Is it possible to include UI (text boxes, combo boxes, radio buttons, etc.) for changing report parameters and rerunning the report in a BIRT report? It's good enough if it only works with HTML version of the report. Crossposted from StackOverflow.

Yes you can add html with the text element. Look at the attached
example. It uses a text element to add a <select> drop down to the top
of the report with a refresh button to re-run the report with a
different parameter. The options for the select are built using some
server side script on a hidden table and data item above the table.

Great, thanks! I expect there should be no problem with embedding a datepicker in the same way either, right?

On looking into details, using this is somewhat more complex than desired. I'll need to try and think if it can be abstracted nicely.

If I understand what's going on here: http://code.google.com/a/eclipselabs.org/p/birt-functions-lib/wiki/BindParameters http://code.google.com/a/eclipselabs.org/p/birt-functions-lib/source/browse/branches/2.5.2/birt.functions.lib/src/innovent/birt/functions/BindParameters.java it should be possible...

Even simpler potentially for report developers would be to create custom ReportItems for parameter entry (Button, ComboList, TextBox, etc.). This is the route I am investigating now. Do you know any good public examples of custom report item extensions other than BIRT Controls and other variations on RotatedText?
