Printing vertically

2004-01-23 12:21

Is there any way to print vertically. I want to print on the binding of a cd jewel case insert.

Hi,

 

Vertical text is not yet supported.

 

Thank you,

Teodor

Hi,

 

Now it is possible.

 

If you get the latest CVS version, there is a new

"rotation" attribute for text elements.

Possible values are "None", "Left" and "Right".

 

Thank you,

Teodor

Now, I'm just going to toss this out there for discussion purposes...

 

I see that you have three rotation options. My guess is that None does no rotation, Left does a 90 degree rotation to the left (-90), right does a 90 degree rotation to the right (+90). I have not checked, I make this statement purely from speculation. If I am incorrect, perhaps you could set me straight, if I am correct, then proceed to next paragraph...

 

Instead of hardcoding in Left or Right directions, could we instead have a field that simply accepts a number between 0 and 360 (0 is the default)? This would facilitate all possible rotations, wouldn't it?

 

I bring this up only so that it can be discussed so that JasperReports can be as flexible as *anyone* could imagine.

Hi,

 

Letting free the rotation angle is not quite simple

and I think the effect is different from the current

solution.

 

With the present "rotation" attribute, it is the text

inside the text element that is rotated and not the

element itself which stays at the declared x, y position.

 

With angles different then 90 or -90, it is difficult

to make the text run oblique inside an up-right rectangle (I only assume this, not actually tried it).

 

Thank you,

Teodor

ColumnText supports slanted columns but I doubt that any rotation other then 0, 90 and -90 doesn't make much sense. I can suggest that for completeness upside down text could also be considered.

 

Best Regards,

Paulo Soares

I do agree that ANY angle is a bit overkill, but slanted (45 degree) might be useful.

 

Think of narrow columns of data with large titles. Like a general ledger style report. I will try to simulate (but it may not turn out properly)

 

/c/ /f/

/b/ /e/

/a/ /d/

And mirrored text (or whatever the name should be): text as seen in a mirror.

I need this feature to build a report today.

 

Congratulations for jasperreports,

Can you explain this a bit more ?

Is this vertical print:

v

e

r

t

i

c

a

l

 

Or do you mean that all letters are rotated 90 degrees before printing ?

Hi,

 

All letters are rotated.

However, this functionality is not available in HTML

format where the text remains unrotated.

 

Thank you,

Teodor
