RPTRender Run Time Switches

The Report Renderer supports switches that enable values to be passed to it at run time. These switches and a description of their use are provided below:

Establishes the connection to the database

-databaseURL=

Connects to the database through the ODBC connection

-databaseURL=odbc:///

The database username

-username=

The database user’s password

-passwd=

Specify the name of the report you want to load from the database

-loadfromdb=

Indicates that no username and password are required as is typically the case when this information is defined in the ODBC connection

-noAuth

The presence of this switch simply opens the operating system’s print dialogue immediately upon opening the Report Renderer

-print

The value of this switch is the name of the printer that is selected automatically when the operating system’s print dialogue is opened. This example, -printerName="Laser6l" will automatically select the client computer’s printer with the name Laser6l.

-printerName=

Establishes a parameter, its type and its value. For example -param=Caller_ID:string='3' establishes a parameter called Caller_ID of type string with a value of ‘3’. This example, -param=show_inactive:bool='Y' establishes a parameter called “showInactive” of type boolean with a value of ‘Y’ -print

-param=

Specify you want to print results to .PDF format

-pdf

Specify the .PDF file location and file name

-outpdf=

The presence of this switch simply closes the Report Renderer after the user prints or cancels printing.

-close

You specify the -param option once for each parameter. For example:

rptrender.exec -param=startDate:string'04/01/2008'
-param=endDate:string='04/30/2008'
