  • 2 minutes to read

All Controls

You can clone report controls. Hold the CTRL key and select a control, then move the mouse to the new control’s location. That new control has the same settings as the initial control.


You can also copy report controls to the clipboard using CTRL + C or the Copy command and then paste these controls to a new container or band.

  • The original control positions are preserved when you use the CTRL + V hotkey or the Paste toolbar command to insert controls.

    Copy Controls with Ctrl-V

    The pasted controls are repositioned by an offset of 10 units on both axes if another control already occupies the target position.

  • When you use the Paste context menu item, controls are inserted at the position where you invoked the context menu.

    Copy Controls with Paste Commnand


You can use the Report Gallery to copy and paste controls, and to also move controls to another report.

Table Elements

You cannot copy and paste an individual table cell or table row. Instead, you must select the entire XRTable control, and then copy and paste it.

You can select the entire table on the design surface or in the Report Explorer window. Alternatively, you can click a single table cell and navigate to the parent container using the Esc key.
