|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.
|ShowModes makes it possible to hide elements for some reports. Leave ShowModes blank for the element to always appear. Set it to None and it will be hidden. (You can make it appear later with an Action.ShowElement.) Set it to your own string value to have it appear only when the report's ShowModes includes that value. ShowModes can contain multiple, comma-delimited values.
Built-in ShowModes can be set on individual elements, without having to set a corresponding value in the report-level "Default ShowModes" list.To use built in ShowModes, set it to one of the pre defined values like
"rdBrowser","rdExport","rdExportPdf" etc from the dropdown list.
eg - Set ShowModes = "rdBrowser" for elements that should only appear in the browser and should be excluded from exports.Set ShowModes = "rdExport" for elements that should be exported but not shown in the browser.
|The StyleSheet attribute identifies a cascading stylesheet file (.css) usually located in the _SupportFiles folder.
|Themes automatically add style and color to reports. Each theme also comes with a list of preset classes that can be applied to an element’s class attribute for additional style or formatting.
Style sheets can be used in concert with themes. Setting attributes such as color in a chart element will override the themes color if needed.
