Advanced Tab, Report Control Properties Dialog Box (Report Builder)

The Advanced tab enables you to set, add, or delete custom properties for a report control. You can also use it to change the rotation of the control. The Report Control Properties dialog box appears when you click Properties from the context menu of a report control, or when you double-click a report control.

Add

Angle

Enables you to type the desired angle, or select the angle in the spinner.

Default Properties

The following properties are associated with a report control when you add it to a report. You can edit the values, delete the properties, or add new properties.

Property Description

HTML.Link

When you run the report with HTML output, the evaluated expression is included as an HREF attribute in an anchor tag for the control.

HTML.Anchor

When you run the report with HTML output, the evaluated expression is included as a name attribute in an anchor tag for the control.

HTML.Alt-Title

When you run the report with HTML output, the evaluated expression is included as a title attribute in a <div> element for the control.

HTML.CSSClass.OverrideFRX

When you run the report with HTML output, the ReportOutput application creates CSS classes with style definitions for each report element. If you set the HTML.CSSFile report property in the Document Properties Tab, Report Properties Dialog Box (Report Builder) of the Report Builder Properties dialog box to a CSS file, you can use the HTML.CSSClass.OverrideFRX property to specify a CSS class in that file. This replaces the style created by the Report Builder.

HTML.CSSClass.ExtendFRX

If you set the HTML.CSSFile report property to a CSS file, you can use this property to specify a class to add style characteristics to the style created by the Report Builder.

HTML.PrintablePageLink

On the HTML reports, the system creates a bitmap file for each page. This occurs when the printed bitmaps are a much closer representation to the original page than the HTML. Setting this to true on a control will turn the control into a hyperlink to the image.

ListenerRef.NoRenderWhen

When this expression evaluates to true (.T.), the printed page will not include the specified object.

ListenerRef.Preprocess.NoRenderWhen

When this expression evaluates to true (.T.), the printed page will not include the specified object during the first pass of a multiple pass report run.

Object Rotation

The Object Rotation area enables you to rotate the report control from 0 to 360 degrees. The pivot point for the rotation is the upper left corner of the control. You can either click in the object rotation preview area to change the angle or use the Angle spinner to set the angle more explicitly.
