A label is for printing static text, i.e. text that is printed exactly like it is displayed during report design.

 

The following options are available:

 

Text:

This is the text that should be printed. You can only type in one line of text. Memos can be used for multi-line text.

 

Rotation:

Use this to rotate your text. Rotation can be set to anything between 0 and 360 degrees. 90 degree means displaying the text vertically for example.

 

Font:

Selects the font for the report element

 

Color:

Defines the background color for the report element (the font color can be set with the "Font" button).

 

Alignment:

The report element's text can be aligned left, right or centered.

 

Automatic word-wrap:

Set this option if you want the text to wrap to the next line if it does not fit into the given width (similar to a word processor software).

 

Transparent:

The report element's background will not be printed if this option is activated. This way you can place text on top of an image for example, without hiding the image under a white box with text.

 

Autosize width:

This option resizes the report element to make room for its complete text. If "Autosize" is not set and the text is larger than the element size, text will be clipped off.

 

Autostretch height:

This option is for report elements with multiple lines, e.g. memo fields. The height of the elements will be stretched to make room for all lines. If needed, the report band will be stretched too.
