General Options

 

No cache Whether caching is required on browser
File folder

Temporary file folder for Export-to-Email/PDF/Excel/Word (PHPExcel/PHPWord for registered users only), email log file and reports.

Important
  1. If you use Export-to-Email/PDF/Excel/Word (PHPExcel/PHPWord only) 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 temporary files in this folder.
  2. If you have field specific file folder, set it in the View Tag panel (see Field Setup).
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".
  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 PHP 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 Sever 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 Sever Event and Client Scripts.
