Feature Enhancement requests: Data Report

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi, i would like to seuugest features to your "Data Report":

Allow auto-size columns:
either as a setting or at the top where the refresh button is.



Allow Multi-selection copy:
Now i can select a line and Ctrl-C it to Clipboard. I'd love to Crtl and Shift Select multiple Lines.


A box selection would be also nice (where you hold ctr-Shift and click a box and then a box with this fields is selected:
col4 - col8
row 17 - row 25

Parameters:
add a selection (List, Drop down,...) where we can enter pre-defined values a user just selects to get the final query.

Add a parameter input method at the top where the refresh button is.
e.g Buttons showing the current parameters:
[Param1: blue] [Param2: Datacenter1]

Date Formats:
Please support international date formats! The US Format is so horrible and absolutly unlogical, everybody outside US and GB hates it!

Right click Export to [anything] doesn't work when Parameters are selected. At least it brings no file save dialog.

Correction to my last point:
The Export issue doesn't come from the params but from a Date field.

Hi,
I have entered a todo in our system. I will see what we can do.

Hello Peter,

I've been working on the suggested enhancements for the data reports and it's going well. The only issue is I've been unable to reproduce the "Export to" problem. What do you mean by the date field "causing" the export issue? Is it simply unable to export once you have any kind of date field in the report?

Regards,

Hello Peter,

Most of the enhancements you suggested will be coming for data reports. Here's a list of them:
- Fit column width to content checkbox to change it in real time (auto-size columns)
- The computer's locale will be used to determine the date format
- Multi-selection copy
- Open selection in new window right click menu: You can select any amount of rows and open them in a new window which makes it easier to export the data you want
- Option in the data report's settings to allow viewing and modifying the parameters directly in the embedded data report

These changes will be available in the next version of RDM.

Regards,

Hubert Mireault

Hi Hubert,
Thank you for the quick implementation!! Really great! :-)

A few enhancement requests:
1.1.
A Context Menu "Copy selectes Lines to Clipboard" would be nice.
1.2.
Could we also have a block selection? Like in excel, select col3-row5 to col 9-row15
1.3.
Export to... doesn't always work for me (it get ignored completely)
1.4.
Open Selection in new window has a bit of a strange behaviour:

When you right clik it the context menu appears, but the (new selection) window moves to the background.


2.
Could we have support for the SQL "ORDER BY" or a customizable default sort?
If i try to use a @paramX i get an error from the attached screenshot.

3.1.
Variable input from Header required a click on the refresh button, enter or a second refresh button next to the input field would be nice.

3.2.
Could we have a checkbox to make the Fit columns.. the default?
How about a Pre-Selection (Dropdown or Listbox) for pre-definable values?

For thes query i'd like to have a set of values:
Select * from View WHERE InstallStatus LIKE @Param1 ORDER BY Server
@Param1 should have one of these values which i would like to select from the report header:
active
planning
removed
...

4.1.
The margin between Header input and the data tab is a bit too large.
4.2.

We have a tab header showing the number of rows. Maybe the "Fit columns and refresh button would be good at the same level as this tab (saving space)
