Format Text Field-End of Line/Cariage Return

2003-09-02 15:11

Hello,

 

I am filling a text field in a report and I would like to keep the format (tabs, spaces, EndOfLine/Cariage Return). The datasource is coming from an Oracle DB.

 

Can anyone please tell me how to maintain the text format?

 

Example

--------

Text:

See

Dog

Run

 

Current Output

--------------

See Dog Run

 

Desired Output

--------------

See

Dog

Run

 

Thank you for your assistance!

JR at least picks up and displays text with multiple lines - I don't know about tabs. I would guess you're importing it to HTML and the web browser is causing you the trouble

Well, I guess the issue is with the Oracle DB. The field in the Oracle table is:

 

field1

-----

See Dog Run

 

I tried doing:

field2

-----

See "n"Dog "n"Run

 

But the output was: See "n"Dog "n"Run

 

So, I guess the correct question is what is the correct syntax for Oracel and JasperReport for carriage return/EndofLine?

 

My jasper report is being exported to an PDF file.

 

Thank you again for your assistance!!!

Do you know for sure if the characters were stored correctly in the db? The example you gave doesn't look like it has multiple lines in it.

 

I don't use Oracle, but the command line SQL of my db (Firebird) displays the text as-is, CR/LF and all, so I would think Oracle's would, too. I'd check there next.
