Setting this attribute to "True" makes this field in the output PDF file Read-Only. This attribute is ignored if the FlattenFields attribute is set to "True". * The default value is "False".
Allows a string to be formatted in various ways, especially for numeric and date values. Specifies formatting characteristics for the data. This attribute has been borrowed from the Microsoft Visual Basic Format function. For more information: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/59bz1f0h(VS.71).aspx For dates, the non-specific formats, such as "General Date", "Short Time", etc., are converted according to the browser's international setttings. Also, for very large reports, the non-specific formats perform better. There are also some special formats. "<" and ">" change strings to lower and upper case. "Expanded Spaces" preserves space characters that would otherwise be collapsed by the web browser. "HTML" preserves HTML tags so that they are not encoded - they are embedded rather than shown. "Preserve Line Feeds" preserves line feed and cariage return characters so that the following characters appear on a new line. "mp" formats numbers with the "metric prefix". To format 1,234,567 as "$1.23M", use Format "$#.00mp". Supported metric prefixes are from 1000^6 to 1000^-6 For more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_prefix "mpsx" formats the value with x number of significant figures in addition to the metric prefix. So a value of 123456, with format set to mps3 will return 123k. "qq" returns the number of the quarter when the value being formatted represents a date. To return the year and quarter together like "2010 Q1", set the format to "yyyy Qqq". "fyy" and "fyyyy" return the fiscal year. "fqq" returns the fiscal quarter. The fiscal year start date may be configured in the settings' Globalization element. "ww" returns the number of the week. The first day of the week may be configured in the settings' Globalization element.
(Required) The ID attribute is a pervasive attribute that uniquely identifies an element within a definition file. The ID needs to be a unique value within the definition.
