Comments in the Report Designer (XMl source tab)

Hello all,

If you look at the top of the XML generated by the report writer GUI, there are comment lines there that look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

We are using a CVS repository, and always have to paste in our comment blank at the top of the XML directly before we check in the file, something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Now every time you change something on the report, the comment reverts back to the first one, and we have to paste in the CVS header all over again.

This is somewhat annoying (especially when you forget to put it in!), so does anyone know of anyway to change the heading permanently?

Thanks for any help

    You can set a template comment by in Windows --> Preferences --> Report Design --> Comment Template

    It will show up in the XML Source like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    Thanks for the tip. I put the comments in here, and CVS and our internal code release system picked it up & it works great...
