How to: Add, Hide, and Remove Page Headers and Footers (Visual Studio Report Designer)

You can add headers and footers to a report and then specify properties to determine whether they appear on the first or last page.

To add a page header or footer

  1. Open a client report definition (.rdlc) file in graphical design mode.

  2. On the Report menu, click Page Header or Page Footer. Page Header and Page Footer are toggle items on the Report menu. When enabled, a Page Header or Page Footer section appears on the design surface.

    Alternatively, right-click in the empty area outside of the design surface, and then click Page Header or Page Footer.

  3. Drag any of the following items from the Toolbox to the Page Header or Page Footer area:

    • Textbox

    • Line

    • Rectangle

    • Image

  4. Set properties on the Page Header or Page Footer to add borders, background images or colors, adjust width, or suppress headers or footers on the first page. To set these properties, right-click the Page Header or Page Footer area and select Properties.

To remove a page header or footer

  1. Open a report in Layout view.

  2. On the Report menu, click Page Header or Page Footer to remove it from the report.

    Alternatively, right-click in the empty area outside of the design surface, and then click Page Header or Page Footer.

    NoteNote

    When you remove a page header or footer, you delete it from the report. Any items that you previously added to the page header or footer will not reappear if you subsequently add them again.

To hide a page header or footer on the first or last page

  1. In Layout view, click the page header or page footer.

  2. In the Properties window, for the PrintonFirstPage or PrintonLastPage property, select False.
