The DataElementOutput element contains one of the values listed in the following table.

Value Description

Output

Indicates the item appears in the output.

NoOutput

Indicates the item should not appear in the output.

ContentsOnly

If the item is a text box with a constant value, such as a label, the item does not appear (NoOutput). If the item is a rectangle, the output is the same as it is for ContentsOnly. For all other report items, the item appears in the output (Output).

When used as a child of Grouping or DataPoint, the DataElementOutput element can only contain Output or NoOutput.
