ASP.NET Settings

 

General Options

 

File folder

Temporary file folder for images, Export-to-Email/PDF, email log file and reports.

Notes
  1. If you use Export-to-Email/PDF or email log to text file or Generate report by HTTP GET/POST (see Table Setup), you must grant write permission to this folder on your server so the script can write files in this folder.
  2. If you have field specific file folder, set it in the View Tag panel (see Field Setup).
No cache Whether caching is required on browser
Multi-language

Enable multi-language project. If enabled, a combobox will appear on the top of the generated scripts for user to select language. See Tools for selecting languages for the multi-language project.

Important
  1. Multi-Language project must use utf-8 encoding. The charset of the project must be "utf-8". The code page must be "65001".
  2. The data in your database must be stored in unicode, otherwise your data will not be displayed properly.
  3. If you have customized the template and put unicode characters in the template directly instead of using language files, enable the Advanced Setting UTF-8 output files (see Customizing Template and Tools).
Default language

Default language of the project. It must be compatible with Charset (see HTML Settings). Default is English.

There is always one default language for a project. Only the English language file (english.xml) is shipped with ASP.NET Report Maker. If your project is single language but you use another language, create a language file for your language (see Customizing Template), put it in the "languages" subfolder under the installation folder and then select your default language using this combobox.

If you enable Multi-language, you must select one of the selected languages as the default language.

Server-side validation

Enable server-side form validation for Extended Filter.

Note If the available validation format in the Report Field Settings panel (see Field Setup) does not fulfil your requirements, you can use your own server-side validation code using Server Event and Client Scripts.
Client-side validation

Enable Client-side (JavaScript) form validation for Extended Filter.

Note If the available validation format in the Report Field Settings panel (see Field Setup) does not fulfil your requirements, you can use your own client-side validation code using Server Event and Client Scripts.

Records per page Number of records to be displayed on the list page of all tables. If blank or 0, default setting of 20 will be used.
Selectable page sizes

Number of records to be selected by user. Comma separated values, e.g. 10,20,50,ALL.

Note "ALL" (without quotes) is supported, other values must be integers.

Sort type None, Single column or Multiple column. If Multiple column is selected, the generated list page supports multi-column sorting by Ctrl-clicking the table header.

Export

Use button dropdown - show the export links as a button with dropdown menu. Default is showing the export links as a row of icons.

Records can be exported to HTML, Excel, Word, PDF or Email. HTML format is used as a printer friendly version.

Notes (Export to PDF)
  1. The extension is an experimental extension only. There are known issues, see Third-party Tools and read the note in the extension setup page (see Tools -> Extensions) for more information before use. Only enable it if necessary.
  2. The extension supports non-unicode alphanumerical characters (e.g. iso-8859-1) in the built-in PDF fonts (Times, Courier, and Helvetica) only. Currently unicode characters and double byte characters are NOT supported.
  3. The extension supports images (jpg, gif and png only), but a temporary folder is required during export, the extension uses the File folder (see above), make sure you specify a file folder and set write permission for the folder.
Note for Export to Email
  1. When exporting to Email, the user can send the records as HTML.
  2. If the report contain charts rendered by FusionCharts (not FusionCharts Free), the charts will be converted to embedded images in email content.

Export type - Determines what to export. The follows are supported:

  • All Pages - Records in all pages are exported
