Big empty space between fields in SSRS report

Posted on by 6,310


I have added a packingslipid barcode39 field in report. I've set the required font and font size = '56px' in VS for that field and when I deploy it and open from ax I see following big empty space between Barcode and next field below. see the image below...

I think it is because of big size of barcode font.

So what is a better way to solve this kind of issues? I can't reduce the font size as it is requirement. 

To retrieve the packingslipid barcode I have this method on table (see below) and BarCodeString field in tmp table

Barcode barcode;

barcode = Barcode::construct(BarcodeType::Code39);
barcode.string(true, _packingSlipId);

return barcode.barcodeStr();

    This barcode field will be added as a textbox. Right click on this textbox and choose Text Box Properties and unchecked option Allow height to increase.

    You can also select text box and press Altr + Enter, properties window will be opened on the right hand side. You can change property CanGrow = False of the text box.

    Try to set canGrow property to 'false' if it is 'true'
