Formating output report 29.07.2013 13:23

Hi,
I have a new calculator but need to be able to format the structure and styling of the output report (PDF, email or excel). I need to be able to move the results around on the page to make it easier to read and format the text styling using CSS. Can anybody help.

Regards,

Brian

Hi,
if you need the exported report to be different from the default output, you can set Include Result =NO at your print preferences. Then include your preferred layout and styling at the 'HTML before calc results' section, please note you can include there both fixed content, and inputs/outputs from the calculator using the same sintax you use at the exit output ( ##var## )

Hope this helps, regards

Hi,
I was able to create a HTML report but is I did not get far due to my programing skills and some of the required output fields are not visible in the form layout. Is it possible to change the default layout and then simply add some before and after HTML elements?

Regards,

Brian

Hi,

Yes, 'form layout' could be defined with HTML editor/code and, to show form fields, add it anywhere in this way:

##MY_VAR_FIELD_NAME##

Calcbuilder replaces ##MY_VAR_FIELD_NAME## with the appropiate HTML form field (text, select, checkbox...) depending on its type.

Hope this helps. Regards,
