Report Control Properties Dialog Box (Report Builder)

Makes it possible for you to set options for report controls on your report layout.

This dialog box appears when you choose Properties from the context menu of a report control, or when you double-click a report control.

NoteNote

This dialog box is only displayed if the _REPORTBUILDER system variable is set to the default Report Builder application. If it is empty, or has been set to a third-party report builder, the native Visual FoxPro dialog box (or a third-party dialog box) may appear. For more information, see _REPORTBUILDER System Variable.

The following table lists the tabs that exist in the Report Control Properties dialog box and are available as appropriate.

NoteNote

When modifying the report or label in protected mode, some or all tabs might not be available as specified by protection mode settings.
