Enabling Sort and Filter on Labels
By default, the Sort and Filter shortcut menu items are only available on fields (including DBField, formula and summary) in banded objects or tables in Page Report Studio. Logi JReport provides you with the option to enable the two menu items on labels in the banded objects or tables by binding them with fields.
- Select a label in a banded object or table.
- In the Report Inspector, locate the Bind Column property in the Others category.
- All the fields used in the banded object or table are listed in the property's value drop-down list. Select one to bind with the label.
- If you want to display the sort and filter buttons beside the label in Page Report Studio which provide another easy way for sorting and filtering, go on set the Sortable and Filterable properties of the label to true.
- Save the report and publish it to Logi JReport Server.
- Run the report in Page Report Studio and you can then right-click the label or the proper button beside the label to sort or filter the records of the bound field.
When a label is bound with a field, you can further specify the options that will be displayed on its Filter submenu. For details, see Setting Filter Options for an Object.
