    Programatically program font size based on length of data

    Is there a way to tell an rdlc what font size to use based on the length of the data in the expression?

    When did this become StackOverflow?

    If you found the solution, it's usually good form to post what the solution is. That way others can look at it and maybe suggest improvements, or 6 months from now, or a year from now, someone else looking for the same thing, they can find it.

    Good point. When in the properties of the text box, click on Fonts then on size, or font, or bold, color, effects, line spacing, italic, there is a box with and fx next to it. That is where you put the code. in my case I used =IIF(len(Trim(Fields!column1.Value) > 20, "3pt", "4pt")
