Changing Color & font Dynamically

2003-03-03 01:09

Hi,

 

How Can I change the color & font of a Text field Dynamically based on Value of that field ?

 

For example Say a field is displaying a amount, 1. I want to display amount in red if it is negative.

2. I want to make it bold if it is greater than say 10,000.00.

 

Is it possible to achive this ? If yes how can I do it ?

 

Thanks & Regards

Mohan

There is two ways to do this.

 

1. (The simple way): create two textfield overlapped and use printWhenExpression to print only the right field (the field are equals, but the first has foreColor red, and the second black).

 

2. Use programmatically the API of jasperreports 0.4.5 or greater that permits to control by program the result of a compiled print.

 

 

I hope this helps you

 

Giulio

Hi Giulio,

 

Yeh presently I am using simple way :-) but drawback is we have to difine another field, imagine if report has 20 such fields.

 

It is nice to have a this control with single text field, I am new to jasperreport, If jasper report support that, I wonder is it too difficult to impliment in iReport.

 

Just some thoughts. you might consider in future releases. Just keep in TODO list
