Todo List

  • Fix javascript kross plugin, or disable as it seems buggy, qtscript is ok. Now loads qtscript if available and javascript is selected - 3-Jul-2010
  • KWord Export
  • KSpread Export
    • Make row colour the same as section background
  • Add more script events, such as on_load, to complement on_render.
  • Properly sync size/pos properties between the editor and the item
  • Make report entities (label/field etc) plugins, so its easier to add new ones ?
  • Maybe use flakes, or create a report 'shape' that can be embedded elsewhere
  • Add more math functions
  • Undo/Redo support
  • Dynamically adjust page margins when page units are changed
  • Clean up the mess that is the barcode generators!
  • Custom page sizes
  • When pasting items, dont allow to go below bottom of section
  • Page number/total
  • HTML Export (maybe link in with webforms)
  • --Fix to use KIO instead of QFile etc to allow saving to remote dir
  • Allow functions defined in external scripts to be called, or add a 'modules' plugin as a place for user defined functions.
  • Speed up background drawing - seems more dependant on gfx driver.... raster engine is faster than intel! Dont use antialisaing, or do use raster is the answer
  • Sorting and Grouping for the datasource in KoReportData
  • Use ODF text paragraphs for label text and allow ODF text for report values --jstaniek 13:54, 6 February 2010 (PST)
    • we could paint whatever ODF allows for a paragraph; for now some ODF attributes map exactly to QFont attrs
    • this is handled in KoCharacterStyle::saveOdf(KoGenStyle &style)
    • but at gui level editing is the problem: (we will need support in forms to enter the data, as well as support in report designer, to enter the static label text in ODF format)
  • Future Item Plugins
    • Table Item
    • Sub Report
  • Add "Visible" bool property to any report elements including sections (Jstaniek 09:10, 27 April 2011 (UTC))
  • Add 'totals caching' feature
    • if the data source has not changed, do not require to render all the pages in advance, and just render pages on demand
    • some assumptions needed: data can be modified accessed with Kexi or with Kexi-compatible means, so on modification, tables that are used as data source are marked as dirty
    • Optionally support report snapshots: render the reports to QPicture and store it via data stream to a database
