The Page Break control's sole purpose is to insert a page delimiter at any point within a report.

This control is visually represented by a short line, attached to the report's left margin, as shown in the following image.

The Page Break control is useful when you need to insert a page break between controls within a band - for example, to divide subreports, so that the second subreport starts printing on a new page. Another example of the Page Break's use can be found in the following tutorial: Limit the Number of Records per Page.


Note that when you need a page break before or after printing a certain band, you may set its Page Break property to Before the Band or After the Band, instead of using the Page Break control.

In the Property Grid, the Page Break control's properties are divided into the following groups.
