  1. Yeah of course that's possible, but what gainfully employed "actual developer" has the time to take on something like that. I know I sure don't. Anyway I'm not here to start an IDE debate but was just curious about what triggered the switch. I'm sure I'll get used to the Jaspersoft Studio environment with time.
  2. That all is interesting... I used Eclipse for several years with a maven project and then tried NetBeans 8. I honestly felt "freed" from a lot of pain. With the "native" recognition of the pom file & it treating all the maven module projects as one shared workspace, working with multi-module maven projects is a sinch. Maybe that that is the critical reason I like it so much, so if your not using maven, it might not be such a good experience. From my perspective, Eclipse is used a lot and also it's hated a lot by people that use it. So it's almost like Eclipse is pushed more by companies (maybe because it is more powerful, has a bigger ecosystem, etc) but not liked by the actual developers very well. However that is all is just from my little perspective, and I can't speak for the broader tech world.
  3. So I finally noticed today that iReport Designer development has been discontinued and replaced by Jaspersoft Studio which is based on Eclipse. I'm really curious about the thought process behind this since iReport Designer was built on NetBeans. I guess from my perspective NetBeans has a much cleaner & intuitive interface so I kinda see this as a step backward. Can someone fill me on the reasoning behind it?
  4. Changed Priority from High to Normal Changed Assigned User from - to @User_306070 Just wanted to note here that I have started an open source project on GitHub to deal with scaling a JasperReport up or down. It is here: https://github.com/flex-rental-solutions/jasper-reports-scalerIt's still very basic, currently it just scales element widths & X values to make the report elements squeeze in or out.
  5. Changed Severity from Minor to Major System Message
  6. Does Jasper Reports have a way to evenly split a page into two or more sections vertically? So that say the first group would print on top half and the second group would print on the bottom half?
  7. I'm using Jasper Reports 3.7.2. I have a report with two columns, set to horizontal print order, a summary band, and using an XML datasource. Whenever the printing stops with all columns having the exact same amount of records (in my case an even amount of records), the summary band is always pushed to the next page. Why does this happen? It almost has to a be a bug...

  8. Have you looked at using SQL unions? With unions you "stack" queries on top of each other. I've done that sort of thing for averages, etc at the bottom of the crosstab.
  9. I have an issue with some frames that I can not resolve. I have 3 frames side by side. They contain stretchable textfields. The frames are in a group and set to stretch relative to tallest object. I want the frames to be the same height no matter what but I can't seem to achieve this. I have the frames set to remove line when blank so that they shrink if there are textfields that remove line when blank. The frames shrink but they do not stretch as high as the tallest frame in a group. I realize this is because no frame is stretching so no other frame in the group is compelled to stretch either. How can I keep three frames side by side to have equal heights?
  10. I have a report that creates an extra page when it doesn't need to at all. It seems to be caused by textfields at the bottom that stretch and float. There is plenty of space for them to stretch and float down but it still creates an extra page. I will attach the jrxml file. Help would be appreciated... this is very frustating!
