Listing

Report Class Setup - Listing pane

This window pane provides a list of all program report classes including any custom classes that have been brought in using the Change Management System. The orientation column shows either kOrientPortrait or kOrientLandscape being Portrait and Landscape respectively.

You can modify margins and Page Setups for specific reports on the other tab pane.

The list shows the library in which the report class is stored. If, prior to opening the window, you first operate the File -- Advanced -- Custom Features Utility function, also listed will be all reports in all libraries opened. This is useful when perfecting a design or applying PDF settings to custom report designs that, in due course will be distributed with the Change Management System.
