Group Footer & Main Table Summary Settings

Jan 8, 2015 at 8:05 PM
I saw on a thread where you spoke about the GroupAdded Event which looked like you would be creating a new table. Is there a way to inject HTML into this instead or is there another way to do something similar to the AddGroupHeader with HTML?
Also, if I wanted to use a property from a group in the Overall Summary Settings label, what would be the best approach to get the groups data there?

Overall Summary Settings label is not dynamic, but you can inject an arbitrary HTML data at the end of the each group this way:
events.GroupAdded(args =>
        //args.PdfDoc.Add(new Phrase("\nGroup added event."));
        /*var data = args.ColumnCellsSummaryData
                .Where(data => data.CellData.PropertyName.Equals("propertyName")
                           && data.GroupNumber == 1);*/
        var salary = args.LastOverallAggregateValueOf<Employee>(x => x.Salary);
        var table = new PdfGrid(1)
            RunDirection = (int)PdfRunDirection.LeftToRight,
            WidthPercentage = args.PageSetup.MainTablePreferences.WidthPercentage
        var htmlCell = new XmlWorkerHelper
            // the registered fonts (DefaultFonts section) should be specified here
            Html = string.Format(
                     @"<br/><span style='font-size:9pt;font-family:verdana;'>
                         <b>Group <i>added</i> event.</b>
                         Total Salary: {0}</span>", salary),
            RunDirection = PdfRunDirection.LeftToRight,
            CssFilesPath = null, // optional
            ImagesPath = null, // optional
            InlineCss = null, // optional
            DefaultFont = args.PdfFont.Fonts[1] // verdana
        htmlCell.Border = 0;
        table.SpacingBefore = args.PageSetup.MainTablePreferences.SpacingBefore;

Also, do you have any examples of merging reports without writing them out first? I looked into the .AsPdfStream, but did not quite get what I was wanting. Basically want to create multiple reports in memory and then merge them together before sending the final report in MemoryStream back.
