Text Widget

text-widget-iconThe Text Widget lets you add text to your report. By dragging in a text widget you can position it as required and enter the text using a WYSIWYG Editor panel. With this you can edit the text, change the styling, font, size, alignment, color, background color and insert hyperlinks. You can also copy and paste text from other applications.

Note that there is a contrast button in the bottom right of the text editor that
lets you toggle background/foreground colors. This is especially useful when working with white font color on the the white default background.

Further settings:

Variables – As well as adding static text to your report you can include data values from your feature service or linked CSV / Table. These can be incorporated into the text through the text editor as variable names.

Text Rules – Build intelligence into your report through the use of text rules. Using these you can do some simple tests against the data for the area being reported. e.g. display one block of text if the area is greater than X population and another if it is less than X population. Multiple rules can be added to single text widget.
