Customizing settings item visibility





To make a settings item available in the report customization window, use the User-defined settings item properties command in the item customization window.

Then you can specify that this is a custom item and also specify a presentation for the item and its editing mode (ordinary, quick access, or unavailable), see fig. 157.

 

Fig. 157. Adding a custom settings item

In the settings structure list, you can use the User-defined settings item properties command to set up the custom settings for the current structure item.

Each structure item has its own assortment of customizable items.


Object

Customizable items

Report

Selected fields, order, filter, conditional appearance, assortment of groupings

Grouping/table grouping/chart grouping

Grouping, selected fields, filter, order, conditional appearance, assortment of nested groupings

Chart

Chart, selected fields, conditional appearance, assortment of series groupings, assortment of point groupings

Table

Table, selected fields, conditional appearance, assortment of row groupings, assortment of column groupings

Nested schema

Nested report, selected fields, filter, order, conditional appearance, assortment of groupings

Use the User-defined settings item properties command to change the following settings:

  • In a filter list: the settings for the current filter item/filter item groups.
  • In a list of output parameters and data parameters: settings for the current parameter.
  • In a conditional appearance list: settings for the current conditional appearance item.

Note. If a setting is included in the custom settings, when a report is executed, the setting value is retrieved from the custom settings and not from the report option settings. When you edit a report option, modification of a setting included in the custom settings has no effect because the setting value is retrieved from the custom settings.

Besides, the User-defined settings command available on the report structure command bar (see the figure below) opens a window that displays the settings along with their default values.
