Hello,

When the .rptdesign file is run within BIRT on Eclipse, and if user input parameter for the query is required, a "Parameter Selection Page" window is displayed.

Is it possible for the "Parameter Selection Page" to be displayed from within a Java application (e.g. stand-alone app or RCP app) when using the BIRT RE api to generate a report? As easy it is though, I am just hoping I do not have to create a window to prompt the user for parameter input. I would like to reuse BIRT's "Parameter Selection Page" if possible.

Thanks alot,
--Anna

If you are using the re api you will need to create a parameter entry
screen. If you are building an rcp app you could always use the viewer
plugin and render it to a SWT Browser.
