Changing the Visibility of a Band in a Report

A Report band can be set to visible or invisible. Invisible bands will not be printed or exported to output.

For example, you can make a band invisible to temporarily omit data from the Report output without removing the content from the Designer. This is useful if you have not finished refining the contents of a band but still want to generate a Report, or if a band is temporarily irrelevant to Report recipients.

To change the visibility of bands:

  1. In the Report Manager, right-click a Report, and then select Design Report.
  2. Select the band you want to make visible or invisible.
  3. In the Property Grid, locate the Visible property under Behavior in the Property Grid.
  4. Select Yes to make the band visible; select No to make it invisible.
