Great for displaying report parameters inside report without the need of coding skills. I highly recommend adding a filter options section on your reports so its possible to figure out
exactly what the report shows data for.
The Installation is very simple.
- Add the plugin from the attached zip file to the plugins folder of your Designer and relaunch it. The Report Item should then be visible in the palette at the bottom. I included a screenshot of how it should look inside the zip file.
- Add the plugin to the birt.war/WEB-INF/lib and restart the server, it should then process the report item at runtime.
You can also download a report doc for testing purpose, so you can see it in action.
The plugin is tested with 2.6 and up but I see no reason why it would not work before that.
The plugin is ready for translation so if that is needed feel free to contribute a fragment with languages.
The plugin is made available using the http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-v10.html
