Is For Prompting - Dialog Window?


Recommended Posts

How can I implement a dialog window for users to be prompted to enter in data before a report is run?


I have the following code snippets:


(1) java code for the parameter(s):

Map map = new HashMap();
map.put("START_DATE", new Date());


(2) parameters in template:


[code]<parameter name="START_DATE" isForPrompting="true" class="java.util.Date" >
<parameterDescription><![CDATA["Please enter a Start Date (mm/dd/yyyy)"]]></parameterDescription>


When I run the report, no dialog window appears. Can you please give details on how to implement a simple dialog window for this?

JasperReports is only a reporting library. It does not have dialogs an pop-ups to prompt you to enter values.

This is something that your application should do.

So you need to work on that.

Otherwise, use iReport or JasperServer.


I hope this helps.
