Report Column attributes
The Report Column part has the following attributes associated with it:
The backgroundColor attribute is the name of the RGB color for the background of the part.
You cannot change the background color of a column. This attribute is ignored for the Container Details Column part. This attribute is also ignored for a report viewer.
The borderStyle property specifies the border to be drawn around a report object. You can specify either Dashed, Heavy, None, or Normal for any the top, bottom, left, or right border of the part.
The deviceFont property specifies the font to use for a particular device. You can set the font for your display or printer, for example.
The displayDevice attribute represents the name of the printer on which the report is to be printed. This attribute corresponds to the Device setting for the font used in the Report Calculated Field.
The fontName attribute is the name of the font to use for the text displayed in the part.
The foregroundColor attribute is the name of the RGB color for the foreground of the part.
The self attribute represents the part itself, and you cannot change the basic definition of a part. In general, the self attribute is a read-only attribute, and is used for passing a value or values to another part. It is not used for receiving any values.
For example, you can connect the self attribute of an Ordered Collection part to the items attribute of a List part. The Ordered Collection part does not change to a different type of part because of the connection. Instead, the Ordered Collection part populates the List part with the items that it contains.
You can use the self attribute in an attribute-to-attribute connection, as a parameter in an event-to-action connection, or wherever an attribute can be used.
The unitTypeSelected attribute refers to the unit of measurement for setting margins and field sizes in a report. You can choose from the following:
The width attribute refers to the width (in units set by the unitTypeSelected attribute) of the part.
The x attribute represents the number of units from the left margin to indent the part.
