I've searched this forum and the main website for documentation on the Report Generation facilities of the 4.2 Enterprise edition, but without success. I can't believe that there is no documentation for features that cost money, so where is it?

    Hi folks!

    In the absence of documentation I'm trying to get get to grips with report generation by trial and error, hardly the best way but I need to produce reports, urgently...

    I've got the HTML example going and am interested by some of its output...
    You can even specify simple templates to ensure that the reports will have your corporate design.
    I would really like to have some guidance on how to make such templates, can anybody help?

    Hi,
    all I can say is, that we are working on some kind of handbook. But as you might imagine we've got our hands full. If humans only got six of them. Two additional would help me a lot :)

    Greetings,

    Hey there,

    as Sebastian said, we are currently working on a documentation of the Reporting Engine. The examples on the web page are certainly a good starting point for now. Here are some additional hints:

    - for PDF reports, you can specify a background image or PDF file in the report options

    - for HTML reports, you can specify a template file which can make use of the following HTML tags and stylesheet ids / classes:

    TAGS:
    html
    body
    h1
    h2
    h3
    p
    b
    img
    a

    Stylesheet IDs:

    div rm_content
    div rm_toc
    div rm_logo

    Stylesheet Classes:

    a .rm_content_header
    ul .rm_toc
    li .rm_toc_entry
    table .rm_table
    tr .rm_table
    th .rm_table
    td .rm_table
    Additionally, the macros %{RM_REPORT_TITLE}, %{RM_REPORT_CONTENT}, %{RM_REPORT_TOC}, %{RM_REPORT_LOGO} are supported. At places where these macros are placed, the corresponding content will be added (the report title, the report content, the report table of contents (TOC), and a logo)


    Here is an example for a HTML template:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
    <title>%{RM_REPORT_TITLE}</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    html { font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 1.4em; background: #CABCA5; color: #60420A; }
    body { margin: 0px; }
    li.rm_toc_entry a { color: #777777; text-decoration: none; }
    li.rm_toc_entry a:hover { color: #B6A891; }
    p { padding-top: 2px; margin-top: 2px; padding-bottom: 2px; margin-bottom: 2px; }
    h1 { font-size: 24px; font-weight: bold; color: #60420A; padding-top: 36px; }
    h2 { font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold; color: #60420A; padding-top: 24px;  }
    h3 { font-size: 16px; font-weight: bold; color: #60420A; padding-top: 18px;  }
    li.rm_toc_entry { font-size: 8; line-height: 2em; }
    .rm_content_header { color: #60420A; font-weight: bold; font-size: 11px; padding-top: 16px; }
    .rm_table { border: 1px solid #60420A; padding: 5px; margin: 0; border-spacing: 0; border-collapse: collapse; }
    .rm_toc { list-style-type: none; padding-right: 5px; padding-left: 1em; margin-left: 1em; }
    div#rm_content    { padding: 8px; border: 1px solid #60420A; background: white; }
    div#rm_toc        { padding: 8px; border: 1px solid #60420A; background: white; }
    div#rm_logo      { padding: 8px; border: 1px solid #60420A; background: white; margin-bottom: 28px; }
    div#custom_title  { padding: 15px; border: 1px solid white; background: #60420A; text-align: center; color: white; font-weight: bold; font-size: 18px; }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <table border="0" width="100%" style="width: 100%" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="10">
    <colgroup>
    <col width="250px" />
    <col width="*" />
    </colgroup>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2">
    <div id="custom_title">
    %{RM_REPORT_TITLE}
    </div>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td valign="top">
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    <td valign="middle" align="center">
    %{RM_REPORT_LOGO}
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>
    %{RM_REPORT_TOC}
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    <td valign="top">
    %{RM_REPORT_CONTENT}
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>
    Cheers,

    Bonsoir Ingo,

    You are a Saint, many many thanks. I was amusing myself with document manipulation via Javascript, slipped in via the TextReporter operator, and am happy to stop!

    Hi,

    Just as a follow-up: I just noticed that there were some small copy and paste errors in the sample template (as you probably noticed yourself). I edited the sample code above and it shows now a correct example.

    Cheers,
    Ingo
