Role (fieldRole)

The Role property specifies the role of the Field in the schema: whether it is part of a report field or label, and whether it is part of a tabular design.

This property is set when you drag an item from the data view to the report design document, and depends on the placement specification icon chosen in the toolbar.

Type: Enum.

Valid values:

  • FormFieldTitle
  • FormFieldValue
  • TableColumnTitle
  • TableColumnValue
  • UntitledTableColumnValue

This property does not have a default value.

You can find the Role property in the Field Properties category of the Properties view.
