Wyn Enterprise: Report Controls

The Toolbox in Wyn Report Designer offers several report controls and data regions that you use to create a report. You can drag these from the toolbox and drop them onto your reports. Each report control in the toolbox has its own sets of pre-defined settings which you can customize as per your requirements.

The following table lists the available report controls in the Report Toolbox.

Report Control Description
TextBox Textbox Icon The TextBox control is the most extensively used report control by the users. It is used to display static text and expressions in a report. Also, it is the default control that appears in each cell of a Table or Tablix report control and is automatically created when you drag a field from a dataset onto the design area.
CheckBox Checkbox Icon The CheckBox control is used to display boolean data, which can have one of the two possible values - true or false. You can check and clear a checkbox by simply clicking on it. By default, a checkbox control appears as a small box with its text to the right.
Container Container Icon The Container control is used as a container for other report items. Use this report control to enhance the layout and appearance of your report. There is no data associated with the Container control.
Line Line Icon The Line control draws a horizontal, vertical, or a diagonal line with the specified size and color in the report. It is used for both enhancement and visual separation of report controls. This report control has no data associated with it.
Shape Shape Icon The Shape control is a graphical element that allows you to embed shapes of different types into your reports such as rectangles, rounded rectangles, or elliptical shapes. There is no data associated with this report control.
Table Of Contents Table Of Contents Icon The Table of Contents control is used to display the document map in the body section of the report. Document map is an organized hierarchy of the report heading levels and labels along with their page number, which allows you to quickly understand and navigate the data inside a report.
Image Image Icon An Image control is used to insert images of different types into your reports such as external source, a database, or embedded.
List List Icon The List control is a container element in which you can place other report controls and arrange them in any configuration you like. These report controls placed inside the List control repeats for each row or group in the dataset.
Table Table Icon The Table control is the most commonly used control that organizes the data in tabular format, that is, into rows and columns. It contains three rows and columns by default, a total of nine cells, each of which is filled with a text box. You can add and remove rows or columns, filter or sort the table data, and add groups to suit your needs.
Tablix Tablix Icon The Tablix control displays data in cells that are arranged in rows and columns. It is essentially a combination of two data regions - table and matrix, and provides enhanced layout capabilities ranging from the creation of simple tables to advanced matrices.
Chart Chart Icon The Chart control represents the data graphically, making it easier for you to comprehend large amounts of data quickly. You can work with a variety of chart types including column, bar, line, area, pie, spiral, polar, radar, and miscellaneous, and accordingly customize its elements like chart axis, data labels, chart title, etc. as per your needs.
Bullet Bullet Icon The Bullet control is used to compare the performance of a target measure against the other quantitative measures in the dataset. It serves as an alternative for the dashboard gauges.
Barcode Barcode Icon The Barcode control lets you insert different types of barcodes into your reports. Along with that you can also control its position, style, background color, width, and other properties.
Formatted Text Formatted text Icon The Formatted Text control displays richly formatted text. You can also use this control for the mail merge operations. The formatted text control takes HTML code as the input.
Sparkline Sparkline Icon The Sparkline control is a small graph drawn without any axes or coordinates. This control is specifically used to display data trends in your reports. The different types of supported sparklines are line, column, whiskers, area, and stackedbar.
Subreport Subreport Icon The Subreport control is used to insert another report in your current report. You can pass parameters from the current report to display the filtered data in the subreport.
Overflow Placeholder Overflow Placeholder Icon The Overflow Placeholder control is only available with the Page Reports. This control is used when the data does not fit inside the fixed size report controls like list, tablix, banded list, and table.
Banded List Banded List Icon The Banded List control is a collection of free-form bands in which you can place your report controls. By default, it consists of three bands - a header, a footer, and a detail band. The bound report controls in the detail band repeat for every row of data.
