Part IV: Designing Reports > Formatting Report Content

Chapter 10. Formatting Report Content

Formatting is what you do to make a report visually appealing and effective. Format a report, for example, to highlight certain data, change the display of dates, numbers, or currency values, adjust the spacing between report elements, or display data based on a specified condition or output format.

BIRT Report Designer provides many options for customizing the appearance of report elements. Using various formatting properties, you can change the alignment, color, font, size, and other properties of these report elements. You can also add background colors, draw borders around elements, and so on.
