Text alignment using a parameter

2004-03-03 21:26

Is is possible to change the alignment of text field using a parameter ?

 

Thanks,

Mihir

You mean like saying textAlignment=$P{HAlign} ? No.

 

but you can first load up the xml and dynamically change the design.

Don't thank me yet :) I'm having problems of my own with Jasper which no on seems able to answer. So I'm probably not too accurate about things.

 

As for your question, I don't think it'll affect performance much. As I know it, the steps are:

1) Load up a JasperReport from your .jasper. (or compile one)

2) Get the band with the textfield, search for the textfield to get the reference.

3) Update what you need.

 

Take a look at the alterdesign sample to get an idea, especially with the use of keys. Should help.

 

But I may still be wrong, cos I really haven't tried something like that before.

Thanks David.

 

What will be the effect on performance if I change the design dynamically?

Hi,

 

There are two ways to do this:

 

1) "alterndesign" sample

2) http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/tips.tricks.html#formatting

 

I hope this helps.

Sorry, I cannot find the alterndesign sample or am I blind.

Hi,

 

It is in the /demo/samples directory of the distributed

project package.

Or here:

 

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/jasperreports/jasperreports/demo/samples/alterdesign/

 

Thank you,

Teodor
