      • isRestricted

        public boolean isRestricted()
        Description copied from interface: SectionType
        A band that serves a specific purpose within a slotted parent should return "true" here. Plain elemetns and bands that can be freely combined should return false.

        Specified by:
        isRestricted in interface SectionType
        true, if the usage is restricted.
      • getDesignValue

        public Object getDesignValue​(ExpressionRuntime runtime,
                                     ReportElement element)
        Description copied from interface: ElementType
        Compute a design-time value. This value will be displayed when editing the element in the Pentaho Report Designer. If there is not enough data available to produce a sensible output, return a mock-object so that the user can interact with the element in a sensible fashion.

        When the element is called, all style and attribute expressions have been resolved and can be accessed via the normal static style and attribute accessor methods. If the content of your element depends on style information, the fully computed style must be retrieved via the .Element#getComputedStyle() method. The local style-sheet for the element may not have all information.

        getDesignValue in interface ElementType
        runtime - the expression runtime holding the current report state.
        element - the element.
        the computed value.

        public Object getValue​(ExpressionRuntime runtime,
                               ReportElement element)
        Description copied from interface: DataSource
        Returns the current value for the data source.
        Specified by:
        getValue in interface DataSource
