Use Style on Text Expression


Recommended Posts


I am using iReport 3.7.3

And I am facing exact problem as I found on http://jasperforge.org/plugins/espforum/view.php?group_id=83&forumid=101&topicid=50134

But I can not see the continuation of that thread. So I ask again in this forum.

I have text expression with value

"<style isBold='true' fontSize='10'>Card No : " + $P{P_CARD_NO} + "</style>"

I could see the expected result on iReport but If I call it from JSP the text is in plain format. No bold. No bigger font size as 10 defined.

What's missing here?

The attributes whatever you are using under Style tag are incorrect. I don't know the actual reason behind that. But I also had the same problem and fixed myself.

There is no attribute called 'fontSize'. It should be 'size' only. I don't know the working attribute name for 'isBold'.

How did you solve the problem? As far as I know, "isBold" and "fontSize" where the proper attribute names! O.o

also, I've noticed that using simple html like "<b>TEXT</b>" doesn't seems to work anymore, not in the preview nor in the actual printed report. I've tried to set the markup to both "styled" and "html", but if I remember correctly, the "styled" option used to include the html part...

any help anyone?


EDIT: I don't really know about "fontSize", but I'm SURE I've used "isBold" plenty of times before, together with the html tags...
