Report toolbar

Parent Previous Next

The report toolbar provides page navigation, zoom, refresh, search, export, and print functionality for reports that are rendered in the HTML rendering extension.

Print functionality is optional. When it is available, a Printer icon appears on the report toolbar. On first use, clicking the Printer icon downloads an ActiveX control that you must install. Once the control is installed, clicking the Printer icon opens a Print dialog box so that you can select from the printers that are configured for your computer. Print availability is determined by server settings and browser settings.

The following table describes commonly used features of the report toolbar. Each feature is identified by the control that you use to access it.
