TEXT OUTPUT creates basic text elements in an EASAP’s report. The text content can be entered in one of two ways, either directly in EASAP Builder using the Text: parameter or by reading it from a text file specified using the File: parameter. DORs are allowed in both the Text: parameter and in the contents of the file specified in the File: parameter. These DORs will allow you to do such things in your report as:
The File: parameter allows you to create text files that may be utilized as report templates to be used in the reports of other EASAPs.
Tip: For displaying numerical data, it is often useful to use DORs that include inline units and number formatting, for example: %Stress [MPa] 10.3f%
The Style: parameter helps offset titles and headings from graphics within your report.
Note: Since only one style is used per TEXT OUTPUT, multiple TEXT OUTPUT's are used to build a complete report body.
|File:||Name of file containing text to be displayed in EASA→Results page report. DORs allowed|
|Text:||Text to be displayed in EASA→Results page report. DORs allowed|
|Delimiter:||Character to act as delimiter before and after object references in DORs in File: or Text: above. default→%|
|Style:||HTML STYLE for text|
|Show if:||Logical expression, if TRUE then text shown, if FALSE then text NOT shown|
|Encoding:||Text encoding used in File: default→US-ASCII|
Note: Even though all parameters are labelled as optional, you must set a value for either the File: or Text: parameter. An error message will be displayed if neither of these two parameters are set.
