Label Wizard utility template

Top  Previous  Next

This wizard creates a report procedure from an existing dictionary file definition that includes a defined report label layout.

 

After the introduction screen, you are presented with the following options:

 

Theme Selection:

Theme

Select from the drop list of themes. Themes are groups of settings that control colors, fonts, icons, backgrounds, positions and much more - for Frame, Browse, Form and Report procedures. You will have the opportunity to create a new theme as you progress through the wizard. Select a starting or default theme here.

Label Group

Select a label group from the drop list. A label group contains the most popular classes of labels (Avery, Card Products, InkJet, etc.). If your type of label is not listed here, select Others.

Label Type

Select a label type from the drop list. A label type normally corresponds to its product code.

Save Settings

After you have selected a theme, you have the option to save these settings for any future applications that you create.

 

What name should be used as the label of the report procedure?

Type the procedure name.

 

Which file do you want to report?

Press the ellipsis (...) button to select a file from the dictionary.

 

A report can use a single record key, or can run in record order. Enter a key below, or leave the field blank to run in record order.

Press the ellipsis (...) button to select a sort key. Leave the field blank to specify no sort key.

 

Select the fields that you want the report to use?

Build your report in this list box by adding and deleting fields from the selected file. You can also modify the properties of the fields regarding column labels, picture tokens, and justification. Use the arrow buttons to specify the order that each field will appear on the report.

 

Customization

Wizards have different "look and feel" settings and actions called themes, which can be modified and saved for use in other applications. Themes are set and controlled by a variety of customization options.

Press the Next button to accept the selected theme’s settings, or press the customization button to modify it at this time.

 

Overwrite existing procedures

Check this box to overwrite existing procedures with the same names. Clear the box to preserve existing procedures.

 

On the last dialog, the Finish button is enabled. If you are satisfied with your answers, press the Finish button. You also have the option here to Save Changes, where any changes to customization options are saved to the theme that you selected at the start of the wizard. If you wish, you can opt to Save to a new theme.
