Composite element example in Jaspersoft Reports

Hi,

Composite element allow to create a new element in the palette starting from one or more basic elements, and reuse them whenever you want in any report.

As shown in below image you can take basic elements like Text Field and Ellipse from palette. Right click on the selection of these two to create composite element and give required details(name, description and an icon with position to keep it on the palette).

(NOTE : Click on image to get the best view of content placed)

Composite element allows below actions(Edit, Export and Import)  in studio.

This way you can create a custom element in palette and use in a project if you have to re-use the code/design. i.e., this will give the flexibility of re-usability of design across reports. kinda a components based templates.

How is your palette looking in Jaspersoft Studio ?

Are you tired of easily finding the components of palette to design reports in jaspersoft studio?

You can use the combination of "large icons" with "Layout" as "Columns" instead of routine look and feel. As shown in below image, right click on any empty space in the window, let's say in "Basic Elements" section, right click anywhere and select "Use Large Icons" with  the combination of "Layout" as "Columns" and have an easy access to the components when you write some complex reports. !  



Cheers! Small things sometimes saves a bit time.

Hi, 

Expected output should be as shown in below image.
