    Just looking for some help with C1 FlexReports for UWP. We’ve noticed that the watermarks dont appear above subreports. Does anyone have a work around or is this in the roadmap to be fixed?

    We are not able to replicate the issue with the attached report. Could you please either modify the attached report or provide your own stripped-down report so that we can try to reproduce the same behavior at our end and assist you further accordingly.​​

    So Im adding the watermark in code. I setup the report much like I would have it in my project. The text covered the watermark as best I could tell.

    This is the code I’m using to load the watermark on the report.

    private void ReportViewer_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


    var reportViewer = (C1FlexViewer)sender;

    reportViewer.ZoomMode = FlexViewerZoomMode.WholePage;

    var Report = new C1FlexReport();

    var asm = GetType().GetTypeInfo().Assembly;

    using (var stream = asm.GetManifestResourceStream(“TestWatermarkProject.Assets.test.flxr”))


    Report.Load(stream, “Report 1”);


    Report.Watermark.Font.Size = 42;

    Report.Watermark.Text = “Unapproved” + System.Environment.NewLine + “Release to Public”;

    Report.Watermark.Visibility = WatermarkVisibility.AllPages;

    Report.Watermark.Opacity = 0.2;

            reportViewer.DocumentSource = null;
            reportViewer.DocumentSource = Report;

    I am able to reproduce the issue. I have escalated the issue to the development team (465381) and will inform you once I get any updates from them.

    A watermark is invisible because the background color of the Report2 detail section is solid black. Make is transparent to see a watermark. I attached the fixed Test1.flxr for the demo.
