This report element is used to display various system data like current time or date, page number etc.

 

Available options:

 

Text:

This text will be displayed before the actual system data. For example you can use the text "Report printed on: " when printing the current date.

 

Type:

The type of system data to print. The following types are available:

·        Date: the current date when printing the report
