Format Document Data

This document describes how to format dynamic textual data in a Snap document.

To format report data, do the following.

  2. In the Field tab, click the Properties button.
  3. In the invoked drop-down menu, click the ellipsis button for the Format String property.
  4. Specify the required formatting in the invoked FormatString Editor, and click OK to exit the dialog.


Snap supports both standard and custom .NET format strings.
