Re: [birt-dev] Birt with editable fields

Hello,

thank you for your reply, here comes additionnal explications for
editable fields :

By default, BIRT is unable to generate editable fields for reports in
PDF format, ie fields whose content can be edited directly on the
final report. A patch has been necessary to make this feature
available.
In this patch, the emitter for generating PDF reports
"org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emiter.pdf" was patched by changing
only two classes: PDFRender.java and PDFPage.java. These have been
amended to insert the following two features.
To insert an editable field in a BIRT model, we have to use the "line
through" style on an selected element, this style is located next to
the "underline", "italic" and "bold" styles in BIRT. For example, if
the model has an element of type text with the value "Suzuki", in the
generation that will produce an editable field with predefined value
"Suzuki".

See in the attachments, an example element before the generation and after.
If you have additionnal questions, I am available to answer ;)

Have a nice day,

So, I modified the BIRT runtime source (4.3.0) in order to create editable fields when we use the style 'linethrough' in the templates files. I modified the classes PDFRender.java and PDFPage.java at the location org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.emiter.pdf.
