Hi all

Is there anyway to assign a resource key to a text label dynamically?
Do i need to use a kind of scripting for each label that I need to translate base on the locale of the machine?

Thanks for any input.

Take a look at this example
http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/devshare/designing-birt-reports/351-localization-of-birt-reports/

You also may want to look at this wiki page:

Thanks Jason
It worked as expected
One more question
It is possible to insert an image dynamically?
We have a report that the only thing changes is the customer, we want to insert dynamically its logo on it.

Thanks

Hi Jason Thanks for the link
I was able to do it as this :
1 . this.URI = "file:///C:/eclipsework/myreports/myimage.png";
That was on a windows box, however I couldn't get it working on a linux box, is there any syntax rule for Linux? I tried
this.URI = "report/images/myimage.png" and it does not work (we have birt runtime on a tomcat servlet)
I tried
2. this.URI="http://myhost/report/images/myimage.png" and it worked as expected

We prefer the number 1 idea, it is more flexible when you have the same report for several clients with a different logo, so you can have symlink to myimage.png

Idea number 2 will be great if BIRT can retrieve the hostname of the box so we could have something like this
this.URI="http://${hostname}/report/images/myimage.png"

We want to have only one report design for several clients where the hostname is different.

Thanks in advance for any idea for this.

JulioC.

Can you try a linux uri like:

Hi Jason
I got the report working using birt viewer on tomcat.

However I have a question, it is possible using javascript to guess the OS of the browser in BIRT?

I was trying to use a normal javascript tool

navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win")

is there any similar way to do that in BIRT?

Thanks

You can do this with client side script. Just add a text element to the
report, set its type to html and enter this code:

<script language="JavaScript">
alert( navigator.appVersion );
</script>

You can always get the user agent header from the request before the
report runs as well:


brw = reportContext.getHttpServletRequest().getHeader("User-Agent");
