The Hidden Items Tab

Follow

The Hidden Items view houses formatting tools and a selection of ILLiad Web Reports that you can click and drag to add to your Reports Group. Formatting tools change the look and layout of the page. These tools are used by clicking, dragging and dropping them where you want them on the page. The layout options are dynamic and quite limitless and it is a good idea to play with the tools to see just how many options you have for creating new layout designs. For instance, you can add an empty space item to the bottom of the page, click and drag to enlarge it, and then drop a report in the space. You can move and drop items most anywhere; if a move is not allowed, a circle with a line through it will appear warning you the move is not allowed. The remaining items are fields from database tables that you can click and add to your client forms as well as your web forms. A partial list of items is below.
