Displaying an empty value with a text feature was deprecated. Or, you can select one of the following two options:

  • Use a template code to replace empty value with text. For example:

    Using normal

    Using macro

    #if (!$var || $var == "")
    #macro (replaceNullValueWithText $var)
     #if (!var || $var == "")
  • Use report wizard environment option to configure empty.

Add the property “template.output.on.blank.field” and value in the Report Wizard Environment option to enable this feature. The value of this property will be inserted in the generated output when the variable is empty (see Report Wizard environment options).
