Specifying element names
BIRT also assigns an element ID for each result set. As Figure 6-2 showed, each ID consists of the element type, an underscore, and a number, for example, Table_252 or Chart_312. If you are designing the report from which to generate a report document, you can specify more descriptive element IDs to describe the data in result sets.
How to specify an element name
Notice that the Name property is undefined. Notice, too, that the Element ID property has a read-only number, which BIRT automatically assigns to every report element. BIRT uses this number in the default result set name.
In Name, type a descriptive and unique name. A report cannot contain duplicate element names. Figure 6-5 shows an example of a name, Sales Chart, specified for a chart.
