Y-Size (Y-Size)

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

In the Properties view, this property is the Y-Size property in the Geometry category.

Note: 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.

Type: Numeric. The default value is calculated after the node has completed its child alignment. The value is set to the smallest possible value that encloses all children without clipping any of them.

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.
