Info Node

An Info Node is the object referenced by a Reference Box to print layout-specific information.

Info Node (InfoNode type) is a layout container, found in the References group in the Tool Box view.

The Info Node helps resolve some layout-dependent problems by enabling the use of references. You populate the Info Node with a value that you want to print later in the report using a Reference Box. This node is invisible and does not consume space in the layout. For further details about how Reference Boxes and Info Nodes work together, see Print a value from the previous page.


The Value is stored for querying by a Reference Box. The value is of type String. If the data type of the field being referenced does not correspond to a String, the value must be converted.
