6.4. Styles

A report can define a number of styles. Once defined, they can be associated with report objects in order to provide base configuration for various visual aspects. This allows to create reports with modular styling that can be easily adapted to new requirements. JasperAssistant groups these definitions under a single Styles node in the Outline View. New styles can be added by using the context menu associated to this node.

Styles can have associated conditional styles. Conditional styles allow to change the style when an associated boolean expression is evaluated to true. Conditional styles can be added by right-clicking on a defined style in the Outline View and selecting the Add Conditional Style action.
