Property Value

Type Default Description
ReportUnit HundredthsOfAnInch

A ReportUnit enumeration value.


The ReportUnit property specifies the units of measurement (Imperial or Metric) that are used to express values of such properties as XRControl.SizeF and Band.LocationF.

Only the XRControl.BorderWidth property value is expressed in ReportUnit.Pixels.

For a complete list of properties affected by this option, see the Report Units of Measurement topic.


You can set the ReportUnit property globally, so that all the newly created reports have this property set to the required value. For this purpose, use the Report Designer Options dialog available within the XtraReports menu.

When setting ReportUnit.TenthsOfAMillimeter as report units globally, the empty and data-based reports newly created via the Report Wizard will have the XtraReport.PaperKind property set to PaperKind.A4. Otherwise, PaperKind.Letter is set by default.
