Horizontal Filling


Recommended Posts



Is there a way to perform horizontal filling with a field?


Like a field $F{number} the result will be:

10 20 2 3 20 40 80


instead of one in each line


I know there is possible to divide the report in columns, but that would be a static way. if my datasource has more entries than report's columns, it would go to the next line, I dont want that


Is there a way to do this?

If you have only one field, you could overwrite the getFieldValue() method of the datasource class.


something like:


class MyDataSource extends OtherDataSource {

public Object getFieldValue(JRField jrField) {
StringBuffer data = new StringBuffer(""«»);
while(a_condition) {
data.append((String)super.getFieldValue(jrField)+ " "«»);
if(!next()) {
return data.toString();
