}

Remarks

Font settings off the UltraGridOverride.SummaryValueAppearance off the Override object are used to calculate the necessary height of the summary footer and the summary values. So if you are planning on modifying the size of font for individual SummarySettings or SummaryValue objects, make sure that a font just as big is assigned to SummaryValueAppearance off the Override object for the band or the layout.

Note: This appearance is not applied to summaries displayed in group by rows. For that use the GroupBySummaryValueAppearance.
