Automatic resize of BIT reports

Hi,

Is there any option in the BIRT report template I can use to resize
automatically the report size when they are referenced in viewlets?

When I change the resolution the reports are not resized automatically
and some graphs are not shown completely in the viewlet dashboard...

Thanks,

ana

Usually we create two versions of the report, one for dashboards and one
for the full report. I don't think you can tell in the report whether
it's being rendered in a dashboard or not.

James, if I understand you correctly, this means I should set a report
sizing "hardcoded" when defining the report. Right?

So the viewlet won't scale its content to adapt for different potential
client resolutions? Did I understand you correctly?

Thanks,

Chemi.

Yes, that's correct. That's the way we do our current dashboard reports.
