Report and Data Item Triggers

In reports, triggers are typically used to perform calculations and verification. Triggers let you control how data is selected and retrieved in a more complex and effective way than you can achieve by using properties.

Report Triggers

The following table lists triggers that apply to the report itself.

Trigger Runs
OnInitReport Trigger When the report is loaded.
OnPreReport Trigger Before the report is run, but after the RequestPage has been run.
OnPostReport Trigger After the report has run, but not if the report was stopped manually or by the QUIT Method (Report, XMLport).

Data Item Triggers

The following table lists triggers that apply to each data item on the report.

Trigger Runs
OnPreDataItem Trigger Before the data item is processed, but after the associated variable has been initialized.
OnAfterGetRecord (Data Items) Trigger When a record has been retrieved from the table.
OnPostDataItem Trigger When the data item has been iterated for the last time.
