Report Images can be either Pictures or Shapes. To Add or Edit a Report Image click on the Report Treeview and select the Section or Group you wish to create Image in.
Click the URI button to open the File Browser and select the Image Picture to show in the Report. Specify the Image size or leave zero for the Image to Auto Size.
Images can be also be Shapes in the form of Rectangles, Circles, Triangles and Hexagons. Shapes can also be styled with Text, Borders, Hatching, Gradients and Backgrounds. To specify the Image as a Shape change the Image Type from Picture to Shape.
To alter the Shape properties expand the Shape properties or click the Shape Editor button next to the Shape property.
Report Shape Images are a powerful graphical enhancement to the Report appearance and can also be applied to Paragraphs and Tables.
URI Query and Value Type
The URI Query for the Image can be an XQuery expression to specify the location of the Image. If the Value Type is a literal the Image File location will be determined from the URI property. If the Value Type is XQuery the Image location will be determined from the URI Query.
Images can also contain Report Conditional Rules to determine if the Image is displayed or not. Report Rules are XQuery expressions that return True or False and determine if Content is Enabled. By Default if empty the Rule will always be True.
XML namespaces are used for providing uniquely named elements and attributes. If the Data Source contains Namespaces they can be applied to the XQuery Processor.
