How is possible to create a table wich contains one or more cells that have more text than a page can contain?

Steps to reproduce:
1) Open the "NorthWindReports" sample project (in PdfSamples->Tables->NorthWindReports);
2) Edit "customers.xml" and set the first tag to something VEEERY long;
3) Run the NorthWindReports program.

Result: the pdf generated has a blank page first and the first record is missing!

Any idea?

Hi Diego,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

The Sample program you find makes use of OldTable concept in PDF where column spanning is not supported. Column spanning is supported in "NewTable Model". Our Newtable model has many new features like column overflow,autofit,cell merge,column repeat,exact table position when the table spans multiple pages,etc... Please take a look at the following new table model sample which demonstrates the various features.


Here is the sample where the column text spans for more than a page.

Thanks for your answer, but the problem still exist:

Try this:
1) Open Sample_columnSpan project;

2) In Form1.cs [Line #197] change:

cell.Value = "This is the cell merged horizontaly an verticaly....[omissis];


for (int w = 0; w < 10;w++)
cell.Value += "This is the cell merged horizontaly an verticaly....[omissis];

3) Run the example.

Note that the program doesn't produce any output: it loops forever.

Best regards.
