Each report design document can include settings regarding the output format, rendering settings, page range to include in the output, and image settings. These values are set when a report is first created, and can be altered by the report designer. See The Report output for details about setting these values within the report design document (.4rp).

Each output format is implemented as a class, corresponding to a specific renderer. These classes are part of the Fourjs.Report.Runtime package. For each class, methods can be used to configure the output format.

For the full list of methods for each of the renderer classes, refer to the Genero Report Writer .NET API documentation.
