Can't right-align text field


Recommended Posts

In Studio, I've set some text fields to right align because they contain Big Decimal data, so I want the decimal places in 1,000.00 to line up with the decimal places in 100.00.  It looks fine in  designer view in Studio (v. 6.20.6), but when published to the server, all decimal values are left aligned like text.  Note that I can't preview in Studio because the parameter type doesn't let me add a value locally.

Obviously, my reports won't match the client specifications until I can figure this out.
I've confirmed that each text field and static text header have Text Alignment = right align.  I tested this by changing one to center align, and that also didn't work when published to the server.

In studio jrxml file, set the textAlignment attribute in the <textElement/> tag that is associated with the text element to appropriate value (i.e. right) save it and after save try to publish the reprot on server.

Thanks @jphadtar, but I'm trying to understand why the software UI doesn't perform the function as expected.  Seems like this is a known bug, @Mehak Rajkumar.  Is it on the roadmap to be fixed?

As for the workaround...when I started using Jaspersoft Studio earlier this year, I didn't come across any training resources about editing the XML directly.  Did I overlook them?  What's the best way to learn which tags correspond to the UI elements?
