PDF Report

By default, Iron Speed Designer’s Application places an “PDF Report” button in Table Report panels, such as is found on a Table Report page.

Included data rows

Only the rows in the currently displayed data set are included in the PDF report.  This is convenient for end-users who perform a search using the Search control and wish to include only the data subset that matches the search.

Included data columns

Rows include all data fields displayed in the associated table control; fields that are not displayed are not included.  There are several caveats:

Column Type


Date fields

Date fields are included as per their display format strings and are shown as they are displayed in the Table Report panel.

The default format is m/d/yyyy

Foreign key fields

Foreign key fields are included as shown in the table panel.  If the “display as” is set for the field, then the selected text field will be used instead of the underlying key value.

Password fields

Password fields are included as shown in the table panel.

Large text fields

Large text fields, such as the Memo field in Microsoft Access and the nText data type in Microsoft SQL Server, are shown as text strings.

Binary and image fields

Binary fields, such as Image and BLOB's (binary large object), are not included.

The column order in the report is the same as the column order in the database table schema.

The data includes column headings in the first row of the report.
