Newbie - Size conversion

2002-09-22 09:14

Hi, I'm new to JR.


After running demos provided, one question still doesn't clear

to me. That is how is the size conversion works.


Eg, setWidth 595 is eq ... inch or point,

or if I set font height to 12, is the same as setting it to 12 points ?


Do we have somewhere table, so we can make a quick calc about

pagesize, font size, line width in real world metric calculation ?


Thank you very much

JasperRerports uses the Java default resolution

of 72dots/inch.


So, width="595" means about 8.26 inches,

the width of an A4 paper.


Font size is in points.


Thank you,
