Issues in exporting OOTB report definitions to PDF



When a Report Definition with custom section for filtering (inline) is exported to PDF, the styles of Custom section are lost in PDF generated.

Report Viewer:


Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a RD with Display filters using custom section and Display custom section inline enabled.
2) Export the report to PDF and observe the filters.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior as the Export To PDF functionality, does not pick up styles from the Application.


Perform the following local-change steps:
  1. Customize workform_pyreportingskin.css and pyReport_ExportToPdfStyles.css files for the styles to be applied in the exported PDF. 
  2. Generate the PDF and go through the Stream and tags for the inline filter section.
  3. Try specifying the styles for these tags inside workform_pyreportingskin.css and pyReport_ExportToPdfStyles.css.
