Java Question

How to wrap text around an image?

I'm trying to wrap my text around an Image.

The structure I need to create is as in the picture bellow:

enter image description here

This is what I have tried

I have tried using table which did not succeed. I tough of using text field as html and passing image to it and set the alignment to left, but I found out that it is not possible to pass the image in text field. I started to solve the problem using jaspersoft Studio pro and with its html element.
However I could not figure out how to pass the image field from data base as the html source. The expression in the html element is:

"<img src= '$F{Image}' align='left'/> <p>"+$F{KN_Zusatzinfo_DV_Einleitungstext} +"</p>"


This code does not show the image, but a box instead of the image.
And the text which is printed is not stretched. The page style which I use is two column. The HTML out put is as in the picture

example output

Using a static path like one bellow to an image works, but it is not an option for me since I need to read the Image from data base:

"<style>.left { float: left; margin-left: 1em; width :40%;}</style><p><img class = left src= C:/Users/iman/JaspersoftWorkspace/Qreport/sample1.png />


If I just use an Image Element with a text box under that the out put and design view are as these pictures:

Image and text field approach

Design view

The HTML source of the html approach is:

How can I achieve this structure?

Answer

If you use the html component to wrap text around image, not only do you have a problem of pulling the image from the database, the html component also creates an image of the html, hence the content may be resized/clipped depending on text length and settings on html (image) component.

I would suggest to use two textFields wrapped around the image (see jrxml) and then calculate where the text will break into next field, so you get first part of text in first textField and second part in second textField

Java code to calculate text's break point

This code demonstrate how you can use FontMetric to calculate where Jasper Report will break the text depending on the size of your textField (explanation of code is in comments). The code is not perfectly safe on NullPointer (null text) and on non over-flowing text, furthermore it can be optimized but I will leave this to OP

import java.awt.Font;
import java.awt.font.FontRenderContext;
import java.awt.geom.AffineTransform;

public class WrapImage {

    /**
     * Get position where string will break
     * @param text, the text
     * @param width, the width of the component
     * @param height, the height of the component
     * @return the position
     */
    public static int getBreakPosition(String text, int width, int height){
        //Start font context
        AffineTransform affinetransform = new AffineTransform();     
        FontRenderContext frc = new FontRenderContext(affinetransform,true,true);     

        //Set same font as used in jasper-report
        Font font = new Font("SansSerif", Font.PLAIN, 10);
        //Get height to understand how many lines
        double textheight = font.getStringBounds(text, frc).getHeight();
        int nrLines = (int)Math.floor(height/textheight);

jrxml example using java code

In this short example, I use a parameter with some arbitrary sample text. The WrapImage class is in class path. I set a variable to the calculated break point. Then use substring on the text to get first part in first textfield, second in second textField To simplify example, I'm using an image from desktop, for how to pull image from database see: Using images stored in database

But these three guidelines may help: Rudeness and belittling language are not okay. Your tone should match the way you'd talk in person with someone you respect and whom you want to respect you. If you don't have time to say something politely, just leave it for someone who does. Be welcoming, be patient, and assume good intentions. Don't expect new users to know all the rules — they don't. And be patient while they learn. If you're here for help, make it as easy as possible for others to help you. Everyone here is volunteering, and no one responds well to demands for help.
