Introduction

The report logic is similar to CSS logic:

  1. Create a Report oblect .
    • A report contain a list of ReportEements (paragraphs, texts, tables and other)
    • The element can contains other sub-elements
    • For each element you can add a class that is used for rendering the element
  2. Create a StyleSheet
  3. You preview and print a report by passing the Report and the Stylesheet object.

Each report sturcture has:

  • a ReportElement list
  • a Header Element list
  • a Footer Element list
// Report
var report = Banana.Report.newReport("Report title");
report.addParagraph("Hello World !!!", "styleHelloWorld");

// Styles
var stylesheet = Banana.Report.newStyleSheet();
var style = stylesheet.addStyle(".styleHelloWorld");
style.setAttribute("font-size", "96pt");
style.setAttribute("text-align", "center");
style.setAttribute("margin-top", "50mm");

var style2 = stylesheet.addStyle("@page");
style2.setAttribute("size", "landscape");

// Print preview
Banana.Report.preview(report, stylesheet);

 

Methods

newReport(title)

Creates a report with title 'title'. The returned object is of type Banana.Report.ReportElement.

To the report you can then add the desired elements, like paragraphs, texts, tables, and so on that construct the structure of the report.

 

newStyleSheet()

Creates an empty stylesheet. The returned object is of type Banana.Report.ReportStyleSheet

To the stylesheet you can add the styles that format the report.

 

newStyleSheet(fileName)

Creates a stylesheet from a file. The file has the same syntax as CSS stylesheets. The file path is relative to the script's path. The path can't contain a '..'' (parent directory).

The returned object is of type Banana.Report.ReportStyleSheet.

You can add further styles to the returned stylesheet.

var reportStyles = Banana.Report.newStyleSheet("styles.css");

*** Content of file styles.css ***
.helloWorldStyle
{
font-size: 96pt;
text-align: center;
margin-top: 50mm;
}

@page
{
size: landscape;
}
*** End of file styles.css ***

Introduced in 7.0.5.0

 

preview(report, stylesheet)

Opens a print preview Dialog and shows the report with the given stylesheet. 

The page orientation is given by the stylesheet. The default size and orientation is taken from the default printer, or can be set through the stylesheet.

// Set landscape orientation
stylesheet.addStyle("@page {size: landscape}");

// Set page size and orientation
stylesheet.addStyle("@page {size: A5 lanscape}");

 

Example: Hello world

// Simple test script using Banana.Report
//
// @id = ch.banana.script.report.helloworld
// @version = 1.0
// @pubdate = 2014-02-12
// @publisher = Banana.ch SA
// @description = Report Hello world
// @task = app.command
// @outputformat = none
// @inputdatasource = none
// @timeout = -1
//

function exec( string) {
   var report = Banana.Report.newReport("Report title");
   report.addParagraph("Hello World !!!", "helloWorldStyle");

   var stylesheet = Banana.Report.newStyleSheet();
   var style = stylesheet.addStyle(".helloWorldStyle");
   style.setAttribute("font-size", "96pt");
   style.setAttribute("text-align", "center");
   style.setAttribute("margin-top", "50mm");

   var style2 = stylesheet.addStyle("@page");
   style2.setAttribute("size", "landscape");

   Banana.Report.preview(report, stylesheet);
}
