Output as HTML (C#)

Set up and configure output to HTML from your reporting application.


This code snippet uses the HTMLRenderer class:
// code snippet starts

String designFile = "OrderReport.4rp";
String outputFilename = "SalesList.html";

FormatHandler handler = new FormatWriter(outputFilename);
HTMLRenderer renderer = new HTMLRenderer(handler);
renderer.ignoreColumnAlignment =true;
renderer.embedImages =true;
FourRpLayouter report = new FourRpLayouter(designFile, renderer);

//Run the report 
report.debugLevel = 9;

// some code omitted - view full source in demo


// open the file

// code snippet ends
In this example:
  • A FormatHandler object named handler is defined using the FormatWriter class, taking the name of the output file as its input.
  • An object named renderer is defined using the HTMLRenderer class, taking handler as input.
  • The ignoreColumnAlignment property is set to true, allowing column alignment of items to be ignored for a more compact representation.
  • The embedImages property activates image embedding in the report document.
  • FourRpLayouter report = new FourRpLayouter(designFile, renderer) creates the FourRpLayouter object for the specified report file that outputs a HTML file with the provided name.

For the full list of properties and methods for this renderer class, refer to the Genero Report Writer .NET API documentation.
