Global and Template Parameter

  • Last update:  2023-06-14
  • I. Overview

    1) Parameter is a type of variable and the value is determined by users. The values of parameters are used to filter report data (if used with filters). In FineReport, you can bind a parameter with a widget on the parameter pane. In this way, during the preview, report users can utilize the widgets to define parameter values and filter data; and this process is called parameter query.

    2) Global parameter: It can be used by all templates in the same report project.

    3) Template parameter: It can only be used by current template. If multiple templates have parameters with the same name , the parameter values will not affect each other.

    4) In a template, if there exists a template parameter that shares the same name with a global parameter, the system only recognizes the template parameter.
