Hi all,
i' ve searched on this forum, on how to add a radio button on a report, i' ve followed the suggest to add this item bye using a text field with html content. But when i preview the report, the radio button isn' t rendered, and so i' ve decided to add a new report item, i' ve searched and found some guide but seems to be outdated. Finally i've found the sample chapter of Integrating and extending BIRT, where is explained how to extend it, but with no luck, becuase when i need to declare the exported package of this plugin, the dialog choice from runtime tab of plugin manifest definition is empty.

If someone here, exentend BIRT component palette and can suggest me an update guide point on how to develop the new reportitem, i appreciate the aid.

thanks, Patrick.

Here's an article about creating a custom element: http://www.eclipse.org/articles/article.php?file=Article-BIRT-ExtensionTutorial1/index.html

What issue are you having getting a radio button to display in your text box?

Tnx for replying Michael, i'm reading as soon as possible the article that you have linked. My problem is related to display the radio button on the report preview, if i try the preview tab on report editor, i see the radio button, but if i preview the report in pdf the radio button isn' t displayed.

tnx Patrick.

Yeah. The PDF output doesn't support checkbox objects, like that. Even the html button palette object in Actuate BIRT doesn't output to PDF. You might have to look into modifying the PDF emitter to make this happen, if it's possible.

Tnx for reply Michael, reading your answer has suggested me an idea, i can put the radio button as image on pdf. I' m only need to found a way on how to grab the image of JRadioButton, and put that on the pdf.

Can you suggest me a way to render the radio button on excel file.

best regards, Patrick.

With the standard XLS emitter, you can't do images, but if you were to use a plug-in, like:

http://www.birt-exchange.com/be/marketplace/app-showcase/?app=102

You could use the image idea for XLS, too.

To install the plug-in, in the designer, you'd just need to drop it into your plugins folder. There should be a readme or instructions available, with the download, too, I think. For the second question, I haven't tried it. You'd most likely be looking at writing your own / modifying an existing XLS emitter to get the output as you're wanting.
