Description of a Frameset


With a frameset, you can display multiple files in a frame or in one window. You can only add tagged files to a frameset.

In the Report Designer, we will create a new frameset with the command “New – New Frameset”:

We get the following dialog window:

Here you can make the following changes:

  • Under Templates, you can arrange the frames horizontally, vertically, or in a custom arrangement.
  • In the frame you can define the source and the properties of the source.
  • On the sides of the frames you can enter “auto” or you can specify the size in percent or in pixels.
  • When you open the frameset, all sources that you have entered before will be displayed simultaneously in a single window.

With the insert file button you receive the files tagged as frame:

With the frame properties button you receive the following dialog:

The checked options for the frame properties take affect only in user mode:   

  • Hide horizontal scrollbar: If checked, the horizontal scrollbar isn’t shown in the frame.   
  • Hide vertical scrollbar: If checked, the vertical scrollbar isn’t shown in the frame.   
  • Hide sheet selector: If checked, the sheet selector isn’t shown in the frame.   
  • Use for export: In a frameset it can be established only one frame for export as xlsx-Snapshot, PDF or HTML. Without setting the frame for the export will be randomly selected.

When defining a  frameset, please avoid duplicate loading of files. Files loaded as frames in the frameset should not be defined as resource workbooks for another frame in the frameset at the same time.

By using a frameset, you can create comfortable report controls. See the article Example: Frameset.
