Title Page

Insert title page at beginning of report

Description

This component inserts a title page at the beginning of the report. You can use it in a report setup file as a child of a Chapter/Subsection component or by itself.

To use the Title Page component, you need to have a Chapter component in your report.

For PDF and HTML reports, you can use the Stylesheet Editor to position title page elements (for example, title, copyright, and images) anywhere on the front or reverse side of the title page in any order. You can specify the size, color, weight, and slant of text elements. For details, see Modify Title Page Properties.

Properties

The text fields on this property pane support the %<VariableName> notation. For more details, see %<VariableName> Notation on the Text component reference page.
