BarWidth in Barcode

This property determines the width of the bars of the barcode.

Figure 7: BarWidth is one

Backstyle

This property will be available in property pane if you select a field control or a section from the layout pane.  Its value determines if background color  will be applicable or not.

Figure 8: Back Styles

Value Description
0-ddBKTransparent To show the background content.  This will not hide the background content by applying the BackColor.
1-ddBKNormal To apply BackColor.  This will hide background color.

You can also perform the same through the Script Editor as shown in the example below:

Object: Detail             Event: OnFormat

Code:

function OnFormat()

{

if (parseInt(rpt.section(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).dataValue)  > 1000 );

{

rpt.section(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).backStyle = 1; // Back Style Normal

}

else

{

rpt.section(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).backStyle = 0;  // BackStyle Transparent

}

}

Border

This property defines the border surrounding the labels and fields.   It can be changed through the shortcut menu or using the script editor.


Figure 9: Different kind of borders applied on controls

Caption

This property is applicable for label controls.  Its value is displayed for the selected label at report execution time.

Caption Position

This property will be there on the property pane when the page header is selected.  Value of this property determines position of page header on report.

Value Description
OnAllPHs Page header will appear on all the pages of the report.
Below RH and On all PHs following RH On the report page where report header is setup, the page header will appear below the report header.
Caption in Barcode

Figure 10: Caption on Barcode

Caption is text that is displayed along with barcode.  The caption needs to be used if Barcode is not bound with any DataField.

If the caption is too long for barcode width to adjust, then in the barcode itself the report designer can see a message.  Here the length needs to be increased so that the bars can be adjusted in the barcode area.

Figure 11: Bars in Barcode not fitting

Caption Position in Barcode

It determines the positioning of the numeric value within the barcode.  It can either be placed above (‘Above’) the barcode or at the Bottom (‘Below’) of the barcode.  There is a value which is ‘Blank’ which means even though caption is there the bars would show but caption will not be visible.

Figure 12: CaptionPosition in Barcode

Figure 13: Caption as Blank

Column Direction

This property will be available if you click on a section in the layout pane.  This property determines how Intellicus Studio should print the detail section in a multi-column report.


Figure 14: Column Direction

Value Description
0-DownAcross This will print first column from top to down and repeat the same for next column to its right. (Column-wise printing)
1-AcrossDown This will print the first row spanning across all columns followed by next row. (Row-wise printing)

When ‘DownAcross’ is selected, the printing will go to the next column after the column on the left is completely printed.

Figure 15: Report Print Directions

You can also define the same through Script Editor as shown in the example below:

Object: Detail             Event: OnFormat

Code:

function OnFormat()

{

rpt.Sections(“Detail”).columnCount = 3;

rpt.Sections(“Detail”).columnDirection = 1;}

Data Field

This property is available for a field or a group header section.  It defines the binding field and a group.  This value is set to the name of any field in the data source, or the name of a custom field added into the field’s collection.

Figure 16: Data Fields

When the DataField property is set for the group, records in the detail section will be grouped by this field.

When the DataField property is set for a field, Intellicus Studio binds the field’s data from each record in the database to the selected control. The record set data is first saved into the data value, and then passed through any (defined) output format, to be set as the control’s text.

When using XML the DataField must be set to a valid ‘Xpath’ string.

Important: The base path set by the ‘RecordSetPattern’ is used as the starting node; if a control needs to use a higher level node, use “../” to move back a node.

The DataField property can also be used to perform calculations using scripting expression by stating the property, proceeded by an ‘=’ symbol. This allows the fields to be set up to display the calculated results. Example;rpt.sections(“ghClient”).dataField= “CustomerID”;

Warning: Intellicus Studio will NOT sort the data automatically. The SQL must have proper ‘Order By’ statement in the same sequence in which the report has been grouped.

Data Field in Barcode

It determines the value for which barcode is to be generated.  If the value in Datafield is blank or is no mapped then caption used in ‘Caption’ shall be shown.

Figure 17: DataField in Barcode

Image Source Type

Value of this property decides the source for selected image.

Path: Select this if image is located on local, or a network path that can be accessed from the machine where Intellicus Report Server is running.

URL: Select this if image is to be fetched from a web location.

Binary Data: Select this to pick up the image at run time from a field in database, or embed the image in report (IRL) by picking it up from a path.

Image Path

Value of this property decides the path from where the image should be picked up.

Important: This is the path to the image file on computer where Intellicus report server is running.

