Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v21.1.dll

Declaration

[SRCategory(ReportStringId.CatAppearance)]
[XRLocalizable(true)]
public virtual Font Font { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Font

A Font object that represents font settings including font face, size, and style attributes.

Remarks

The Font property specifies the font of the control’s XRControl.Text, while the text alignment is specified by the XRControl.TextAlignment property.

If the Font property’s value is not set for the current report control, its value is obtained from its parent, or a parent of its parent and so on. Similarly, the Font value of the current control is applied to all its child report controls (if there are any in its XRControl.Controls collection), if their Font property value is not set. For more information on this concept, please refer to Appearance Properties.

Note

The Font property is used only by some descendants of the XRControl class. For example, the XRPageBreak class ignores the Font property.

Example

This example demonstrates how to use the XRLabel control to create a hyperlink.

The code below creates the XRLabel control, sets up its appearance, and specifies its NavigateUrl and Target properties.

using System.Drawing;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

public XRLabel CreateHyperlink(){
    // Create a label for a hyperlink.
    XRLabel hyperlinkLabel = new XRLabel();

    // Set its main properties.
    hyperlinkLabel.Text = "DevExpress Inc.";
    hyperlinkLabel.Width = 200;
    hyperlinkLabel.ForeColor = Color.Blue;
    hyperlinkLabel.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 12, FontStyle.Underline);

    // Set its URL and target.
    hyperlinkLabel.NavigateUrl = "https://www.devexpress.com/";
    hyperlinkLabel.Target = "_blank";

    return hyperlinkLabel;
}

To add the hyperlink to the report’s Detail band, handle the report’s BeforePrint event:

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...

private void XtraReport1_BeforePrint(object sender, System.Drawing.Printing.PrintEventArgs e) {
    // Create a new hyperlink and add it to the report's Detail Band.
    Bands.GetBandByType(typeof(DetailBand)).Controls.Add(CreateHyperlink());
}

The label behaves like a hyperlink in a report’s Print Preview and in a document exported to HTML, PDF, RTF, XLS, and XLSX formats.
