You can add arcs, ovals, boxes, round boxes and lines to banded objects in page reports, and add lines to banded objects in web reports.
To insert a drawing object into a report:
- Select Insert > Drawing Objects, then select the drawing object (Line, Box, Arc, Oval, or Round Box) you want to insert on the submenu.
- Move your mouse pointer to the insertion point, drag the mouse button till you are satisfied with the drawing object's size and proportions. The selected drawing object will then be inserted into your report at the specified position. Note that only boxes, horizontal or vertical lines can be presented in Page Report Studio.
An interesting attribute of a box is that if it spans a group the box will automatically grow in size to encompass the objects in the group. For example, you draw a box starting in a group header panel through the detail panel and ending in the group footer panel. At runtime the box will grow to include all of the detail items inside the box.
