Report export options

Export options are set automatically for a report in a generated application.

By default, report export actions are bound to 4 buttons in the generated user interface toolbar: PDF, HTML, XLS, and RTF.

When the user clicks on a button, the action to export the data to the selected format is called. For example, clicking on HTML exports the data to an HTML file. Depending on the front-end, there are different options for handling the file:
  • With Genero Desktop Client, it is opened by the default program associated with the format on the system, or the program you select if there is no default.
  • With Genero Browser Client, a new browser tab is opened. Depending on your browser configuration, the document is either opened in the browser or downloaded.
