Wyn Enterprise: Shape

In Wyn Enterprise, shapes are used to highlight a specific area of a report, and no data is associated with them. Unlike the Container control, other controls cannot be placed inside a Shape control. Shape control is a graphical element used to add the following shapes to a report:

  • Rectangle
  • Rounded Rectangle
  • Ellipse

To add a Shape control to a report, navigate to the Report Designer and follow the below instructions:

  1. From the Designer Toolbar, drag and drop the Shape control onto the design area.
    Drag and drop Shape control on design area

  2. Using the Inspector Panel on the right side of your screen, customize the appearance of the Shape control. See the Inspector Panel Properties section for more information on the properties of the Shape control.
