When designing an APPX output process, the APPX image editor allows for the specification of GUI attributes for each field. These GUI attributes apply to the entire field. However, occassionally, it is desirable to provide a finer level of control over the formating of the contents of a field. For example, it might be desirable to print an individual word or phrase within a field with a bold typeface. HTML tags provide the capability to format individual words or phrases within a field.

Generic Block Level Elements:

Changed:
<
<
Block level elements print a leading line break before the block and and a trailing line break after the block. This results in double line spacing between block level elements. However, a block level element which is the first element after the HTML element does not print a leading line break. Another execption is that a CENTER element never prints a leading line break resulting in single line spacing between a CENTER element and the preceding block level element. A block level element may not be nested within another block level element. If a block level element is not terminated by an ending tag and another block level element is encountered, then the termination of the first block level element is implied and a trailing line break is printed.

Bugs:

  1. Fixed - Field with no widget defined attempts to print formated html text. Fields with no widget should not print formated html text.
  2. Fixed - Field with Raw Text widget attempts to print formated html text. Raw Text widgets should not print formated html text.
  3. Fixed - Consecutive BR tags are not all being honored.
  4. Fixed - Specification of absolute font size does not change size of text. <FONT SIZE=6> should render the text using the report's default font size with a scale factor of 80%.
  5. Fixed - Text which overflows the boundaries of the field is not being clipped. For example, the top of superscripts on the first line of the field print above the top of the field boundary.
  6. OPEN - A block level element (H1-H6, CENTER, P, PRE) which immediately follows the <HTML> tag should not print a leading line break.
  7. OPEN - A CENTER element should only perform a leading line break if the position of the CENTER element is not at the left margin of the field. In other words, if a CENTER element is preceded by a BR tag or a closing tag of any other block level element (such as </P>) which forces a line break, the CENTER element should not perform a leading line break since the previous block was explicitly terminated resulting in a line break.

The report's base font size is applied to each field printed on the report.  However, individual fields on a report may be scaled up or down relative to the report's base font size by specifying a font scale at design time.  The base font size equates to a font scale of 100% or <font size=10>. APPX output processes support 28 font sizes (scale values).  All 28 font sizes are relative to the base font size of the report.

  "Absolute" font sizes are also supported thru the use of the FONT tag with the SIZE attribute, i.e.<FONT SIZE=n> where n=1 to 28.
Changed:

"Relative" font sizes are supported thru the use of the FONT tag with the SIZE attribute, i.e.<FONT SIZE="+n">  or <FONT SIZE="-n">

The base font size for a report is determined at runtime from the FORM record specified for the report.  The base font size is specified as a point size in the FORM record in APPX System Administration or, if not specified, is calculated based on the various page layout specifications in the FORM record.

The default font size for a report is determined at runtime from the specified FORM record.  The font size is specified (as a point size) in the FORM record in APPX System Administration or is calculated based on the various specifications in the FORM record.  The default font size equates to <font size=10> or a font scale of 100%. The table below shows that APPX supports 28 font sizes that are all scaled relative to the default font size of the report.

The report's base font size is applied to each field printed on the report.  However, individual fields on a report may be scaled up or down relative to the report's base font size by specifying a font scale at design time.  The base font size equates to a font scale of 100% or <font size=10>. APPX output processes support 28 font sizes (scale values).  All 28 font sizes are relative to the base font size of the report.

Generic Block Level Elements:

Block level elements print a leading line break before the block and and a trailing line break after the block. This results in double line spacing between block level elements.  However, a block level element which is the first element after the HTML element does not print a leading line break.  Another execption is that a CENTER element never prints a leading line break resulting in single line spacing between a CENTER element and the preceding block level element.  A block level element may not be nested within another block level element.  If a block level element is not terminated by an ending tag and another block level element is encountered, then the termination of the first block level element is implied and a trailing line break is printed.

A variety of html elements are now available (as of Release 4.3.0) for use in formating text within individual data fields in PDF reports created by APPX output processes.
 
Added:

When designing an APPX output process, the APPX image editor allows for the specification of GUI attributes for each field.  These GUI attributes apply to the entire field. However, occassionally, it is desirable to provide a finer level of control over the formating of the contents of a field.  For example, it might be desirable to print an individual word or phrase within a field with a bold typeface.  HTML tags provide the capability to format individual words or phrases within a field.
 HTML tags may be embedded within an ALPHA field or a TEXT field to specify how the field value is to be formated when printed.

The field must be added to the image with a widget type of LABEL or TEXT AREA.

Changed:
<
<
The field value must begin with "<html>".  The entire contents of the field will then be considered to be HTML text.
>
>
The field value must begin with an HTML tag, e.g. <HTML>.  The entire contents of the field will then be considered to be HTML text. HTML tags embedded within the field will supplement the GUI attributes that are defined at the field level.
  HTML tags are not case sensitive.  They may be entered as upper case or lower case.
Line: 25 to 28
 When an ALPHA field that contains end-of-paragraph characters ("") or underline characters ("_") is printed, these characters are not interpreted as text formating characters and are instead printed like any other characters regardless of whether the field contains HTML elements.

APPX support 28 font sizes which are scaled relative to the default font size for the report.

The default font size for a report is specified in the FORM record in System Administration or is calculated based on the various specifications in the FORM record.  The default font size equates to <font size=10> or a scale of 100%.

 

Bugs:

  1. Field with no widget defined attempts to print formated html text.  Fields with no widget should not print formated html text.
  2. Field with Raw Text widget attempts to print formated html text.  Raw Text widgets should not print formated html text.

Standard APPX text formating within a TEXT field is compatible with html formating as follows:
  • An APPX end-of-paragraph character ("" - xB6/182) has the same effect as a <br> element.
  • An APPX required space character ("_" - x5F/95) has the same effect as a &nbsp; (no break space). 

When an ALPHA field that contains end-of-paragraph characters ("") or underline characters ("_") is printed, these characters are not interpreted as text formating characters and are instead printed like any other characters regardless of whether the field contains HTML elements.

HTML tags may be embedded within an ALPHA field or a TEXT field to specify how the field value is to be formated when printed.

The field must be added to the image with a widget type of LABEL or TEXT AREA.

The field must begin with "<html>".  The entire contents of the field will then be considered to be HTML text.

If no widget is specified or if a RAW TEXT widget type is specified, the contents of the field will be printed without formating.

The label value of a LABEL widget may contain HTML tags as a way of formating the label value when printed.
