Greek in HTML/PDF: Could not load font...

2003-10-19 23:21

Hello again,



I want Greek in my HTML and PDF reports, but all I get is "????? ??" or nothing at all.


I used the webapp demo that comes with Jasper, and I get the message:

"dori.jasper.engine.JRException: Could not load font from location : helvetica"


I made the following modifications:

1. I changed some of the data at the WebappDataSource.java and recompiled ok.


2. I tried using:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-7"?>


3. together with:




but nope! It Gives me "?????? ???" in HTMLs and nothing on PDFs.


Is there something I'm doing wrong? How can I put Greek characters in my reports (html/pdfs)?

I think it should be pdfFontName="Helvetica" and not "helvetica".


There is also the provided "unicode" sample that shows you how to generate reports in Greek.


I hope this helps.
