This blog series takes a look back at the past week in the forums, recalling how active they were and highlights some of the questions asked that seem to frequent the forums or other interesting topics. We're in the last month of the quarter, now, and the forums are as busy as ever. This could be a year for the record books! As always, thanks to those users who help answer questions! It is a great help to the community!
The unanswered post from this past week is about [url=http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/forum/index.php/topic/24808-dynamic-image-size/]dynamically changing the height of an image elemnt[/url]. The poster wants to change the height/width of the images in their report based on the attribute in their XML dataSource. If anyone has a suggestion or solution for this. Please post in the thread.
The next post I'll cover for this week is about [url=http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/forum/index.php/topic/24813-how-can-i-add-help-texttooltip-to-some-measurer-celss-in-cross-tabs-using-java/]setting up a tooltip in a crosstab[/url]. The poster wanted to be able to add a tooltip to their crosstab, using java. A solution is provided that shows how this can be done by using HTML script tags in a text element.
The last topic I'll cover from last week is about [url=http://www.birt-exchange.org/org/forum/index.php/topic/24826-stick-grid-to-bottom-of-last-page-of-a-report/]sticking an element to the bottom of the last page[/url]. This is a highly requested feature that is not available, yet. A link to one of the possible workarounds is available in the thread. A link to an enhancement request is also in the thread if you'd like to "vote" for the enhancement.
