Properties Panel

The Properties panel displays the properties of the currently selected item.

Report Items List

The Report Items List appears at the top of the panel. The list contains the names of all items in the report, including data sources. Report items can be selected either by selecting the item in the layout, or by selecting the item in the Report Items List.


All report items (ie. controls, bands, report) have properties. All properties appear in the Properties panel. By default, all properties are organized by groups. You can set how properties are organized by clicking either the Group Properties or Alphabetize Properties buttons. The Search button allows you to search for a particular property.

When grouped, properties are grouped by function. Below is a description of all the property groups:

Not all property groups will appear for all report items.
