Showing Checkboxes in a Report by itflash
Posted: 10 Apr 02

Instead of showing .T. or .F. in your report, I show ticked/unticked check boxes.  It looks much neater.

To display the checkboxes, I use the wingdings2 font, so you must ensure that you have this font and your printer can cope with it.


1. In your report, create a field.
2. Make your field use the wingdings2 font.
   - highlight the field,
   - menu option "format", option "font".
2. In the field put the following statement,
   adjusting it for your own cursor/table etc.

       iif(mycursor.field1), 'R', 'Q')

What this will do is display R if your field is .T. and Q if your field is .F.   HOWEVER, by using the wingdings2 font, a ticked or unticked check box will appear instead of Q and R!

Looks nice and very easy.
