NamePossible ValuesDescription
Culture
UserDefined
A culture that can be used to reformat input dates and values. You can set this to a different culture so that values from Input elements are returned in that culture. This can be useful when the database expects date and numeric values that are not in the invariant format. This attribute is deprecated. In most cases it is best to set up the database or database client account to use an "english" culture. This attribute is not used for dates when InputDateReformat is used. The culture is specified as a string, like "en-us". To see a list of cultures, open IE, select Tools, Internet Options, Languages, then Add. The default culture is the "invariant" culture, which is basically US-English.
DefaultInputDateFormat
UserDefined
The default input date format used when a an Input.Date element does not have its own Format attribute set.
DefaultInputDateReformat
UserDefined
Sets a default value for all InputDateReformat attributes. These are available with InputDate elements, which allow the user to enter dates. InputDateReformat reformats the date when the InputDate is returned and referenced as an @Request token. InputDateReformat also alters the format of the @Date tokens, which is otherwise yyyy-mm-dd.

DefaultInputTimeFormat
UserDefined
The default input time format used when a an Input.Time element does not have its own Format attribute set.
DefaultInputTimeReformat
UserDefined
Sets a default value for all InputTimeReformat attributes. These are available with InputTime elements, which allow the user to enter a time. InputTimeReformat reformats the time when the InputTime is returned and referenced as an @Request token. For details on the various time formats, visit: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vblr7/html/vafmtuserdefineddateformats.asp
FirstDayOfFiscalYear
%
Used when calculating dates and quarters for fiscal calendars. The value must be in the format of MM/DD. For example if your fiscal year begins on October, before the start of the calendar year, enter 10/01. If fiscal year starts after the calendar year, add a plus sign. For example, if fiscal year starts March 15, enter 03/15+. The default value is 01/01.
FirstDayOfWeek
UserDefined
Changes how the first day of the week is determined for the @Date tokens that return first and last days of the week, such as @Date.ThisWeekStart~ and @Date.ThisWeekEnd~. By default, Sunday is the first day of the week. You may set this attribute to a number representing a different day of the week. 0=Sunday 1=Monday 2=Tuesday 3=Wednesday 4=Thursday 5=Friday 6=Saturday
JavaFontFolder
UserDefined
Identifies the folder where TrueType fonts are located for PDF exports. The folder is required for PDF exports with fonts that contain characters that are not in the ISO8859_1 character set. In Windows this is usually something like C:\Windows\Fonts. In Linux this could be something like /usr/local/share/fonts/ttfonts. This only applies to the Java version.
MetricPrefixString
UserDefined
Sets user defined values for Metric Prefix characters. Setting the format attribute to "mp" formats numbers with "metric prefix".To format 1,234,567 as "$1.23M", use Format "$#.00mp". Supported metric prefixes are from 1000^6 to 1000^-6 The default string of characters from 1000^-6 to 1000^6 is "a,f,p,n,µ,m,k,M,G,T,P,E". You can replace this string with a comma separated string of characters that would represent this format.
RebuildJavaFontFolderPropertiesFile
True
False
This attribute is for Java only and works in conjunction with the JavaFontFolder attribute. The JavaFontFolder attribute triggers the creation of the rdTemplate/pd4fonts.properties file. When the RebuildJavaFontFolderPropertiesFile attribute is set to True or left blank then this file will be automatically rebuilt every time the web server is restarted. If the file is not present it will be rebuilt regardless of the setting. If this attribute is set to False then this file will not be automatically regenerated. The default is True.
UserCulture
UserDefined
Normally, the user's culture is obtained from the browser's settings. When not blank, the UserCulture attribute over-rides the browser's culture setting with another value. UserCulture can be set with a token value, such as @Session or @Request. The culture is specified as a string, like "en-us". To see a list of cultures, open IE, select Tools, Internet Options, Languages, then Add.
