployed to a ssrs server first
Can you please provides a response for each question below. If the answer is different using Flow Layout vs Positioned Layout then please clarify.
Main Question 1
I note that Aspose Words supports headers and footers; however we have a requirement that the page footer be different on the initial page / final page, vs the remainder of the document. The report will have a cover page / summarise page, with different content. The standard renderer to a docx file ( from the Server) doesn’t support this , and only provides one header/footer used throughout the rendered document.
If your product does support this , the please provide details on how it should be implemented/code and if there are any limitations.
Detail Question 1.a
If we code a textbox located in the page header/Footer using the following code, will it be rendered correctly in word docx
=iif(Globals!OverallPageNumber=1,"Header Page text"
,iif(Globals!OverallPageNumber=Globals!OverallTotalPages,"Final Page Text"
,"Main report Text"))
Detail Question 1.b
If we place 3 rectangles on top of each other , and then use the code simular to the below to show/hide ach rectangle based upon the rectangle’s visibility property, will the appropriate rectangle be displayed
