About supported BIRT parameters in the IUIE

DATE and DATETIME parameters

Parameters published in the IUIE as either DATE or DATETIME are passed to the BIRT engine as Date class parameters; their values must have the following formats:

  • DATE parameters: MM/DD/YYYY or MM/DD/YY
  • DATETIME parameters: MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS or MM/DD/YY HH24:MI:SS

Allow Numbers Only

If Allow Numbers Only is checked for a BIRT parameter in IUIE publishing, the following rules apply:

  • If wildcards are allowed, the parameter value must contain only digits and wildcard characters, and is passed as a String parameter to the BIRT engine.
  • If wildcards are not allowed, the value may be any valid integer, decimal, or even floating-point number. For example, you can use a parameter value like any of the following for this case: 17, -1, 4.78, 6E+10.73. These values are converted to a Java Double class and passed to the BIRT engine.

Special effects parameters

Special effects parameters are used to direct the IUIE to perform a unique action. Such parameters are prefixed and suffixed with two underscores (e.g., __NEWWINDOW__, which, if set to "Y", directs the IUIE to show the output in a new window).

Other parameter types

All other parameters are passed to the BIRT engine as a simple String class.

Multi-valued parameters

The IUIE passes multi-valued parameters to the BIRT engine as a JAVA array of the associated type (per the above rules).
