Dynamic variable expression calculation is not being displayed on the report.

0

Hi,

I have this unique problem of displaying variable value at runtime for each record basis.

The variable values should be calculated at runtime based on the parameter value provided. However the values are not getting rendered on the report.

 

I have already tried to set the variable "reset type to Page", still no success.

Here is the JRXML for the same. Please resolve.

 

Parameter JRXML:

<parameter name="PARAM_DYNAMIC1" class="java.lang.String">
<defaultValueExpression><![CDATA["IT_PM"]]></defaultValueExpression>
</parameter>
<parameter name="PARAM_DYNAMIC2" class="java.lang.String">
<defaultValueExpression><![CDATA["IT_PM"]]></defaultValueExpression>
</parameter>
 
Field JRXML:
 
<field name="ITPM" class="java.lang.String">
<fieldDescription><![CDATA[ITPM]]></fieldDescription>
</field>
<field name="ITPMOLEAD" class="java.lang.String">
<fieldDescription><![CDATA[ITPMOLEAD]]></fieldDescription>
</field>
<field name="BUSPMOLEAD" class="java.lang.String">
<fieldDescription><![CDATA[BUSPMOLEAD]]></fieldDescription>
</field>

Variable JRXML:

<variable name="Dynamic1" class="java.lang.String">
<variableExpression><![CDATA[($P{PARAM_DYNAMIC1} == "IT_PMO" ? "IT PMO Lead" : 
($P{PARAM_DYNAMIC1} == "BUS_PMO" ? "Business PMO Lead" :

The text fields are not getting rendered for any parameter value specified.
Any help would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks.

Try using the above posted jrxml and display the Dynamic1 variable with the evaluation time of Report.

It is displaying the value after it has been fixed.

 

"==" has been used for checking equality of objects, which will not work in some of the cases.

I have changed it to ".equals" method which is specifically used for checking equality of objects

I believe that your conditional expressions are not correct. check the above jrxml

PARAM_DYNAMIC1 parameter is returning "IT_PM"
Dynamic1 variable is decoding "IT_PM" and returning "IT Project Manager"
Dynamic1_Val variable is again trying to decode the value of Dynamic1 variable as "IT_PM" , which is not correct. It should be looking for "IT Project Manager".

Thanks. Let me clear out any confusion here.

I am displaying both Dynamic1 and Dynamic1_Val. The following conditions are being calculated for each record retrived from DB.

If Param_Dynamic1 = "IT_PM, then Dynamic1 = "IT Project Manager", Text Field1.text = "IT Project Manager" (Value of Dynamic1)

If Dynamic1= "IT Project Manager", then Dynamic1_Val = Query Field {IT_PM}, Text Field2.text = IT PM Value from DB (Value of Dynamic1_Val)

 

The problem is that, not a single text field value is being displayed on the report.

 

To your point: I agree that calculation of Dynamic1_Val is wrong. I will rectify that. But why Dynamic1 variable value is not displayed on the report even.
