Morph an element

Pentaho Report Designer

Part Number

Any data-driven element can be transformed into another type of data-driven element.

For instance, if you created and configured a date field and you later realize that it actually needs to be a number field, you can easily change the element type with the morph feature by following this process:
  1. Select the element you want to morph.
  2. Go to the Format menu, then select the Morph sub-menu.
  3. In the Morph sub-menu, select the element type you would like to change to.
The element type should now be changed to the one you selected.
