Report Band Properties Dialog Box (Report Builder)

Visual Studio 2005

Makes it possible for you to set properties and options for a Band in a report or label page layout in the Report Designer or Label Designer.

This dialog box appears when you choose Properties from the context menu of a report band separator, when you double-click on a report band separator, or when you double-click on the band name in the Edit Bands Dialog Box.

NoteNote

This dialog box is only displayed if the _REPORTBUILDER system variable is set to the default Report Builder application. If it is empty, or has been set to a third-party report builder, the native Visual FoxPro dialog box (or a third-party dialog box) may appear. For more information, see _REPORTBUILDER System Variable.

The following table lists each of the tabs that exist in the Report Band Properties dialog box. Some tabs may only be present for specific types of bands.

NoteNote

When modifying the report or label in protected mode, some or all tabs might not be available as specified by protection mode settings.
