Reports have no line drawing capability. Static lines can be placed on the report, but end points cannot be set via function. The size of textboxes and other objects cannot be set via function. This should be possible and it should be possible to resize
and match objects dynamically. For instance if a textbox grows, it should be possible to resize lines or other textboxes to match.

I am having the same exact problem. I found something called visual basic power packs but it is exactly what it sounds like it is and its for Visual Basic not for ASP.net pages. I want to make a report look nicer and I cant seem to find anything stating
that it can be done.

You can elongate borders on text boxes and do creative stuff with that. With trial and error much is possible. Also try iTextNet. In future I plan on using that instead of the report designer in ASP.NET.

Ok thanks. I added a hr tag to it and called it a wrap for now with that part.
