JavaScript in Report
« on: July 22, 2022, 03:54:25 AM »
Hi Guys,

It is possible to bring JavaScript into a report?

This is to show a JavaScript graph.

No personal experience.

It might be worth looking into the Stimulsoft report engine.
There have been some clarionlive webinars on it, including one showing a template and mentioning a NetTalk app: https://www.clarionlive.com/BrowseEpisodes/ww!551

No, you can't put JavaScript in a Clarion Report, because
a) the clarion report engine does not support it and
b) JavaScript is a language, not an output

what you meant to ask was - can you put a graph in a report? The answer to that is yes - construct the graph in JavaScript - perhaps in Chrome Explorer, or externally to your program, save that image as a PNG file, and then include the PNG on the report.

Cheers
Bruce
