The Report Box

The report box is similar to the ACUCOBOL-GT standard frame control. A report box, however, does not have a title, and does not perform any special grouping function for controls displayed inside the box. Like the report line, this report element is useful for highlighting some portion of the report text. You might, for example, place a box around the report title as a way of framing the text, or place a box around a group of entry fields or radio buttons in the detail section to make them stand out from the rest of the page.

The report box does not have special properties. All report box properties are described in Common Report Control Properties.
