    Default Flex in reports

    Bit of a newbie so sorry if this is the wrong forum. Did not know if this a desginer or engine issue. Also not sure of the engine version.

    I am running BI Suite 1.7RC1 and Designer 1.7RC1

    Is there a way to embed flex (or flash) into a report?

    I am looking for meter (bar) and dials, which do not seem to exist. I have some already in flex and would like to use them.

    Thanks
    Phil

    Not in this version. Starting with 0.8.10 (=platform 1.8) we opened up the reporting system so that you can inject your own HTML-fragments into the elements. At that point, you are able to inject your flash or whatever you want into the generated output.

    However, we do not interpret what you put in there, so fame or blame of using or abusing this feature is all yours

    The current Pentaho-Platform 1.7 uses the Reporting-Engine 0.8.9, which has no such abilities. Therefore you are not able to use any of the new features.

    The ability to inject arbitrary HTML-code in the reports was introduced in version 0.8.10 - therefore the Pentaho-Platform 2.0 will be the next platform release supporting it.
