Hello BIRT Experts,

I want to set the PDF render property "Page Style"  to "Actual size"  in iHub. I don't want to configure it in PDF Emitter xml since it will reflect in all the reports.


I would like to know how to set this option from Java component while scheduling a job to iHub and directly in report(if there is an option).


I am using "JobScheduler" object in iHub to schedule the job however i don't find any direct methods to set the report options for a job.


Please help on this.


Note: I am using iHub 3.1

What is the "Java component" that you are referring to?



IDAPI Wrapper (https://github.com/p...idapi-wrapper)?



If the IDAPI Wrapper, it doesn't currently support the ConversionOptions (https://github.com/p...bScheduler.java) in scheduleJob:

		if (outputFormat != null) {
			ConversionOptions conversionOptions = new ConversionOptions();

You can rewrite the wrapper, extend scheduleJob in the wrapper, or use IDAPI directly.

When scheduling a job you can pass conversion options as report parameters. I don't know the exact report parameter name for "Page Style", but I know names of a few others:
