Elements Using the Condition Attribute
The following elements have a Condition attribute. In the first group, the Condition attribute simply determines whether or not the element and its child elements are rendered on the page:
- Column Cell
- Crosstab Table Label Column
- Data Table Column
- Local Data
- More Info Row
- More Info Row Column
- Include Frame (also called Sub-Report)
- Security Filter
- Set Session Variables
- Tooltip Panel
These two elements use the Condition attribute slightly differently to control other behaviors:
Conditional Class - the Condition attribute determines whether the
element's style sheet class is applied to all of its child elements that
do not have a class specified.
- Condition Filter - the Condition attribute determines which data layer result rows are kept and which are filtered out.
Many elements also have an Include Condition attribute, which
determines if the element is included in processing. Typically, elements
with this attribute are filter and column elements used to manipulate
Elements that have a value in their Condition or
Include Condition attributes are now indicated by a diamond
The diamond icon, shown circled above, appears in both the Element Tree (left) and in the Attributes Panel.
