i have some questions, hopefully u can help me.

1. when user want to print the report, user can click "Print Report" button. then window pop up will show, user must choose print format in PDF or HTML.
is it possible we do not show this Pop up window, and directly print with html format or PDF format?

2. when we choose print with HTML format, then pop up window will show with html report inside, can we close this window after printing the report? or can we do not show this HTML report window when we print?

3. Actually i use ASP.NET and using BIRT as the report application to show my report.
ussually when i generate report with Crystal Report, i send Datatable object as the source of the report, now in BIRT i convert the datatable to XML and use this temporary XML file as the source of the report. is it possible to delete this XML file after the report is generated? if possible, can u tell me how to do that?

Many thanks for u BIRT Expert..

1 - You can change the javascript functions that are used in the viewer
to make the Dialog automatically submit, which will launch the windows
print dialog. Look in the webcontent\birt\ajax\ui\dialog direcotry and
open the BirtPrintReportDialog.js file. Call the okPres in the preShow
function as shown below.

__preShow: function()
{
// disable the toolbar buttons
birtUtility.setButtonsDisabled ( "toolbar", true );

// disable the Navigation Bar buttons
birtUtility.setButtonsDisabled ( "navigationBar", true );
this.__okPress();
}

2 - Not sure how you would do this.

3 - I have not tried this but in the afterClose event you could try
something like:

try{
importPackage(Packages.java.io);
f = new File(fileName);
f.delete();
} catch (e) {
//do nothing
}

Hi Jason,
1. i put this.__okPress(); in the script, but i got javascript error in mask.js.
hide: function()
{
if(this.zIndexStack.length == 1)
{
this._updateElements(this._baseElements, true);
Element.hide( this.__mask );
this.zIndexStack.pop();
this.zIndexCurrent = this.zIndexBase;
}
else
{
//i think i got error here
this.zIndexCurrent = this.zIndexStack.pop();
this.__mask.style.zIndex = this.zIndexStack[this.zIndexStack.length -1];
}
}
when i comment
this.zIndexCurrent = this.zIndexStack.pop();
this.__mask.style.zIndex = this.zIndexStack[this.zIndexStack.length -1];
the error gone, but the pop up window won't close.


3. i got error to in line :
f.delete();
error message : missing name after. operator

can u suggest me the solution?
Thx

What version are you using? I tried this with 3.7 and did not get any
error.

The file.delete seems to have an issue conflicting with the JavaScript
delete operator. You will either have to implement your delete
operation in a Java Event Handler or just write a class that deletes the
file and add it to the birt classpath and call it from your script.

For Java event handlers read over this:

I use BIRT Viewer 3.7 and Eclipse Helios 2.6.2 for the design.
i try to describe what i found when i tried to debug it, maybe you can find hint.
like I said, i thought i got error in hide function
hide: function()
{
if(this.zIndexStack.length == 1)
{
this._updateElements(this._baseElements, true);
Element.hide( this.__mask );
this.zIndexStack.pop();
this.zIndexCurrent = this.zIndexBase;
}
else
{
this.zIndexCurrent = this.zIndexStack.pop();
this.__mask.style.zIndex = this.zIndexStack[this.zIndexStack.length -1];
}
}

I alert this.zIndexStack.length, the result is 0
I alert this.zIndexCurrent, the result is undefined.

For Java event handlers, I don't quite understand.
but i'll try to learn it first

Thanks

Instead of modifying the viewer can you add a text element to the report
and set its type to html and enter the following:

<script language="JavaScript">
function wPrint()
{
birtEventDispatcher.broadcastEvent( birtEvent.__E_PRINT );

var pdfrad = document.getElementById("printAsPDF");
pdfrad.checked = true;
var btndv = document.getElementById("printReportDialogokButton");
var bnar=btndv.getElementsByTagName("input");
var btn = bnar[0];
btn.click();

}
function printDelay()
{
setTimeout("wPrint()", 1000);
}
printDelay();
</script>

Hi Jason,
when I run the report in Eclipse, it got no error,
but when i run in tomcat with BIRT Viewer, i got error "birtEventDispatcher is undefined".
actually what you suggest is true, but i want the window print only show when user click the print button.
Thx, sorry for disturbing you again.

I just tried this in 3.7 with the viewer deployed to tomcat and using
the frameset mapping and it worked fine. Are you using the /frameset
mapping?

Hi
It works on my environment
Do you have also script to atomatically execute PDF export?
Regards

Instead of modifying the viewer can you add a text element to the report
and set its type to html and enter the following:

<script language="JavaScript">
function wPrint()
{
birtEventDispatcher.broadcastEvent( birtEvent.__E_PRINT );

var pdfrad = document.getElementById("printAsPDF");
pdfrad.checked = true;
var btndv = document.getElementById("printReportDialogokButton");
var bnar=btndv.getElementsByTagName("input");
var btn = bnar[0];
btn.click();

}
function printDelay()
{
setTimeout("wPrint()", 1000);
}
printDelay();
</script>

Thomas,

How do you see this working? Do you want anytime the report is opened in the viewer that it automatically opens it in pdf?

Jason

Hi Jason,
Yes I'd like that when BIRT Viewer windows opens with report preview, immediately system execute export PDF.
Similar to function that you create for print, but spending export PDF.
Thanks

It would probably be better to use something like jQuery for both of these features but you could try something like:

<script>
function wPrint()
{

birtEventDispatcher.broadcastEvent( birtEvent.__E_EXPORT_REPORT );

var btndv =document.getElementById("exportReportDialogokButton");
var bnar=btndv.getElementsByTagName("input");
var btn = bnar[0];

var formatselect = document.getElementById("exportFormat");
selectedItem = formatselect[formatselect.selectedIndex];
selectedItem.value = "pdf";
btn.click();

}
function printDelay()
{
var _this = this;
setTimeout(function() { wPrint(); }, 3000);
}
printDelay();


</script>

I the only thing I do not like is putting in the delays.

You could also modify the viewer js files to add the logic or register a new js function to listen for the event and act on it then.

Hi Jason,
your code work correctly. Thanks
What do you means when you told "I the only thing I do not like is putting in the delays"

I don't understand your advice to use "jQuery". Can I use it to bypass BIRT Viewer and create immediately a PDF File?

I meant this delay:
setTimeout(function() { wPrint(); }, 3000);

What I meant was to include jQuery and use a callback instead. You could also just try body onload event.
