Y-Size (Y-Size)

The Y-Size property gives the box a fixed height.

To preserve the aspect ratio of an image, set the value of either Y-Size or X-Size, allowing Report Writer to calculate the corresponding value. If you set both properties, the resulting image appears distorted.

Do not set a value for this property in WordWrapBoxes, because the element should typically grow based on its content.

Note:

If the parent object is a propagating container and the child object does not fit in the remaining space for the parent object, the rest variable for the Y-Size property yields the same value as max (the child expands to the maximum extent of the parent). This forces the parent object to propagate and avoids overfullness.

Tip:

If you want a box to have the same height as its parent, set Y-Size to max. See Modify the sizing policy of containers.

Tip:

To ensure that part of the report starts on an odd page, set Y-Size to oddPhysicalPage()?0:max. See Start on an odd or even page.

Type: Measure of distance.

Default value: Calculated after the node has completed child alignment. The value is set to the smallest possible value that encloses all children without clipping any of them.

You can find the Y-Size property in the Geometry category of the Properties view.
