SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008) or a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services (SSRS 2008 R2) report that has many items, you embed a Chart control into a Tablix data region of the report.
  • You configure an expression in the DynamicHeight property and in the DynamicWidth property of the Chart control.

    Note You notice that the height and the width of the charts in the Chart control increases or decreases according to the expression.
  • You export or print the report from the report designer or from the report manager.
In this scenario, blank spaces between some items are generated unexpectedly.

Note This issue occurs after you apply the hotfix that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article:
981928 FIX: The DynamicHeight property and the DynamicWidth property for a Chart control inside a tablix data region are not applied correctly for all the charts in SSRS 2008 or SSRS 2008 R2

CAUSE

This issue occurs because charts rasterize incorrectly in browsers. The HTMLRenderer class writes the width and height as a shared style. Therefore, the charts have different sizes based on dynamic widths and heights.