Font

This option will be available in the Properties list if you select a label or a field control from the layout pane. The ‘Font’ property allows you to set font name, size, styles, and effects. When you select this option from the Properties list, Font dialog box will appear to select various options for the font.

You can also change the font settings for a control at runtime, depending on conditions applied on the same. The following examples sets the sales figure above a certain value to a bold, underline format.

For above, you can use Conditional Formatting feature too.

Object: Detail            Event: OnFormat

Code:

function OnFormat()

{

if (parseInt(rpt.sections(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).dataValue) > 10000 )

{

rpt.sections(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).bold = true;

rpt.sections(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).font.underLine = true;

}

else

{

rpt.sections(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).bold = false;

rpt.sections(“Details”).controls(“txtSales”).font.underLine = false;

}

}

Font in Barcode

This property sets the font of the caption on the barcode.  The ‘Font’ property allows you to set font name, size, styles, and effects. When you select this option from the Properties list, Font dialog box will be displayed for you to select from various options.

XLColumn

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to MS Excel format.  Value set in this property decides the column in which selected control will be rendered.


Figure 40: XL Column

The exact column will be calculated based on location of the control in the section and values set in XLCellHeight and XLCellWidth properties.

XLColumnSpan

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to MS Excel format.  Value set in this property decides the number of cells to be kept blank before rendering the next control on its right.


Figure 41:XLColumnSpan


Figure 42:ColumnSpan set to 3

For example, value in column A is long and may extend 5 columns, set this property to 5.  This will ensure that value of the next field is placed in column F.  If the data is smaller in width and does not expand all the columns, format is copied in all the columns.

XLRow

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to MS Excel format.  The value set in this property will decide relative row number in which the control should be placed.  It actually works like previous row count plus the value set here.


Figure 43: XLRow

The exact row number will be calculated based on location of the control in the section and values set in  XLCellHeight and XLCellWidth properties.

Note: To decide the actual row in which this control will be placed, Intellicus adds the value of XLRow in the row number in which control of the previous record was placed.   For example, for a control placed in detail section, if last record was placed in row 5, XLRow = 1 will make sure next record is placed in row 6, that is, (5 + 1).

XLRowSpan

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to MS Excel format.  It is used to define number of rows to be kept blank below the cell.  Format is copied in all the columns.

The exact count of row will be calculated based on location of the control in the section and value of XLCellHeight and XLCellWidth properties.


Figure 44: XMLRowSpan


Figure 45: RowSpan set to 2

For example, after cell A1, to keep cells A2 and A3 empty, set XLRowSpan to 3.  This will ensure that value of the next record is placed in row A4.

XMLTagName

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to XML format.  Use this property to specify the tag-name for selected control.  This tag name will be used when this report is exported in XML.


Figure 46: XMLTagName

If by default the property is kept blank.  In this case, field name is used as tag name.

XMLType

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to XML format.  Value set in this property decides if the control should be included in XML output or not.

  • EXCLUDE: To exclude this control from XML Output.
  • ELEMENT: To include this control as an element of XML.
  • ATTRIBUTE: To include this control as an attribute of XML.


Figure 47: XML Type

By default the property does not have any value.  In this case, the value is considered as element.

XMLCdata

Set value for this property if this report will be exported to XML format. Value set in this property decides if the control should be included in XML output or not.  Leave this as TRUE if data for this field may contain character(s) that violets XML Specifications.  When it is set to TRUE, data is placed in CDATA.

Note: This property can be used only if XMLType is ELEMENT.

To perform the same using the Script Editor, type the following code:

rpt.sections(“Detail”).controls(“txtName”).canShrink = false;

Note: This property does not apply to PageHeader and PageFooter sections.

ColumnCount

This option will be available in the properties list only when the details section is selected. It defines the number of columns in the report. This property can be used to print labels, or phonebook style listings. The width of each column equals the ‘PrintWidth’ of the report divided by the number of columns.

You can use the ‘ColumnLayout’ property to force associated group headers and footers to follow the same column format as their detail section.

To perform the same using the Script Editor, type the following code:

rpt.sections(“Detail”).columnCount = 3 ;

rpt.sections(“Detail”).columnDirection = 1;

Column Layout

This property will appear in the properties list if the group header/ footer section is selected.  It determines whether a group header section should use the same column layout as of its detail section.

Value Description
True The number of columns in a detail section will be reflected in the associated group headers and footers.
