Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to change the layout of the popup window that BIRT uses for entering parameters. I have a big load of parameters to set for extracting my reports and the existing format of the popup window is not very convenient. Are there some libraries that I can use that will enable me making moderations on the Enter Parameters popup window or do I need to build a new user interface from scratch?

Thank you for you help

Teo,

The parameter page is defined using jsp/js files in the webcontent
directory of the viewer. Take a look at:
webcontent\birt\ajax\ui\dialog\BirtParameterDialog.js
and
webcontent\birt\pages\dialog\ParameterDialogFragment.jsp

Hi Jason,
first of all thank you for you quick response. I took a look at the files you suggested. I was wondering if it possible to create a set of checkbox parameters that are pulled dynamically from a dataset as in the case of a list box. With the existing parameter setting framework of BIRT I do not believe that it is possible. Do you have any idea how this could be implemented?
thanks again for your help

Teo

Teo,

One way you could do something similar to this is to create one report
that will act as a driver to another report. In the initial report you
could use a text element that is nested in a table bound to your dataset
that creates a html check box for each row of the dataset. You could
then add a submit button to the text element that would forward the
checkbox values to the second report.
