Is there a way to have "Export to" and other menu items displayed in iFrame, but not have input controls popup?

0

I am trying to display a report within an iframe with the inner menu, especially the Export as menu, but not the top-level Frame (Jaspersoft Home Library View Create etc).  When i use viewAsDashboardFrame=true, my input controls are passed correctly to the report (i.e. no popup asking for input controls), however when I use just decorate=no, I can see the page formatted as I would like, but the input controls box pops up.

My end goal is to give the end user the ability to export to excel.  I know I can do this programmatically using Java, but am trying to not go that route to avoid having to do a release of code.  Is there a way to just get the menu bar to show up and allow my users to export as they like without asking for input controls again?

Thanks very much!

To answer my own question in case somebody else is looking, I created a hyperlink as follows:

<textField isStretchWithOverflow="true" pattern="" hyperlinkType="Reference" hyperlinkTarget="Blank">
    <reportElement uuid="8223e467-7e6c-4913-a01f-2617413a79d5" x="653" y="0" width="149" height="24"/>
    <textFieldExpression><![CDATA["Export to Excel"]]></textFieldExpression>
    <hyperlinkReferenceExpression><![CDATA["https://myserver/jasperserver-pro/flow.html?_flowId=viewReportFlow&ParentFolderUri=blahdeblah&reportUnit=blahdeblah&output=xls&hidden_param1=$P{param1}&hidden_param2=$P{param2}"]]>\n</hyperlinkReferenceExpression>
</textField>


I also made sure to set "Always Prompt" to off in the Controls and Resources panel.

I hope this helps someone!
