The Ignition manual makes several references about seeing the “Reporting Section” for further details. The trouble is that I cannot find any "Reporting section in the manual at all
Yes, you’re right, we haven’t transposed the classic Reporting Plugin’s user manual into Ignition’s user manual yet. This will happen shortly. In the meantime - the concepts of using the Reporting module’s components haven’t changed and you can review them in the classic manual.
Thanks for the link to the Manual Carl. I have dowloaded the Off-line (PDF) version & have started to use the deport designer. A couple of things I have noted already are:
1.) You Can’t Put text Headings on a Crosstab report (unless there is some trick that I have missed)
2.) There is no way of selecting Multiple “cells” in a crosstab and adjust the Height/Width/Alignment as a group.
3.) the report designer “lost the plot” (i.e. wasn’t automatically redrawing the options when selected without having to “click a second time” on the items - sorry that the description is a bit murky, it was a general problem that included not drawing the sizing handles on Cells too.) Exiting the report designer & restarting it did not correct this. Only a complete exit from the ignition Designer & restart corrected it.
Thanks for the feedback. The Reporting Module is going to get a pretty serious overhaul for version 2, probably sometime near the end of the year.
(Has the report section been “revisited seriously” yet? )
Well, the manual got merged in for 7.5, but no new reporting module as of yet. Still on the to-do list though!
