    Type Property (Parameter)
    In This Topic

    Gets or sets a value that determines the type of input control to be created to collect the parameter value from the user.

    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Property Type As Parameter.DataType
    public Parameter.DataType Type {get; set;}

    Property Value

    A DataType enumeration value that determines the type of control to be created for the parameters input dialog.
    Remarks
    ActiveReports creates the parameters intput dialog for the user dynamically based on the number of parameters and their type.  By default, all parameters are considered strings.  You can specify a Boolean control (checkbox) or a Date (calendar) control instead of a standard textbox.
    Example
    private void SectionReport1_ReportStart(object sender, System.EventArgs eArgs)
    {
        this.Parameters[0].DefaultValue = "Germany";
        this.Parameters[0].Key = "country";
        this.Parameters[0].Prompt = "Country: ";
        this.Parameters[0].Tag = "some extra data";
        this.Parameters[0].Type = GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReportModel.Parameter.DataType.String;
    }
    Private Sub SectionReport1_ReportStart(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.ReportStart
        Me.Parameters(0).DefaultValue = "Germany"
        Me.Parameters(0).Key = "country"
        Me.Parameters(0).Prompt = "Country: "
        Me.Parameters(0).Tag = "Some extra data"
        Me.Parameters(0).Type = GrapeCity.ActiveReports.SectionReportModel.Parameter.DataType.String
    End Sub
