Besides editing reports and library components with the design panel in Logi JReport Designer, you can also edit them with the Design API. By creating a Designer instance in your Java program, you can design and modify a report or library component with the methods provided by the Design API.
Logi JReport Design API fully realizes designing a report or library component programmatically. That is, with the Design APIs you can edit the layout of a report or library component all in code. You can change the property values, or modify the report or library component by inserting objects such as tables, crosstabs, chart, DBFields, formulas, labels, images and so on.
For detailed information about using the Design API, refer to Design API in the Logi JReport Designer User's Guide.
