Overview

The Rich Text control displays formatted text (static, dynamic or mixed) in your report.

To add this control to a report, drag the Rich Text item from the Toolbox onto the report’s area.

You can load RTF or HTML content from an external file. Expand the Data category and click the Load file property’s ellipsis button.

In the invoked Open dialog, select the file and click Open.

You can double-click the Rich Text to invoke its in-place editor and enter static text.

Press CTRL+Enter to submit changes and exit the in-place editor.

Bind to Data

Click the Rtf Expression or Html Expression option’s ellipsis button to invoke the Expression Editor. This editor allows you to bind the control to a data field or construct a complex binding expression with two or more data fields.

You can use HTML formatted text, which contains markup tags to define text appearance. Click the Html Expression option’s ellipsis button and enter this text in ‘ quotes ‘ in the invoked Expression Editor.

Drag and drop a numeric or text field from the Field List onto the Rich Text control to bind it to this field.

The Rich Text also enables you to merge data fields and static content in its text.
